I've watched pretty much every YouTube video of the M5 (I know, I know...), and this one is pretty good for learning about the intricate features of iDrive and other gadgets. Not a big focus on evaluating performance, but his closing comments seem spot on. Hard to find a better all-purpose sports car!

I actually like Doug's reviews... he has a slightly different format which lately is rare. So many of them sound exactly the same now.

Good info and some great features. Most of the items mentioned would not be major selling points for me.

I love Doug's videos... you can tell that while he isn't always the MOST informed reviewer, he seems sincere and he loves cars. He's also a bit goofy like a normal person and doesn't come off like a giant douche-bag like other Vehicle reViewrs who are more stroking their egos instead of focusing on the cars.

My biggest concern was the ZF 8 spd auto, and the quick shifting is relieving.

Better than most reviewers sure. But man, this was difficult to watch. 20 minutes on the "neat gadgets" & sh*t. I.e. unnecessary crap that will break in the future.

I've been watching Doug's videos since the beginning of his channel so I'm obviously a fan. However I didn't enjoy this review much. It's 90% tech, may as well be CNET. Pretty boring overall.

Plus the car has black on aluminum interior which = exceptionally dull. Should have picked a better example.

doug thinks his land rover defender is "quick. it just feels quick. and watch this nifty button and what it does. also, it's quick"

if you managed to make it through this entire thing, god bless you.

I always end up watching his reviews just for fun, I'm just waiting for the day he talks about something that we all don't know haha. I guess it's a little different with me because I work at a dealership but c'mon Doug, you can find virtually all those "fun" things in a 530i lol

Anyways, I've driven the F90 about 5 times total and every time I get into it, it puts a smile on my face
