Great video! Thanks for sharing.

Having owned or leased every generation M5 starting with the E39 this was certainly a trip down memory lane.

Yup, I'll have the E28 M5 as well. I actually did, for a short time. It was magical.

E39 M5 in Anthracite! The first BMW I ever drove. I was 18 and knew then it was BMW or bust.

Awesome awesome video!

Best Overall: My overall pick would be the E60 because of that V10.

Best Steering Feel: E39 M5

Best Handling: The F10 wins for best handling. Many people don't realize the weight distribution in the F90 is 55/45 where as the F10 is 52/48 and yes it makes a difference. And I agree with Tiff that the F10 was a big step up in handling from the E60 even though the F10 weighed 400lbs more. And for those of you that don't like math, the F90 M5 is about 132lbs/60kgs more nose heavy than the F10 M5. The next time you go to the gym, try benching 132lbs and imagine holding that over the nose of your car while your in a turn.

Best Looking: E28 hands down wins for best looking M5.

Best Comfort: E60 wins again for best comfort, those Comfort Seats (Not the Sport Seats which were in the E60 M5 they drove in the video) in the E60 are the best I've ever experienced in any car I've ever driven, period.

Best Tech: E60 with those Active Seats. You could see the TIFF's reaction again when he hits that M button.

Best Exhaust Note: E60 because Racecar

Best Utility and every day grocery getter: F90 because ZF8 Auto and AWD.

Best Nissan GTR bruiser: F90 because MxDrive

Best stop light racer: F90 because MxDrive

Best inspiring exterior design: E39 M5. It's reach classic status and isn't even 30 years old yet.

Least inspiring exterior design: F90 M5. It's like an F10 M5 and an F85 X5M got together and made a bastard child.

Most special M5: E61 Estate M5. I mean its a BMW station wagon with a 5.0L V10 in it. That kind of car will never be made again.


Rumors are the next generation GXX M5 will be the first full hybrid ///M car ever. BMW has already admitted that the V8 has an expiration date. We will probably see some form of an In-line 6-cylinder engine paired with electric motors and a battery pack in the next BMW M5. Expect fuel economy to dramatically increase and performance too. Problem is still weight, God knows how much that Porsche Panamera E-Hybrid weighs. Even the new Porsche Taycan is 5,100lbs. The future is interesting for sure. Until then, 600+hp Flat Plane Crank Naturally Aspirated V8 engine revving to over 8,000rpm in the 2021 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 anyone? Hell yes.


And anybody who says the ZF8 in the F90 shifts just as quick as the DCT in the F10 needs to get their head examined. You could literally see Tiff's reaction when he shifted gears in the F90.

RPI M5
I am with you in every word ..E60 M5 is totally different car..I have the E60 and this car when M buttons engage is a true m car.
But there is something a bout E39 M5 it is just make you feel the car you want to drive ..it is beautiful car all around.
G series m5 with V6 ..well we do not know what future hiding from us.
I like your focusing in this generation.

Thank you

I'm old enough to have owned all variants, but the co-driver sums it up for me.

The F90 is a 365 day a year car and you can't have that level of usability in the previous models.

To obtain that, generally everything has to 'soften', but personally, I think they've achieved that superbly.

I'm a modern kind of guy I guess...

I love them all, but I still think the E39 is my favorite, and the E60 exhaust tone is to die for.

I've driven nothing in between. A 33 year gap in 5 series ownership. Is this some kind of record?

I owned three in row during my high income years. The first was e34, 2nd e39, and e60. My favorite was the e39 Dinan S2. The best combination looks, performance and exclusivity. I sure the 2020 M5 Competition is great. Now I'm driving a M2C and it's really a fun car.

No unfortunately we did not keep her. She was impressive for her time but suffered from electrical glitches. As a broke 23 year old I had to let her go.
