I've liked all the bmws we've had, now my uncle even has 2000 e46 328i it's the perfect balance.

Mikey wen u said the CTSV is faster are you comparing the E60 to the new CTSV or old one or the F10 to the new CTSV because last time I checked a 05 M5 is faster than a 05 CTSV and the f10 M5 is the fastest sedan around the nurburgring. UMad GMFanboy
Mikey Jimenez May 19, 2012
Calm down, I'm not trying to change anyone's mind.
Jackson Michael May 18, 2012
God damn I love BMW
Patrick Joseph May 18, 2012
Whatever floats your boat matey. In your mind the Cadillac is the better car. Fair enough. But nothing that you will say is gonna make us change our minds. You like the caddy for some reasons. We prefer the bimmer for some reasons. Both are good cars
Devin Babyn May 18, 2012
Mikey he didn't really imply anything towards performance. If he did imply anything it would be that it's better. Pretty big difference
Carlos Gallego Rodriguez May 18, 2012
@Mickey! The M5 won the Panamera turbo by 2 seconds. Before that, the panamera was the fastest
Carlos Gallego Rodriguez May 18, 2012
Thanks you Blue! Yes, i owm an audi. It was a present from my mum! And that's why i have that picture
Mikey Jimenez May 18, 2012
@Devin that's not what he said but that's what he wad implying don't be a smartass .
Patrick Joseph May 18, 2012
The Bugatti is faster than a corvette. How come you GM fanboys dont like it then? Faster means better. Before a moron tells me you can't compare the two tell that to your friends. "Oh! I'd rather have a vette"
Paul Dickey May 18, 2012
@devin pretty sure faster falls under everything Carlos said.
Devin Babyn May 18, 2012
Mikey and where did he bring up being faster?
Blue Label May 18, 2012
Or maybe Carlos has an Audi... Some of you are so quick to critique and judge people on CarBuzz
Paul Dickey May 18, 2012
@carlos AMGs look better. IMO
John Serely May 18, 2012
@carlos do you realize your picture is Audi? Or did you think it was BMW?
Mikey Jimenez May 18, 2012
@Carlos wow, that made you look stupid. Last time I checked the CTS-V was faster than the M5 around the ring?
Aislin Cooper May 18, 2012
This is the best article ever
Esam Mohammad May 18, 2012
Seriously !! Ur picture is AUDI
Nick Sti May 18, 2012
Lol your picture is Audi
Carlos Gallego Rodriguez May 18, 2012
So, 40 years of automobile perfection! Yes , i'm a huge fan boy and yes i'm one of thoose who think that the AMG, RS, Turbo, or V( cadillac ) badges has nothing to do when the big boy start to play! So, happy birthday ///M POWER!

Ha no joke...lets fill it back up
John Serely May 18, 2012
@jackson jeez your right. There were a lot more comments before on this picture
Jackson Michael May 18, 2012
Carbuzz censored the crap outta this
Alex Stanzel May 18, 2012
He's deaf so I think he has trouble speaking, much less typing.
Badoor Nasser Mobarak May 18, 2012
@black Honda , im sorry what da buck did u say , does any anybody understand his comments
Patrick Joseph May 18, 2012
Ah understand. People talk you make sense plenty. Ever happy listen you comments.
Black Honda May 18, 2012
I saw new car bmw the built bmw leith in north carolina. just believed 40 years that old car bmw as like no broken down engine, and i see old car bmw on highway has 1979 bmw doesnt trade new car bmw. I suprised lot people buy bmw not break down a stilling run without repair that bmw.
Paul Lissona May 22, 2012
BMW is my favorite brand and I'm glad to say we've owned some haha.
Nick El-Khoury May 19, 2012
Graham, yes, it is a masterpiece. They really are the last aggressive looking M car so I couldnt agree more on the E46.
John Serely May 18, 2012
Gorgeous, I don't know people don't like it
Graham Auger May 18, 2012
Very nice. I hate the look of the new 6 series, but love what they did with the M6. All cars in the M line up are beast though but nothing's taking the place of the e46. Now THAT was a masterpiece.
Sascha Wyss May 18, 2012
@ kenneth williams send me a friend request so we can talk about Bmw's :D
Dimitry Mikhailovich Malikov May 18, 2012
I can't figure out why nobody likes the rear, I think it's awesome!
Kenneth Williams May 18, 2012
This thing is beautiful.
Logan LeMonnier May 18, 2012
Maybe I'm mistaken but I think this is the one that has the hideous rear
Jordan Smith May 18, 2012
Total swagger wagon.
Sascha Wyss May 18, 2012
One of the best sound's ever!
Nevzat Erboy May 18, 2012
Oh yes. Now we are talking
Harry Collins May 18, 2012
Awesome! M5 Touring!
Paul Lissona May 20, 2012
Had 2001 525i and mom had 1998 528i, the 528i introduced us to BMW greatness.
Nick El-Khoury May 19, 2012
E39 M5, oh man, I should start a family so I can have a valid excuse for four doors. This is what the M5 is all about.
Carlton Salmon May 18, 2012
Want! This! Car!
Carlton Salmon May 18, 2012
Easily my favourite M5, current one included. There's a clip on YouTube with one if these with a race exhaust and headers which makes the best V8 sound I've ever heard. Played the clip dozens of times and still gives me goosebumps hearing it.
Chad Schley May 18, 2012
That is my daily driver. 2000 E39 M5.
Kevin Blockley May 18, 2012
Which kid wouldn't want a picture of this M5 on their wall?!! Almost every car you see on the road today use BMW as the bench mark.
Dimitry Mikhailovich Malikov May 18, 2012
That's the best M5!
Janak Solanki May 18, 2012
This will look good even 100 years from now
Graham Browne May 18, 2012
Best of the M5's, perfect balance.
gammo66 May 18, 2012
I've had 3 of these @ different times & god I miss it, the handling was so good, no body roll & surprisingly easy to drift.
Carlton Salmon May 18, 2012
And yes, John, it really is a blast to drive. With the stiffer suspension set-up and wider modern tyres, it corners almost as fast as any modern day coupé of similar size. And it's still is one of the best designed and practical coupés ever made IMO.
Carlton Salmon May 18, 2012
Thanks John. I've had nothing but praise and pleasure from owning it and it turns heads wherever I go. It's been modified with 18" Breyton wheels, uprated brakes, suspension and a sports exhaust which makes it the best straight six I've ever heard.
John Serely May 18, 2012
@carlton. I bet it is a blast to drive! Congrats, I would love to have one similar tithe one you have. Vintage ///M for the win!!!
Audi Tech May 18, 2012
One of the best Ms ever. I love that car.
Sascha Wyss May 18, 2012
Isn't this a 635csi?
Carlton Salmon May 18, 2012
I have one of these in Diamond Black with full M-Technic bodykit. Had it over 19 years and will never sell it. The only other M car I truly desire is an E39 M5, and after driving one a few years ago, I really want one badly.
John Serely May 18, 2012
Hell yea! I would loooove a older bimmer in my garage
Janak Solanki May 18, 2012
Whaaaat? ⬇ If you saw BMW's designs compared to all the other cars in the 80s, you would understand how advanced they were. So was Mercedes Benz, and they still are to this day.
Devin Babyn May 18, 2012
I truly do not understand the love for the older BMW's. To me they look like a prototypical shit box from the 80's
Igor Natsioks May 18, 2012
The best hands down!
Janak Solanki May 18, 2012
What a classic. Still looks stunning
Theo Hubbard May 18, 2012
The best M car IMO
Paul Lissona May 22, 2012
I like this a lot, one of the best looking cars then.
Jason Dannheim May 18, 2012
It's the one....
Logan LeMonnier May 18, 2012
This is my favorite one. It's better looking then some new cars
Janak Solanki May 18, 2012
Look at those naughty eyes!
Pi Ka Chu May 19, 2012
Lol that doesn't look like a BMW haha
Carlton Salmon May 18, 2012
I've been fortunate to have a go in one of these albeit a very short distance. But even then the car felt so alive and the throttle response was instant and it just wanted to rev. Such a nice car.
Jack Boekeloo May 18, 2012
Wow! That car looks great! They should redesign that with the same platform for 2013 and I bet they would get plenty of takers (including me) :)
Audi Tech May 18, 2012
I havent seen an M1 like that in years. Very very nice.
Jv May 18, 2012
Love the M1, It's always been one of my favorites.
Antonio Borja May 18, 2012
this thing is hideous. in my opinion
Peter Papen May 18, 2012
Awesome! I love it!!!
Abraham Mendoza May 18, 2012
It has to. I really want it to.
Timothy Hooker May 18, 2012
The m1 will return
David Gray May 18, 2012
That's the M1. Only mid engined car BMW have ever made
Jason Reimann May 18, 2012
This a BMW? Wow
Theviper007 Jun 02, 2012
What car.is this
John Serely May 18, 2012
I would love to be doing that right now...
David Gray May 18, 2012
Looks like an 8series to me.......
Anthony Minicozzi May 18, 2012
the m1 procar, love it
Rudolf Dassler May 18, 2012
I would love the Jägermeister!!!
Carlton Salmon May 18, 2012
How gorgeous and awesome do these cars look?
Cory Allen May 19, 2012
I don't think it's ugly, I love it!
Devin Babyn May 19, 2012
Probably the ugliest European car I've ever seen
Graham Browne May 19, 2012
Token bread-wagon comment. Also, obvious troll is obvious and drives a slower car than my grandma.
Logan LeMonnier May 18, 2012
Oh my god. That is the ugliest bmw I've ever seen. Sorry but it is.
balls deep May 18, 2012
My favorite car of all time! I love it!
Sascha Wyss May 18, 2012
It is one of the best handling cars of Bmw! in the turns much more stabil as a M3, but going sideways in it is on of the coolest things you can do.
Tanton Stoneman May 18, 2012
Like many women, ugly but talented.
Chad Schley May 18, 2012
They say it's one of the best handling BMW's of all time.
Peter Papen May 18, 2012
@ Das Stig.. There u go..
Sascha Wyss May 19, 2012
They got straight 6 cylinders
Graham Browne May 19, 2012
Whats a i6 mate? These ran a L4, S14.
Pi Ka Chu May 19, 2012
How the colours of the headlights are different?
Sascha Wyss May 18, 2012
I had sex haha but the sound of a i6 is better! #Eargasm
Daft Punk May 18, 2012
Best M model. Period
Blue Label May 18, 2012
Obviously Mr. Wyss has never had sex with that best feeling ever comment
Sascha Wyss May 18, 2012
I had the pleasure to take a seat in one of these E30 race cars it was the best feeling ever!
Graham Browne May 18, 2012
Ultimate M car! Legend.
Graham Browne May 19, 2012
Wha! Ugly? Noway, understated, unpretentious and timeless? Yes! And the Touring model is awesome, perfect 50/50 balance in a semi practical car that is great to drive! if
Pi Ka Chu May 19, 2012
I like this cars though. Still see them rarely Hahas
Pi Ka Chu May 19, 2012
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Logan LeMonnier May 18, 2012
Yeah with the exception of that hatchback they look awesome. You probably like impalas and Taurus' and grand prixs... BMWs are too simple to be ugly
John Serely May 18, 2012
I completely disagree with you, scott. I think they look AMAZING!
Scott Westphall May 18, 2012
Browsing this whole gallery made me realize just how HIDEOUS these cars are. They drive nice, but good lord are they ugly.
Kenneth Williams May 18, 2012
E30's in the house
