Power, handling, technology ... all awesome; high-quality interior; fantastic front seats
This car costs more than $100,000, and BMW wants to charge $300 for Apple CarPlay smartphone integration
The M5 is all-new for this model year. The factory code is F90 (BMW nuts like that kind of thing).
It looks like the premium midsize sport sedan class has a new king. If the funds are there, the fun can begin. We recommend the extraordinary Bowers & Wilkins audio system.
