What's New in the 2018 BMW M5?

The M5 is all-new for this model year. The factory code is F90 (BMW nuts like that kind of thing).

Which M5 is the Best?

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.
