Autocar was impressed with the F10 M5 (no surprise there) and it shows in their review. We particularly like their verdict that the new M5 is a landmark car in many respects. Read on for the crucials details.
The first drive reviews of the F10 M5 have begun rolling in. Insideline has just posted their first impressions of BMW’s newest M5. Their verdict? They call the F10 M5 a better overall sport sedan compared to the E60.
