The E39 BMW M5 is the greatest sport sedan BMW ever made. Today I'm reviewing the E39 M5 to show you why it's so loved, and I'm taking you on a thorough tour of this BMW M5. I'm also going to show you all the quirks and features of the E39 M5, and I'm going to drive the M5 to explain why I love it so much.

  • Best looking body of all time for BMW E39... The new body styles look very generic.

  • Nice! you got Ryan from E39Source's BMW. Best E39 channel on CSworld.

  • As a driver's car, how does this M5 compare to the E46 M3? The M3 is smaller, and I feel as though it should be mostly the same but smaller and lighter and more toss-able. I can't help but feel that size alone would make the M3 a nicer driver's car.

  • Doug doesn't even under basic concepts. 5:20 he talks about how much a bargain the M5 was back in 2000 at $72k compared to now, except in 2000 $72k is the same as $109k today... so the $103.5k price of the 2020 M5 is actually cheaper... Not to mention what the new M5 comes with vs the old.

  • M5 E39. It looks right from every angle, it feels right, it drives right, it’s one of those cars from back in the day everything connected perfecty together, and today it’s a classic.

  • The headlight shock warning I'm thinking was due to it being one of the earliest using HID lights that use a ballast. Some people replacing a bulb would not be aware the ballast could hold a high voltage charge not just 12v going to an old school Halogen. The poor owner realizing Doug just gave his perfectly preserved E39 car "scoring" less than a chevy SS. :p

  • I just bought an E39 530i manual wagon - very rare where I'm from, and I totally agree with Doug's assessment of the interior. One of the most timeless and high-quality interiors ever made in my opinion; the plastics and buttons are simply the best I've ever seen in any car. Modern cars simply do not compare, at least the ones I've been in don't.

  • I had the ///M540 for many years everything he said is accurate. It's the 296 hp version not the 400hp. He just left out one thing.....That "old glove that fits perfectly", it's unbelievably expensive to maintain..... SOME reliability troubles???? Come on Doug, This car can break some people's bank account and spirt. They are wonderful to drive look at , they are quiet, they're a fickle friend though.... Just when just love it the most....bam....$2,500.00

  • I saw this video as soon as it came out, but now I've been directed here again after watching E39 Source's wireless phone charging mod video. That video was made 6 months before this one - so basically this 20 year old E39 M5 will charge Doug's phone if he puts it in the tray beside the cigarette lighter socket.

  • These were the toughest scores yet... “The trunk is huge!” Practicality 5/10 “It’s the best looking sedan ever!” Styling 7/10 “This car is amazing to drive, just amazing feel.” Fun Factor 6/10 And shouldn’t the features scores be somewhat curved according to the era the car was made in? “Oh yeah this ‘57 Cadillac doesn’t have satellite navigation... features 2/10.” Some of the most bizarre Doug Scores yet... and that’s saying something.
