7 What is the best BMW M5 in your opinion?

Cover for What is the best BMW M5 in your opinion?

So, me and my friend were talking about the great M5 when we realized how much controversy there was around what the best M5 truly is. Many people prefer the classic, aggressive E39 or the modern, more complex F90. I wanted to hear your favorite generation of the M5, to see what you have to say. I will admit something now.
My favorite is the E60.
Yeah, it was pretty unreliable, but aftermarket parts were always an option, and it’s really worth risking for the mighty 5-liter 507-hp beast of a V10. They decided to stick to V8’s after the beauty that was the M5’s engine.
But, I want to hear what you like best. So tell me in the comments what you prefer of all the M5 generations.

I had the E60 M5 for five years. It is the best car. Endless emotions and always grinning (except at the gas station). As an everyday car, the cost was extreme, but worthwhile. He wasn't going so well in the low rpm, but from around 5,500 rpm he cast a spell over you

E60. Because of the sound.

The E39 is a great car.

There’s a whole big difference in the beat M5 to drive versus the best M5 to own.
M5s when there were manual transmissions for about 400hp were really nice driving machines. Current M5 is very fast, but quite boring. I think the last generation was the worst. Wasn’t engaging and couldn’t use the engine performance either because of the lack of grip

I hated the F10 too. I once compared track times of all the M5’s (on the same tracks) and the F10 was slower than the E60 on a track, and barely faster than the E39.
