For the first time ever, the BMW M5 comes standard with all-wheel drive. But the tail-out, Full Opposite Lock, burnout-thirsty hoons out there can relax, because there’s also a rear-wheel drive mode in that all-wheel drive system just as the M-gods intended. Here’s how it works.
BMW followed up yesterday’s leak of the all new G50 5 Series with the full release today, revealing the all-new platform, engines and specs, including the revelation that the new M550i currently beats the outgoing M5 from zero to 60 miles per hour.
Photos of the upcoming next generation G30 BMW 5 Series have found their way onto Germancarforum, and now here! And, well, yea. That’s a BMW that looks somewhere between the 3 Series and 7 Series, I guess.
BMW will build a total of 200 “Competition Edition” M5 sedans, 100 black and 100 white, with a substantial power bump and a few tasteful decorative bits. Is it special enough to be a viable investment, or would you rather just take it out and just drive the tires off it?
While most people in the US are wondering if the 2016 presidential election is actually just a big hoax, some insane reality show put on by Trump, I’m thinking: “hmm…maybe I should’ve bought the E60 M5 instead of the IS-F?” Buyer’s remorse, was it?

As I’ve said before, I love machinery that has a singular purpose. Too many devices try to do too much, and fall short. Spreading yourself too thin creates a weak product. That’s how you wind up with the Transformers movies. They try to appeal to absolutely everyone, and in turn, become disposable and forgettable.…

The Mercedes E-Class is a classic over-engineered German sedan, but that’s not a bad thing. What do you need to know before you buy an E-Class? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in our Buyer’s Guide.
V8-powered Volvo 240s are as common as spray tans in Minnesota. Not that there's anything wrong with that (the swaps, not the tans). Hell, we built one and raced it. But one particular Scandinavian decided to take it to the next level with a V10 pulled from the last-gen BMW M5.
In recent years BMW has somewhat muddied the water with respect to M cars. First they started making their standard cars available with option packages that made them appear nearly identical to their M equivalent.

Buying a fast car is one thing, but taking it to the drag strip is the leap of faith that lets you find out how badass your ride really is. Doing well can bring elation, but falling short of your own expectations can really ruin your mood.
