Car Review: 2006 BMW M5 4
Car Review: 2006 BMW M5 by DAVID BOOTH, CANWEST NEWS SERVICE AUGUST 10, 2011 This isn’t the best road test of BMW’s M5. That honour would rest with Jeremy Clarkson, auto journalist and general-pain-in-the-ass-to-car-companies in merry old England. He has the advantage, of course, of having provided his erudite discourse on BBC’s Top Gear, the best auto show ever produced on TV by anyone’s account. He has the further advantage of the BBC not accepting a penny of advertising’s filthy lucre. So, Clarkson revels in his independence. Indeed, he sometimes seems to go overboard with his rants for no other purpose than to rile the public relations personnel who must explain to the corporate bosses why he just trashed their perfectly sound automobile to 58 million Britons. But, man, is he ever entertaining! Think comically curmudgeon Don Rickles behind the wheel of a Ferrari. The bons mots never stop coming. BMW’s U.K. staff might not think so, though. Certainly, there’s some explaining to do regarding his review of the M5. Starting with his confusion regarding BMW’s iDrive, Clarkson ranted about chimes that wouldn’t stop, the audio system that would (at inopportune times) and trying to figure out the seven-speed sequential transmission’s 12 — or is that 17? — modes. Having ranted on occasion myself about the same foibles, I feel Clarkson’s pain; though as noted, he does exaggerate methinks for that which addicts all TV personalities — ratings. The 5 Series’ iDrive, for instance, is not as diabolically complicated, or deficient, as the original system. Manual changing of radio stations — my personal bugaboo — is now a doddle, the air conditioning controls are easier and there’s now a menu button that returns you to home base should you get hopelessly mired in Digi-Land. That said, there’s nothing hidden in the bowels of this iDrive that I miss when I drive other cars. It is neither a reason not to buy the M5 nor a compelling reason to buy it. Would I prefer an old-fashioned centre console? Call it a wash, then. I, unlike Clarkson, have also come to a similar understanding with BMW’s paddle-shifted sequential manual transmission. I’d be happier with a six-speed regular gearbox, but BMW has refined the system enough that shifting is smooth enough that my head no longer bobbles like the dog dolls so ceremoniously perched in the rear window of old Hyundai Sonatas. BBC’s favourite presenter disagrees, of course, but he’s paid to be deliberately obstreperous. Just when you think he’s about to pooh-pooh everything about the M5, Clarkson ventures out into the English countryside and, suddenly, his demeanor changes. Gone is the scowl, replaced by a smile so wide you’d swear he had just been garotted in a Quentin Tarantino blood-fest. As much as he ranted against the M5’s foibles, Clarkson raves even more fervently about its talents, at one point calling it the best car he’s ever driven, comparing it — favourably — to the best from Ferrari. And he’s right on the money. Yes, BMW’s fascination with electronics can be a tad frustrating, but when it comes to cars, especially this car, it knows no equal. There’s a combination of delicacy and brute force to the new M5 that no other car can come close to emulating. First, there’s all that power — 500 horsepower from a V10 very much like the one that BMW uses in its Formula One racers. Red-lined at 8,250 — an astronomical number for a 5.0-litre engine — it fairly screams power. Disable the traction nanny and use launch control and it’ll spin those huge 285/35ZR19 Continentals at will. It’ll chirp them again going into second. And seriously strain their tractive abilities in third. By which time you’d better have paid your lawyer his quarterly retainer because, if John Law sees you, you’re not passing Go. Yet, despite all this power, there’s an amazing level of precision. The V10’s horsepower rating is almost identical to the new Dodge Viper‘s. But unlike that monster-motored roadster, the M5 never, ever feels like it will lose control. BMW builds a speed limiter into each and every M5, but there’s no doubt that the squat, mid-sized sedan would blow right past 300 kilometres an hour given its own head. As is, I hit 270 km/h and the thing was still pulling like a freight train. BMW claims a zero-to-100-km/h time of 4.7 seconds. That seems conservative. As for road holding, you’ll have to get track-bound to even remotely test the M5’s comportment. Despite relatively comfortable suspension befitting even a performance-oriented sedan, it handles like a dream. Turn-in is pinpoint sharp, the steering is as precise as the very best of sports cars and, with a 50/50 weight distribution, the car always feels perfectly balanced in corners. The powerful, 374-millimetre front brakes may take some getting used to, but you appreciate that much whoa power when you have 500 ponies under your right foot. So the new M5 isn’t perfect. I guess what frustrates me most is that it could have been the first perfect all-round car had BMW made the sequential gearbox and iDrive an option, leaving us boring old farts to our retro manual gearboxes and simple instruments more easily deciphered by us Luddites. But neither detracts from the fact that this M5 is the most sublime sports sedan ever. Even Clarkson agrees on that point. THE SPECS TYPE OF VEHICLE: Rear-drive luxury sports sedan ENGINE: 5.0L DOHC V10 POWER: 500 hp @ 7,750 rpm; 383 lb-ft of torque @ 6,100 rpm TRANSMISSION: Seven-speed sequential manual BRAKES: Four-wheel disc with ABS PRICE: BASE/AS TESTED $115,500/$122,000
