Space and power in one ride – that’s a description some might pin on the new 2008 BMW M5 Sedan. Its impressive Comfort Access feature allows the driver to unlock the vehicle by simply touching the door handle. The engine can also be started or stopped at the push of a button, without inserting the key.
The ‘08 M5 has endless possibilities with its V10 engine putting out 500-horse power. It also uses a 7-speed manual gearbox, which was designed to make the most of the high-performance engine.
There are hardly any worries while driving the M5, even in the event of an accident. With the available BMW Assist program, the driver can get help at the push of a button, and there are crash sensors to let other drivers on the road know that the vehicle has been involved in an accident. This tech-savvy feature, along with others like the Bluetooth capability and Park Distance Control, which assists the driver by alerting them of nearby objects that might be unseen while parking, are proof that the M5 puts competition to the test when it comes to innovation.
Working on the outside appearance, which is bound to turn heads, of the M5, are exterior features like this model’s standard or metallic paint, M rear spoiler and twin-chamber exhaust system with twin dual chrome-plated tailpipes. Other features providing convenience include rain-sensing windshield wipers with Automatic headlight control and headlight washing system and a tire-pressure monitoring system.
The 2008 M5, though a sporty ride, keeps safety in mind. Standard features include dual front airbags, head restraints, and side-impact protection. There’s also an interlocking door anchoring system, and automatic locking retractors on all safety belts for installation of child-restraint seats, showing this model was designed with the family in mind.
BMW’s 2008 M5 Sedan is advanced, safe and reliable, and seems to have something for everybody when it comes to buying a new car.
