Speaking of simpler, BMW has made the standard iDrive electronics interface a more user-friendly piece of technology starting halfway through the 2009 model year. We strongly suggest waiting to get one of these cars. You’ll be able to tell the difference between the two systems by the new design’s menu buttons for frequently used functions (stereo, navigation, telephone) that are now adjacent to the control knob. Redesigned menus are also more logically arranged now, while the navigation system features a hard drive and real-time traffic information.

In its effort to create the most technologically advanced super sedan ever, it almost seems as if BMW forgot to imbue the 2009 M5 with a soul. No question, the M5 is still a world-class speed machine, but other high-performance four-doors like the Mercedes-Benz C63 and E63 AMG, BMW’s own M3 sedan and the mighty Cadillac CTS-V are more satisfying to drive. As John Denver may have sung, we’re falling out of love with the 2009 BMW M5.
Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options

The 2009 BMW M5 is a high-performance variant of the midsize 5 Series luxury sedan. Standard equipment on its lone trim level includes 19-inch wheels; performance tires; adaptive xenon headlamps; front and rear parking sensors; M sport settings; auto-dimming mirrors; a sunroof; dual-zone automatic climate control; a power tilt-and-telescoping steering column; heated front seats; power sport seats with power-adjustable side bolsters, headrests and thigh supports; front-seat memory; leather upholstery; iDrive electronics interface; navigation system with real-time traffic and voice commands; Bluetooth and a 13-speaker Logic7 surround-sound system with a CD player.

Options include soft-close automatic doors, keyless ignition and entry, fold-down rear seats, upgraded power front seats, a power rear sunshade and manual rear side shades, extended leather trim, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, a head-up display, an upgraded sound system, satellite radio, HD radio and an iPod interface.
Powertrains and Performance

The 2008 M5 boasts a high-revving 5.0-liter V10 that generates a maximum 500 hp at 7,750 rpm and 383 pound-feet of torque at 6,100 rpm. Sending power to the rear wheels is the standard seven-speed sequential manual gearbox (SMG), an automated-clutch manual that can be placed in a fully automatic mode or operated manually via the gearshift lever or steering-wheel-mounted paddles. A six-speed traditional manual transmission is a no-cost option.
