I had an e39 M5 before my e60 - and while all the tech improvements are true, there's just no comparison between the cars. Granted it was an M5 and had the ponies and a 6spd, but it was also a car...

I have had 24 years of great BMWs. The best one ever, an e39 M5, would suck down 1.5 quarts on a 500 mile trip. God I loved that car - made me happy to give her some oil at the end of a hard day on...

I miss that L7 - best audio system BMW has ever put in a car (at least since 1985).

I test drove a 535i without it specifically to see how it was - I think it felt more like a BMW. I would not have ordered that option again. But you should drive and see for yourself.

Sport button is definitely the FUN button. Sure, you'll get 14mpg around town, but if that's a worry, probably got the wrong car. Sport and Paddles are a blast on twisty mountain roads.

And, Q, thanks for the props.
