    First of all... why would you choose clips of standard 5series (not even M-sport styling) in a video about the M5??? Even pictures of the wrong engines...
    And also.. why is there no mention of the M5 Hurricane? That thing was one of the rarest M5s out there. G-Powered Evo II supercharged V10 with 730hp!

    E28 is the prettiest of them all.
    Also the story of the first M5 is way more interesting and refers to 7 series E23 745 turbo. The rumour says that CEO of BMW that time was using fast 7 series turbo limousine to travel around, which was frustrating to his bodiguards, who used E28 535 and couldn't catch up. So they asked Motorsport engineers to find a solution. So they did- that's how M88 engine found its way under the E28's hood. It was so nimble and fun to drive, that more and more BMW workers were asking Motorsport to build moe of 'em fast fivers. The Management found out, cut off the fun, but actually learned that mayybeeee people out there would like to have that kind of car... so finally they let M5 happen.

    E39 the best looking M5? I can't agree... I do like the engine (quite a lot, actually), but the best looking M5 (5 series in general) is the E34. Classic but not 'old'. And that's inside and out - a clean E34 is just soooooo nice. :)
    That's why I have 2... ;)
