The E39 BMW M5 is the greatest sport sedan BMW ever made. Today I'm reviewing the E39 M5 to show you why it's so loved, and I'm taking you on a thorough tour of this BMW M5. I'm also going to show you all the quirks and features of the E39 M5, and I'm going to drive the M5 to explain why I love it so much.

The Turn Signal Stock feels solid because it has never been used.

The headlight shock warning I'm thinking was due to it being one of the earliest using HID lights that use a ballast. Some people replacing a bulb would not be aware the ballast could hold a high voltage charge not just 12v going to an old school Halogen. The poor owner realizing Doug just gave his perfectly preserved E39 car "scoring" less than a chevy SS. :p

11:45 the turn signal feels so good because it had never been used until you made this video.

I just bought an E39 530i manual wagon - very rare where I'm from, and I totally agree with Doug's assessment of the interior. One of the most timeless and high-quality interiors ever made in my opinion; the plastics and buttons are simply the best I've ever seen in any car. Modern cars simply do not compare, at least the ones I've been in don't.

I had the ///M540 for many years everything he said is accurate. It's the 296 hp version not the 400hp. He just left out one thing.....That "old glove that fits perfectly", it's unbelievably expensive to maintain..... SOME reliability troubles???? Come on Doug, This car can break some people's bank account and spirt. They are wonderful to drive look at , they are quiet, they're a fickle friend though.... Just when just love it the most....bam....$2,500.00

I saw this video as soon as it came out, but now I've been directed here again after watching E39 Source's wireless phone charging mod video. That video was made 6 months before this one - so basically this 20 year old E39 M5 will charge Doug's phone if he puts it in the tray beside the cigarette lighter socket.

These were the toughest scores yet... “The trunk is huge!” Practicality 5/10 “It’s the best looking sedan ever!” Styling 7/10 “This car is amazing to drive, just amazing feel.” Fun Factor 6/10 And shouldn’t the features scores be somewhat curved according to the era the car was made in? “Oh yeah this ‘57 Cadillac doesn’t have satellite navigation... features 2/10.” Some of the most bizarre Doug Scores yet... and that’s saying something.

Not going to lie but I cry from the inside because the cars these days doesn't show the passion they were made with back in those times. Every company has gone to quantity over quality. You know we see new cars launched every year with high horse power numbers yada yada yada and they have all the features and styling but we don't get excited to see them now as much as we did back in those days. Cars are very boring these days and I don't know why.

Btw the cupholders are only bad for American standards. Here in Germany (for whom those sized cupholders were engineered for) practically every 0.5 Liter bottle/Coffee cup fits perfectly in them. Sehr schönes Auto. Irgendwann werd ich in die Fußstapfen meines Vaters steigen und auch dieses Meisterwerk fahren.

HAIR LOSS is also a topic of major interest to MEN so go to and learn about a NEW science which explains that the main cause of HAIR LOSS is not DHT but a blockage of BLOOD FLOW caused by a tight LOWER scalp layer called the GALEA. This causes a low OXYGEN condition called HYPOXIA and this then causes DHT to be over-produced and only then the DHT becomes the “ killer ” of hair. Normally DHT is good for proper hair growth and all male characteristics, so screwing around with reducing DHT is a BAD idea because it has serious consequences like ...IMPOTENCE. The OLD methods have failed because they focus only on DHT and not on the MAIN cause...which is the disruption of the BLOOD FLOW to the scalp..." layman's logic ". This new method has over 28,500 members all over the world with a success rate of more than 95% and uses no drugs, no lotions and no surgery.
