    2000 BMW M5

    She Drinks Too Much, But She's to Die For

    Pros: That 5 liter screaming V8 muscle under the hood

    Cons: Gas Mileage

    How much do I like this car? After owning it for about four years, I still look for reasons to drive it. I'm torn, because of the need to burn less fuel to help our planet. Sure, performance sedans have gotten even more powerful as the newer models have come out, but this baby is so fast, I doubt I'll ever want for more power. Those gnomes in the Black Forest got the magic right when they dialed in the handling and comfort too. It's a kick to take the 'beast' through the twisties and to blast for hours down the freeway in quiet comfort. She's been reliable, only burning through one clutch because I didn't appreciate the ease with which 400 hp can wear out a clutch when you don't do it right. Will we ever part? Maybe. That is, if they ever make a package that does all this, looks good and has a hybrid drivetrain that gets planet-saving gas mileage too!
