  2. 1986 BMW M5 or 2003 M3 CSL for me!
    Don´t like the new M5 design. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
  3. new M5, the 5 series dosent look bad in person and im sure pictures dont do the M5 justice
  4. 70's & 80's Bimmer pwn 4LL
  5. Useless poll... everybody would vote for the old one regardless of what they really feel, because it's just so fashionable to prefer older cars. I go for the 2004, even though the older one is amazing nonetheless.
  6. if given free to me, the 04.. if i had to buy it the 86.. if i needed the car and had the money and the right sub 50,000 mile 86 came along = on the spot.
  7. My heart says 1986. My mind says 2004.

    If given for free, it would pretty #$%#ing stupid to take 1986 over 2004. If I were to buy one, E28 M5.

    When I get rich. I will buy all 4 M5s: E28, E34, E39, E60.
  8. E34 3.8L M5 please! no V8's...
  9. I'd take the E60
  10. I like the looks of the 2003 M5 better, but it's not a paddle shift like this one is, so I said this one.
  11. I like the looks of the 2003 M5 better, but it's not a paddle shift like this one is, so I said this one.
  12. E60 without a doubt.
  13. its an O5 M5, not 04. I'd take the E28; I've always liked the older BMWs.
  14. either the '03 or '86 M5.
  15. The '86 looks better, but the '04 is just too awesome.
  16. YOu should put other in your polls if you want a good result.

  17. E39 M5...
    The most new BMW's look like shit....
  18. 2005 M5. wink
  19. The new E60 version. The M5 has continually gotten better as time goes on. I thought that nothing could beat the E39, but this just might be it.
  20. I'd take the E60 if it was cheaper but E46 looks better when modified
  21. I'll take the 04.
  22. i would take the new one
