It was no less than a crowd struggling to have a glimpse of the speed monger machine at the hall no 9 of the Pragati Maidan where the new as well existing BMW cars have been showcased. However, the anticipation and craze that was there for BMW Mini Cooper series cars was quite absent during the launch of BMW M5. It could be the BMW M5 price or that India may not have proper roads for a sports car like this. Early BMW M5 reviews have been very promising and the car has been graded to be best in fuel economy and day to day driving and overall a great saloon on the market.
