The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 BMW M5 has electrifying performance, but is saddled with an overdose of technology and a body in need of a few nips and tucks.
Like American gangsters, the 2008 Chrysler 300 exudes a kind of cool that is coveted by all, but attained by few.
