The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.8
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. Still turning heads after five years on the road, the 2009 Chrysler 300 is one of the kings of cool in the large sedan market.
