The BMW 5-Series has been one of the world's best driver's cars for many years. It offers sports car acceleration and handling that defies its size -- yet seats four adults comfortably. Now, there is a redesigned model coming for 2011...but we'll let you in on a little secret...some in the automotive press think the outgoing model out-handles the new car. It gets its magic from German chassis tuning, while the 2011 relies more on enhanced electronics. If you love to drive, you can feel the difference, and you want the 2010 before it's gone. Labor Day weekend, it's cheaper than ever.

We'll just take a stand and say it: this is the best American car. In sedan or wagon form it can corner with the Germans, and in asphalt-rippling CTS-V form it can outrun them in a straight line. And the short-throw shifter is something you have to feel to understand. Where does Cadillac get the nerve to discount this thing? We don't care. We just hope you buy while they're cheap.
