Approved Used BMW M5
About the BMW M5
The BMW 5 Series is one of BMW’s flagship models – and the M5 takes all of that impressive practicality and driving comfort and adds pulse-quickening high performance to create an excellent package.
The BMW M5 has a long and successful history. The M5 was launched in 1985 and has been through several redesigns and facelifts since, culminating in the sixth generation in 2017. The F90 BMW M5 was the first with four-wheel drive.
The M5 Competition and M5 CS were also later introduced to complement the used BMW M5 range.

Why Buy a Used BMW M5?
Supreme comfort and superb on-road performance – a used BMW M5 is a car of genuine character and a pleasure to drive. If you’re searching for the ultimate performance saloon, there are few more complete models than the M5 available. In fact, it’s a saloon with the look and feel of a supercar.
There’s so much to admire with the M5. BMW drivers might take performance for granted, but the M5 is arguably on a different level. The BMW M5 Competition has a mighty 4.4 litre M TwinPower Turbo 8-cylinder petrol engine that’s capable of delivering 625 hp, with torque of 749NM.
What this means for acceleration is 0-62mph in just 3.3 seconds, and a potential maximum top speed of 190 mph – if your used BMW M5 is fitted with the M Pro package. Even without it, the BMW M5 can hit a limited 155 mph. With its rapid acceleration, raw power, and responsive handling, the M5’s performance on the road is unrivalled. But driving a used BMW M5 is a joy beyond the high speeds it's capable of.
Adaptive M suspension adapts to your individual driving style and the road conditions to maximise comfort and control, while the Active M Differential improves traction and handling.
Drivers and passengers will feel thoroughly spoiled during their journeys in the M5. Used BMW M5 models are styled with a full leather interior and adjustable sports seats, so there’s no compromise on comfort. Seats in all models are heated, and if you want to boost the in-car experience further still, some have the optional massage function fitted to the front seats. Headroom and legroom is generous, so five adults can sit in the M5 with no trouble at all.
*Key features of a used BMW M5 can include:
- BMW ConnectedDrive
- Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
- BMW Live Cockpit Professional
- Heated steering wheel
- Front massage seats
- Adaptive LED headlights
- 20-inch twin spoke alloy wheels
- Leather interior
- Adaptive cruise control
- M Sport exhaust system
- Parking Assistant Plus
BMW’s critically acclaimed iDrive navigation set-up comes as standard, while there’s a head-up display and infotainment screen. Wireless charging, online services, and DAB radio are also included, and, as with other BMW models, there is the option of controlling it all using the rotary controller. This is positioned between the two front seats; touchscreen functionality is also available.
All used BMW M5 models sold by Dick Lovett come with a minimum 12-month warranty that provides unlimited mileage protection against breakdown and repair costs. The warranty is backed by BMW, and includes the exhaust, battery, and other parts. BMW Roadside Assistance and MOT Cover for 12 months are also included. Not only that, when you buy a used BMW M5 at Dick Lovett, every car has over 120 vehicle checks to ensure it’s in top condition.
Tips & Advice for Buying a Used BMW M5
In recent years, BMW refined its M5 range down to a single model – the M5 Competition (with the exception of the limited edition M5 CS which we’ll cover later).
So, if you’ve set your sights on buying a nearly new used BMW M5, your choice is likely to be limited to the Competition. Certainly, in terms of looking for a used BMW M5 for sale in the UK, the Competition is more widely available; the good news is that it’s a seriously impressive model.
The Competition has one engine option – the legendary 4.4-litre twin-turbo petrol – so there’s nothing to choose there. What is worth considering, even for a superior car like a used BMW M5, are the optional packs to enhance the driving experience even further.
Those options include the Technology Pack (Harman Kardon Surround Sound System), Comfort Pack (Electric Boot Lid), Entertainment Pack (Rear Seat Entertainment), Technology Plus Pack (Drive Recorder, Driving Assistant Professional) and Comfort Plus Pack (Front Massage Seats).
BMW Individual was also available on used BMW M5 models, which enabled owners to give their car a bespoke exterior colour scheme and interior styling.
Aside from the Competition, the BMW M5 CS may be available as a used model, though it’s much harder to find – not least as it was only produced for 12 months with a worldwide total production run of just 1,000 cars. This limited production cycle means it’s typically in high demand, and it’s quicker still than the Competition, hitting the 0-62mph mark in 3.0 seconds.
Whichever used BMW M5 you buy, running costs aren’t exactly low, with annual tax and insurance – the M5 is in one of the highest groups – likely to be expensive. But admirers of the BMW M5 will consider these to be a price well worth paying, in exchange for driving such a prestigious vehicle.
Dick Lovett can help to support your purchase of a used BMW M5, by offering a choice of finance plans to spread payments. Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) or Hire Purchase (HP) plans allow you to pay a set monthly amount for the length of the finance agreement. You can usually choose the length of the agreement to suit your financial situation, though 24 to 48 months is common.
PCP and HP work differently, so be sure to check the details before committing to a plan. You can learn more about the range of finance for used cars here, and discover our latest finance deals for BMW models here. Contact Dick Lovett BMW for more information on used BMW M5 models for sale.
