I've heard of an M1 but never seen it until now and I think that looks like the sexiest BMW ever made. Either that or an M3 GTR which won the GT class in ALMS a few years ago.

My favorite Bimmer is the e46 330ci. But, when I think of the greatest BMW's ever made, I think of the Z8, 2002, and M coupe. But the car that takes the crown has got to be the e39 5-series. It has a perfect balance of performance and luxury, plus it is in my opinion one of the best designed cars ever. The BMW is classic and clean with a sporty stance. Not too extreme, but not to boring either:

MB doesnt own McLaren. They simply worked together on one car. I dont think BMW owned McLaren either. But I am not so sure.

Best BMW???

I'll have to go with the M3 GTR. I'm not a big BMW fan, but after seeing one in TOKYO...I was hooked. That and my friend has like a thousand pics of them.

I'm a fan of the early 00's M5. It's a mean sports car, but has that classy, understated look too.

Ya, I really liked the looks. A last gen M5 with the current (new) M5 powertrain and engine... that would be nice!

The owner of Sandia BMW, my local bmw dealership, was telling me about an Mcoupe he once saw that had an M5 engine and drivetrain. Im pretty sure that would be my favorite BMW ever, if only I got to see/sit-in/drive/drift it.

Remember, once you got to sit in it and drive it then you may never wanna get out of it, or have the incredible urge to steal it.

i'm with StiMan, windsonian, and NISSANSPDR on the previous-generation M5. my uncle has one of those and i just love the look/performance combination. just enough sport look, just enough typical-sedan look, and all that power through the 6-speed. mmmm
