When you offer one trim, the shopping is easy for the consumer. The M5 comes loaded, but that’s expected for a six-figure, high-performance sedan.
The exterior features 19-inch wheels, adaptive LED headlights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, power-folding and heated side mirrors, a rear spoiler, a hands-free power trunk, and an adaptive M suspension.
The cabin is roomy, bright, and laid out in exceptional materials, including high-end leather, metallic trim, and Alcantara. The upholstery and headliner are leather, the dashboard is leatherette. Fine woods or carbon-fiber trim are visually pleasing.
A long list of cabin amenities includes 20-way power front seats with lumbar support, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, four-zone automatic climate control, and ambient lighting.
The Executive Package ($3,350) adds massagers to the front seats, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a surround-view camera, a drive recorder system, and soft-close automatic doors..

Buying a 2021 BMW M5 means customizing one as you see fit. The Executive Package is the most sensible of the bundled options choices, though we think the Driver Assistance Plus Package warrants consideration as well.
