M5 Awareness

M5 awareness:

I believe I have achieved M-enlightenment and M-realization. For I know now that the M is the true Way to performance and satisfaction. The BMW M5 is like an icon of M-Carma. The moment you are in contact with its M-ness you know this is icon of specializM. Something good of car eons past.


When you first come in to the present of the M5 you first look down (as to say I’m not worthy... your majesty) at the M5 wheels “How lovely are the feet of the great one that bring good news”. Oversized high speed, high grip rubbers (The Road Noise is the music of Car-Zen). Realization that true performance (spirit) starts when the “tires meet the road.”


Then you look up at the cockpit and BMW grill (intakes)a thing of great pleasure and deliverance - a presence that would make most men feel a shame for staring… The tail so properly sized and designed. Its saloon design exposing its mastery of form (surface shape) to Newtonian fluid mechanics.


Then the Soul of the icon. The soul is the connection between man and machine. The M Motor. Its appearance puts us in aw. It's the recantation of Carno Engine. It is the solution of entopic equation (dS = dQ/T) that was so esteemed by Great Sokes of the pre M-Motosport engineering society. The motor looks like the offspring of BMW that mated with Ferrari or Lamborghini motor. Can manlove and revere a non human object? Can he feels its pain and its delight… As Mr. Spock does the Vulcan mind melting technique with the Horta (boring silicon life forms of Janus 6) – and feels “The pain and sadness” of these non human creature. But also understands its intelligent, powerful and desired to serve… Just as the M-motor obeys the commands of your right foot.

Took my M5 out for a spin (Figuratively) this weekend. It was ona nice winding mountain road in PA. I rarely took it out of second gear (I would just listen to the engine and felt lateral and linear acceleration force in my gut). As soon as I could her into 3rd I found myself flying into the curve...

I have 3 loves... Hot Euro-Cars (BMW and Porsches), Skiing (National Ski Patrol) and Martial Arts (Aiki-Ju Jutsu)... Someday if I find a cool M5/BMW license plate trim and I'll swap it...

The Exhaust came with the car (I don't like it... too throaty), I'll check to see if there is a Mfg name/logo.

PA roads

I was out cruising those same PA back roads myself this weekend - It was beautiful. I had to show a new 350Z who was boss. Needless to say, the owner was a bit surprised to be left behind by a boxy 1980's sedan. I would say about 50% of the fellow BMW drivers on the road gave me a thumbs up.

Thumbs down

All right! I wish I could have been there... It would've been a sight to see two black M5 saloons kicking some Z butt.

But we can't tell our moms or our wifes, they would forbode us speeding and pickin' a race with someone smaller, and slower then our elite 1370...

I love it.
