What can I say ?
Firstly I am gutted as I currently dont have an m5, secondly when I went to see Davidoli recently and saw her in his driveway I fell in love with her all over again.(absence makes the heart grow fonder).
I have had 3 m5's and they have all been a great experience.
I love the appearance (I love all e34's anyway) , IMO throwing stars are one of the truly great wheel designs, ever, the interiors are superb, particularly half alcantara as they grip you firmly in position in a way leather just doesnt (although a mint black extended interior is a joy to behold).The engines are an absolute work of art, just looking at those ITB & that cam cover with MPOWER emblazoned on it makes me come over all gooey eyed !
Then there's the driving experience, the roar of the engine & fantastic exhaust note (particularly my last decatted m5) which would stop people in there tracks where I live, with the older people giving me incredibly disapproving looks.
The handling is incredible as you fly into a corner, dab the brakes and then floor it when you see your exit , flying down country lanes at ludicrous speed and overtaking people late knowing with complete confidence that you will make it and scaring the pants of the person your overtaking in the process.
These cars just grab you by the heart, I drive an e60 as a daily driver and whilst its a great car it will never share the same emotional attachment as my last m5 .
BTW-I am starting a charity if anyones interested - its called G.P.B.I.A.M or Get Paul Back In An M5- donations gratefully accepted !
