talking My first....

Hello to all!

I recently became the proud owner of a 1993 US spec M5. What an automobile! I purchased her in Loveland, Colorado and drove back to my hometown of Lenoir City, TN.

Nice ride. Someone else just posted a Calypso Red with gold BBS wheels and that looked real good also. Although I prefer the turbines.

Thank you Guys!

I plan on leaving it pretty much stock, as it's a blast to drive and in great shape. I wouldn't mind installing a different steering wheel though. I saw this one at a local show, but wasn't able to chat with the owner, any idea what it's from?

That wheel looks like it has been retrimmed. E 36 M3's and many E34 M5's had that style wheel but without the fancy leather and stitching. A custom job.

I was in TN recently, and saw so few BMW's it make me sick. Too many trucks and dull US cars.

"Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn-out,shouting, 'Holy sh*t! What a ride!'"
