WOW! How did this thread get restarted after sooooo much time..this has to be a first!
WOZZELS...no that wasn't me near Dressels....there are now a few M5's that I've seen around here in St. Louis...I have a titanium silver one and I've seen at least 2 others just like it..
PROv1...as far as I can remember..there is a WB button that you press to get the weather channel in the e39...Mine did not have NAV so I'm assuming you have the rectangular radio control panel...if so..it's there for sure..
As for my original comments from 2 years ago..I still stick by all of them...but as many others pointed out...they are minor complaints...I love this car and currently have 45,000 miles on it and intend to put at least that many more on it!
Repairs to date:
New shift knob x3...(peeling titanium) The last one being leather which I actually prefer...it just feels better...
new clutch which was replaced under warranty (not full maintenance) as they "discovered" a faulty throw out bearing (whatever that is) which caused premature wear. Face it..the M5 is UNDERCLUTCHED...
3 or 4 new sets of cupholders, I can't remember exactly how many..I don't care what people say or what the Germans think is right..I like a nice hot mug of coffee on the way to work!
New outside tempature sensor housing.. ( my fault....pesky little 8 inch curbs are hard to avoid sometimes!
2 new rims.....(potholes are a ***** on low profile tires)
only 1 ticket....51 in a 40...LAME!
Top speed I have ever hit...146 indicated...( I still think the cops are looking for me!)
