I was only fooled for a minute until I saw the date of the 1st post.
It's interesting how first impressions today are EXACTLY the same as first impressions 2 years ago. We all go through the same stages of M5 ownership:
Luxury or Sport?
How long until delivery?
They called! It's here!
First impression, AWESOME!
I could sleep in this thing (and may have to when the wife kicks me out for talking non stop about it)
First wax & pictures
Hope the NAV doesn't get me lost
She's past the break-in and getting better with age
The M5 DE
Then some may discover:
She was born to go to the track (but take care of the brakes)
The M Mobility System (or the lack thereof once stranded with a flat)
My first kill
My first mod
My first SES light
or the dreaded VANOS issue
or worse, the dreaded BMW customer service
Eventually for some:
Gee the tires wear fast when being tracked!
How much is a clutch replacement?
Then we take different paths:
I'll never trade the M5 for an e60!!!
or, I've gotta have a Z8
or, for some fortunate souls, Porche 996 TT or SL55.
But some keep coming back to the wonderful world of M5 ownership and the cycle repeats.
PS: I bet 90% of the posts matches one of the above.
