I passed the seven year mark three months ago, and yes, she still puts a smile on my face. In reading all the car reports on the horsepower wars out there, remember seven years ago when 400 HP was a big deal?
Thx for the complements, guys. I do my best to preserve her looking like new. Maybe this spring I will give her a full spa treatment and schedule an appointment with Erich Lipinski, one of the top detailers in my area.
I have to say that I have been in love with M5s before the E34 was even out, so this one is a keeper. The only other cars that have given me some room for thought have been the RS4, and to a whole lot lesser extent, the E60 M5 6-speed (for the latter I have more than a dozen reasons to dismiss it, starting from looks and ending with continuous DSC-on mode). Plus, I figure for the cost of a new E60 I can have a RS4 AND still get to keep my Beast, so a clear advantage there.
For better or for worse, the prices of our Beasts have taken a hit in the market, to the point that I simply do not find it even worth the consideration to sell her for a chunk of change that won't be material enough to put down towards the purchase of a venerable replacement for the Beast.

Sure thing, Sergio. Would love to come up your way once the weather firms up a bit, and been looking forward to trying that special home-made pasta of yours
Haven't installed them yet due to the nasty weather here on the East Coast, but look forward to a warm weekend soon when I will put on the Supersprint badboys and be ready to tear up some RS4 and upcoming M3s :p Who said a MILF cannot carry her own against the new kids on the block
