Re: m5board.com acquired by Mercedes-AMG

So how much did they pay you for the board? 1,000,000 euro? Or did they tell you "April Fools" as well?

The change in ownership is effective immideatly. This concept will be further developed in detail in the coming weeks and will be submitted to the Supervisory Board of DaimlerChrysler AG for a final decision at the end of April.

Additionaly, BMW M5 E39 owners or M5 E60/M6 E63 deposit holders registred as members on m5board.com are eligable for a rebate of 7% of any Mercedes-AMG model worldwide.

More details will follow shortly.
Well done! You know, it does almost make sense...
