Hi, new E60 M5 owner checking in!
2008, 6MT, 62k miles, Black Sapphire over Silverstone Merino full leather. Absolutely in love. It's the 11th BMW I've owned and the best car I've ever owned (my 2002 Porsche 911 is a near-tie for best car I've ever owned).
I looked on and off for over a year for a decent 6MT. Black exterior wasn't my first choice, but the price and mileage were right, plus I was holding out for a LCI car, with full leather, non-black interior and ventilated seats.
Interestingly, this car did NOT have DSC-off enabled (06/2007 build, and DSC-off was standard in 09/2007), which is good news for the drivetrain. Had that coded in at the dealer last week. I have a lift in my garage and plan to do the rod bearings myself later this year. Had to pay the dealer to enable the DSC-off, now it's a hoot to step the back end out around corners!
I'm in Cary, NC ... any other triangle area M5 owners out there?
Notable options, pretty close to what I would have ordered if I did it myself:
2MA Manual Transmission
X2xx Full Perforated Merino Leather with Alca
4MA M Multifunction Seats with Active Width
4MF Dynamic Seat Back Width Adjustment
453 Active Seat Ventilation, Front
610 Head Up Display
737 Interior Trim Alu Shadow, Brushed

I picked up this Black Sapphire Metallic over Portland Brown Leather Interior back in late December. She had 52k miles on her which I traded the dealer for $25k. It's an SMG, with a HUD, Comfort Access, Multi Function Comfort Seats and Rear Seat Heating.
It's my DD, well 3 days a week anyway. So far I love it, except for the SMG, still trying to figure that out.
The pics are seen here with my 850CSi. It's going to be difficult for me to drive anything with less than 10 cylinders from now on.

Been lurking on the forums now for a few months, thought I'd better post.
