Actually, I believe sunroofs are standard on all M5's...and xenon's, angel eyes, and widescreen monitors are standard on all 2001 and up M5's. Enjoy the ride!

Hi Mart.

I am actually here in the US. Seatlle, Washington. But I've been to England many times for business & pleasure. Beautiful place you have there!

I have blue M5 also. Good choice on the color. I think this is the best color for this car (IMO).

My mistake, I'm so used to the area of England I come from being referred to as the north west, I (very ignorantly) assumed you where from England yourself.

But thank you for the kind words! Like most countries, we do have some nice places, and we need them, to escape from the not-so-nice places. (and to drive our M5s around in)

I know what you mean. Well mine is dark tinted glass, with electric pop-up and retract, and it has the manual shade underneath inside the car. I think sun roofs are a less sought after option these days, especially here in the UK, as air/con is being increasingly fitted as standard.

But it's still nice to have, you can never have too many options :-)

That's funny, mine isn't "lumpy" at all...
Wait a minute, I live in Los Angeles where it doesn't ever get cold...

Welcome to the board...It's nice to have you.

Now you're just rubbing it in!!

I envy you, especially on days like today, when all it's done is rain, and I wanted to get out and polish the beast too

Thanks for the welcome!
