I just had a VERY interesting M5 siting/experience at lunchtime today. On the northbound (which is really westbound) PCH in Malibu, at the intersection at Webb Rd., four (count 'em! 4!) M5's pulled up to the light in box formation. Go figure. Maybe I shouldn't be surprised. This probably happens everyday in Malibu, but this was a first for me!
I was in the front in the left lane in my Sterling Grey E39. There was a black E60 right behind me. To my right was an Imola Red E39, and behind him was a medium blue E60. Suh-weeeet! I'm not 100% certain, but I thought I saw another E60 on the southbound (it's really eastbound) side in the pack of cars waiting at the light. Five in one shot?
I couldn't get my !@#$% iPhone camera out quick enough.
I turned off the DSC and when the light turned green I did a little pro bono re-paving of the PCH. I just love it when my Sumi's squeal in ecstacy! I reached the light at Pepperdine well ahead of my impromptu wingmen. No one wanted to play.
Either I was the only one in the bunch who was currently eligible to attend traffic school, or else the others saw the local donut patrol and I didn't. Oh well. No harm, no foul. The black E60 and I had a nice run up to Point Mugu starting a few miles up the road. I presume it was the same black E60 as before, but, those things in SoCal are like Chevys in Detroit. You see at least one on every trip.
It didn't last long, but it was surely cool. I wish I had gotten a plate or a pic. But, I figured that anyone else on the board who was there would remember that encounter, and post a shout out. That made my day!
