DMV Spotted Thread

I searched and didn't see one of these for our area, so thought I would get it going.

I was driving through Alexandria this morning and spotted a beautiful E39 M5, jet black or possibly carbon black turning off of route 1 onto route 7. Looked/sounded like you had exhaust. Looking good!

(DMV is Washington DC, Maryland, Virginia)

Good call, Charles. The Spotted Thread in the E39/Z8 section is mostly west coast spottings.

Are you lowered L? It could be my eyes playing tricks on me, but it looks like your car is lower than the other one.

I did notice that when looking at the picture. I think it is a depth of field thing - as far as I know my shocks/springs are OEM.

I also really want euro headlights.

Its funny. In my life I've seen less E39 M5s on the road then just about any other car. I've seen 3 real E39 M5s other than mine on the road in my life. I've seen more Ferraris, Lambos, 4 Bugattis??, Rolls royces, maybachs, porsches, etc.
