    I’m looking at a 2002 M5 in the Upland Ca area. The mechanic I would normally use is over an hour away near my house. I was hoping that I could get a recommendation to good PPI mechanic in or around Upland. The dealer wasn’t keen on me driving 130 miles round trip, which I understand. If...

    Up for sale is my 2003 M5 that I purchased in March 2017 from Seattle. Since then, I've invested a considerable amount of time and funds into restoring the car. Everything I've done is documented in my thread, but I'll summarize the work here as well. Reason for the sale is to focus more on my...

    Last week we brought you the “White Knight” California - https://flic.kr/s/aHskWVwaMu - and so this week its evil twin arrives. We thought we’d give HRE’s new hidden hardware series a go and selected the crowd favorite S201H design for our very own Ferrari. With its hidden assembly bolts, unique...

    With Miami summers lasting damn near year round it’s always a good idea to have a drop top in the stable! In the case of this gleaming Cali T, sophistication and class are the name of the game. Clean white exterior with just the right amount of color from the saddle brown interior is mimicked...

    When HRE released its Vintage Series a few short years ago it created a lot of interesting looks - particularly when customers began to order the wheels for their newer model vehicles. Cars like this Ferrari California T got a nice touch of classic styling to go along with its modern...

  12. Cars For Sale or Wanted
    An M5 is for life. Or so I thought when I purchased my 2003 Sterling Grey M5 back in 2008. The first owner was a collector in Austin TX. The car lived a pampered life in his personal garage of supercars. I shopped around for close to 7 years and looked at more than 35 cars before finding...
