    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    I got tired of the small imperfections, small scratches from washing and other small blemishes, such as stone chips and decided to do the same thing I did to previous cars. But they were 5-10 years older and way less expensive than the beast. So I did some polishing of my newly bought M5 and...
