Whats it worth then ?
Welcome to the board Dave,First of all i would like to say hello and introduce myself as the much talked about no.13s new owner.
Yes I am that lucky person you won it on ebay,why didn't anyone bid!
Well i'm glad nobody did as iI wouldn't be the new owner!
All i can say is that Dave was a very honourable man for letting such a great car go through with no reserve and not pulling it at the last moment or having the car 'bid up'!
He was a pleasure to deal with and totaly inspired me with confidance on the phone prior to bidding.
Being the fortunate owner of a few exciting porsche's and oher classics and a e34 3.8 M5,i can only say what fun and i can see why they are so popular.I have been using the car the last two days in the rain,say no more.
So all i can say is i was lucky to get such a deal,thanks Dave!
Welcome to the board Dave,
I am glad 13 has gone to someone enthusiastic enough to post on the forum. As the others have said a wealth of info on this board by people alot more knowledgeable than me on the technical aspects of these cars.
Take some photos of 13 and put them up on the picture thread. Best of luck with her, I doubt you will be disappointed.
Congrats to Davehutch on becoming the proud new owner of number 13.
Ive not been on the board long and haven’t been an M5 owner for long either but you only need to read through a few posts to know Davidoli knows his M5’s so it must be a nice car. Im very pleased its gone to a good home.
For the right money I will bid for 146. 298k or not I still think there’s life in the old girl yet.
I did talk to the guy selling it and he seems a good guy. My only worry was that he said a few people were interested in the car but they want to break it. I really hope this doesn’t happen.
If that's a question to me, then he certainly wasn't acting with along with me. To be honest, I never took to his online persona, it's just a question of fairness and transparency. FYI I am known by the same username on just about every BMW forum................
I hope the banned member was acting alone.
I & RaymondW have asked that this matter be closed.
That goes for all parties.
I think this forum rather suffers from under-administration at the moment. Up to a few months the traffic was light but the atmosphere was very friendly, constructive and helpful.Over administration soon becomes censorship and comments such as,
