I've been looking at e39 M5's for a year or so now on Bring a Trailer, CL, Autotrader and these forums, I RARELY ever see any pop-up locally. One I tried to take a look at last year sold before I could make it over to take for a drive and get a closer look. I also rented an e60 M5 in Minneapolis and it was a truly incredible car, but I'm looking for the simpler (to work on for me) more analog V8 of the e39. I've yet to be able to check one out, haven't seen any locally or at car shows. Would love to get a close-up look if there is a local owner willing to share their insight and enthusiasm. If any are open to meeting up, I'd love to get a closer look and an overview on their ownership experience.
