I'm in the final stages of buying an e39 m5 and I'm in the west village. Do you get your cars worked on at BMW or at an independent shop ?


I will actually be getting work done by an Indy recommended on here by the name of George from M-chanics. Will be getting decat headers and rod bearings done for prevantative maintenance in a week or
2.

I think what would be a fun event is to figure out a meeting place at some empty parking lot, get together around 10am or so, then pick a restaurant that is perhaps 30-60 miles or so away driven via twisty roads (trying to avoid straight stretches on major highways), drive there, have lunch, and call it a day. If only 3-5 people show up I think that would be a fun event. Anyone interested in something like that?

I would definitely be. Just looking for people to talk cars with and ride! It's always a good thing to network with people with the same interests.

Awesome that we have some interest. I was just browsing around for potential routes and found this site discussion:
Great roads in NY to enjoy driving your Ferrari | Ferrari Chat

Perhaps to start with something simple, I like the route from Kensico lake, 22N then 35 to Ridgefield, grab some fancy hot dogs, and then take 35 to Rt 7, and then take 7 back down. I've created a google map (link below, I don't know how to make a shorter link). Let me know if anyone is up for this route? I am not available this weekend, but perhaps next Sunday (Oct 1st) or the following weekend would work for me.

Also, as a starting point for this route I was thinking that the North White Plains library may be a good place. On google maps looks like they have a nice parking lot. I doubt they would care if a few guys meet up in their parking lot for half hour on Saturday or Sunday morning. They open at 10am on Saturday and noon on Sunday, and we will be gone by then anyhow. Just an idea.

Anyone in the NYC area have a well sorted e39 M5 that they can educate me with? Im looking to buy, looking for a stock-ish example to use as a bench mark.

@;

What you looking to know?
I've owned an e39 528i a while back. I'm used to the interior and body work to look for. But for e39 m5 I wanted to see how a well kept one should ride and feel before I purchased it. A Ppi won't capture the nuance of the car.
