I cant wait to hear about it Abulla. I'm glad you are still posting here, as you have pushed the limit of an E39. I hope to hear about your beast and all the kills when you get the baby back! Long live the E39 bud!
Eric the Writer here... Abdulla-Glad to see you're still posting on here. I'm very interested in your impressions after you meet Bill and climb behind the wheel of your (basically) new car! BTW-You can feel free to send me nice gift (like a Lamborghini, or better yet, one of Bill's supercharged systems for my Mustang GT!) if you want, but I suspect you're going to be too **** busy driving non-stop to do any shopping! That stereo actually made me LIKE that music you gave to Bill in order to test the stere (Bahrainian techno/dance/pop). Seriously folks, that stereo ROCKS! I don't know why the editor didn't include the photos of the glowing trunk, but I'll post a few later on today as an "article supplement" if anyone wants to see it. Perhaps I should wait until Abdulla's received it?
Guys, this truly is one amazing machine. I've just been to Bimmerfest in Santa Barbara and this car would absolutely STOMP anything at that show. Other kits (AA, Dinan, etc) are nice, but nothing shows this level of forethought or care, and that's saying something because there's a bunch of MONSTER cars in California!
Look for the Blue M5 to make an appearance in Bimmer soon (no word on publication date yet, but I'll keep everyone posted).
I will have to pick that issue up, however after seeing Robs I feel confident that your machine is truly awesome, and that sound system must be in league all of its own. I look forward to some more videos, I think you were the one who was drifting around all those street corners in Bahrain, in a video a year ago or so, cant remember for sure, but congrats and keep us posted, Josh
The wait must be agonizing! Hope you still have nails, haven't chewed them down to chomps... Can anybody scan it? Would like to see it too and looking forward to Abdullah's first impressions and vids ofcourse :haha:
He will be the new king on the road! kinggf Any news on when the uberbeast is arriving?
Congrats Abdullah! Glad to see you are still active on here after the last incident. Please post impressions of the Beast when you get a chance. This has been a long time coming for you, your paitence is about to pay off!! Thanks for the heads up about the magazine, I will go try to pick one up today.
Re: BMW car puts the Black M5 on its cover/posting article
On posting copies of this article... Please don't. I'm sure that BMW Car would be less likely to continue covering these wonderful cars if they aren't receiving a benefit from it (i.e. magazine sales/subscriptions from the U.S.). I hope everyone understands my position, whether they agree with me or not, and will respect that this is copyrighted work. I, as muchor more than anyone, would love to post this EVERYWHERE!
Barnes and Nobles, Borders, and quite a few independant bookstores/magazine stores carry Unity Media titles (BMW Car, Performance BMW, Banzai, Performance VW, just to name the big ones in the US). They are also directly available from Unity Media via subscription or individual/back issue purchase. I believe copies of the first article on Brian Bloch's M5 and Bill's Z8 are still available!
BTW-The May 2005 (current issue) of Performance BMW also features my work on the cover; Craig Lieberman's wild wide-body M3! If you're searching for inspiration as to what CAN be done to an E46 M3, this is a good issue to pick up.
I should also note that I do NOT receive any further money for magazine sales or subscriptions, just in case someone feels this is a "sales ad".
