Wife came home and said he pulled up in a black one without plates. She said it looks sportier than my car--pang of jealousy of course. However, given the way I drive, I think my sedate white M5 has saved my butt numerous times. I think the evil serious look of a black E39 would get me thrown in jail.

He also has a Porsche, 993 I think. I will have to see if he has kept his Porsche and, if so, how often he drives that vs. the M5.

Well ain't that interesting - our Exec VP has a 993TT (i've driven it) and has an M5 on order - a green one. Ah, what a dilemma - which car to drive today?

BTW - what company does your wife work for?

Hey, this must be catching. Our CEO (major regional bank) also has an M5. Among his stable of other cars.

Hmmmm... very interesting ....

Actually, he might be the President. Either way he is one of the big Kahunas. The other one just bought an S500.

Sanmina Corporation.

I guess when all the 30 something guys are buying C5's it is not out of line for the CEO to drive a couple hundred thousand dollars worth of car. It is all relative and I would bet the Porsche TT and M5 are less of a financial strain for these guys than the C5 is for the guy making $75k a year (of course they use stock to buy them).

Ya these guys arent the leaders in there company for nothing. Look at what they invest in the car being the 2nd biggest investment in a normal persons life, these guys get M5 not a bad choose.

I do not think these guys look at cars as investments. Believe me, $80k is chump change.
