I'm just wondering what the fastest anyone has gone in their M5's. September of 99, I was in germany to watch the European GP and the guy we stayed with had a dark blue (i dont know the color name) M5 with exclusive black leather. Anyway, I think I enjoyed the trips to the Nurbugring, which took about two hours on the Autobahn, than the actual race. I got some awesome pics of the first corner crash there. But anyway, we hit max of 270 kph and for about 20 minutes we did not go below 200 kph. The best was when we had to slow down for a car in front of us, this gave a Volvo turbo wagon a chance to get close, he flashed us his lights, so our responce was a downshift and Auf Weidersen!! We left him so bad.
