Hello all,

I lurked and made a few comment on this board but I can officially say that I am a true member now. I've been looking for almost 3 months for my '02-'03 M5 and I finally got my '03 White/black yesterday.

I really don't post much but I thought I should at least say hello an it's great to be here!:M5thumbs:

btw, do all M5's come with the M-Audio? If not, how do I know if I have it. My friend's M3 has a speaker button to activate it, does the M5 have one too if it was equipped?

congratulations on the car, you should add yourself to the bay area m5 list thread floating around here.

M audio was an option, there is no activation button like on e46's. To see if you have it, open the trunk and look under the package shelf. If you have M audio, you'll have 2 10" subs sitting there, if not, there will be a nokia speaker box. Additionally, your dealer can print out a report with your vin, to show past service history and the cars options and selling dealer info.

Thanks, I saw the 2 big speakers so I guess that confirms it.

Good Job!

You know it is required that all new members post pictures of their car

You know I thought about it but.... it's so STOCK!!!
I never really understood posting pics of a stock car. Give me until next week. I'll get some photos out. I gotta go to buttonwillow this weekend. (not with the M5, but maybe next time. The NSX is scheduled for this weekend)

And thanks for the welcome guys!

You do realize that they only allow silver M5's in the Bay Area. Just take a look at the current thread regarding the Bay Area M5 club. Silver silver everywhere.

Anyway, congrats. I still like mine as much as the day I bought it.

I saw that list. It took me so long because I couldn't locate a white one in the local area. I was suprised to see 2 whites on that list. never ever saw an white m5 in the bay area.

Congrats and welcome! I think white looks great...very rare on an M5.

Where did you finally find a white one?

OMG Iwebb your car looks exactly the same as mine, oxford green with the lovely tan interior with chamoix insets, is it a 2000 individual?
WillM5AD
It is actually a lowercase L, but anyway. I dont have the chamoix inserts, just regular Caramel interior. Do you have the folding rear seat?

I like the green how about you?

Yes I do have the folding rear seats, its a 2000 individual, all the bits, satnav,tv,uprated hifi etc.
I wasnt sure about the color when I bought it, in fact I didnt care just wanted it bad after lounging around in an 850i for 2 years, didnt know much about the M5 then my son saw it and I took it for a test drive and just had to have it immediately, the color has grown on me I havent seen an M5 in that color before I saw yours. Is your a 2000 model also? Had some problems lately but will be picking her up on Sunday complete with new gearbox etc ?????? .
You may have seen my post "big costs coming up"? http://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=57232

Sweet, sounds awesome.Yes mine is a 2000 model Build date 10/99. I purchased it used in 2003.

The color while subdued is real nice in the sun. I love it more and more each day I drive it.
