Finally finally !!! :happybirt As some of you may remember my much modified 99 Alpine White 540 6 speed car (dual TUBI exhaust etc) was totaled by a 19yr old kid that PLOWED me unabated at 50mph while I sat like a good boy waiting for a retired guy and his trusty dog to cross the street in the crosswalk block from home ... TUBI on the driver's side is TOAST :(

SO TO MAKE A long story short I was PISSED at the time!! but my sweetheart of a wife quietly said "don't worry honey you'll get a better one " "it may take some time but you'll be better off" well today 3 weeks later her prophecy came true ...

I just picked up a 2003 one owner california car with 75K miles looks like it has almost never been sat in except MAYBE the drivers seat !
Alpine White tan int PERFECT !!

pix soon too dark now

really is a DIFFERENT car that the 540 6speed
finally own an M5 !! :goldcup:

My brother and I were just talking about this color combo and how nice it would be to find, wasnt sure if it existed. He lives in San Jose too. Where did you find it? I was looking in his area for one to drive home to Chicago. I just picked up a 02 BlueMetallic/Caramel last tuesday in Denver. Flew in and drove it back. Congrats on your purchase.

Great car man. Beautiful color combination!!

Unfortunate about the fate of your 540. Also was a beautiful car but, like you say, hard to complain when you're upgraded to an M5!

The AW with that interior looks as nice as any combo for the M5. The interior looks brand new. Congrats on your new M5, looks like Santa came early this year.

Looks great!

Interior looks very very clean. Spend $100 on new floor mats and it will look brand spankin new! First thing I do whenever I buy a used car.
