Boy, where do we start! I am reminded of the thread a few weeks ago about people putting M5 emblems on non-M5 cars. But this goes way beyond that - with the four pipe exhaust, the M wheels, etc. Wow! Somebody spent a lot of money to dress up this 6 cylinder to look like a Beast.

The funny thing is that when the guy in his Rice rocket, burns this guy, he will brag that he beat an M5 - not knowing what he actually beat!!

I agree, he did a nice job considering what he is doing. But a 530 with auto is not going to be particularly quick, it won't take much too smoke it.....maybe that will lure some other racers into running a real M5 and then all will be right with the world!!! cherrsagai

Thanks for posting that, I always enjoy seeing the lengths that people will go to just to fool a few (perhaps many?) of the unwary observers out there. I see more "M" hardware on the 3 series cars around Houston that aren't quite the real deal. (Older series, of course).

At the end of the day, all the fooling and posing seem to stop when I rev the engine at a stoplight...a sheepish grin usually comes over the driver's face.

What's with the brakes? They look like dummy crossdrilled, as IIRC you need the holes to go through the entire rotor before they are usefull.
What a tool, as who spends that kind of money on a salvage wanna be M5? Pony up another 10k and you have a real beast with a clear title.
:cheers:
