I see all these posts. All these opinions. All these comments. There just aren't that many cars. How many of the people that post hear actually own a 2000 M5?

Haven't actually taken delivery yet, but had substantial deposit down since October '99. I got the call this week that it is being built and should be here mid May. Titanium silver, with silverstone sport interior. PDC, fold down seats, sunshades, and the alcantra headliner as well.

How many M5s do you think have been delivered? I'm sure I saw something like 1400 into US alone so how do you stand by your statement of there not being enough owners?

Carbon Black/Black since 1st March 2000

There definitely are a lot of cars out there. Through March 31 1,489 have been delivered to US customers. (worldwide it's a bigger number) Obviously whatever the total number of M5'ers there are this board, it will be a tiny fraction of the total.

Enjoy!

I don't own one but how many posters owned cars 12 months ago when the M5 board was inundated with E39 M5 posts?

Please don't have the attitude that anyone that doesn't own an E39 has no right to post here. Messageboards can become rather dull when that happens. Go check out the TT board at Audiworld. Uggh!

Just Curious. Didn't want to anger anyone. Just really wanted to know. Wow! I live in San Francisco and haven't seen but five or so. Anyone post here?

a lot of people on this board are prospective M5 buyers and want to find out more about the car before they buy one. These messageboards are probably the most informative place to get information that the dealer won't tell you.. =)

Yes, many are future owners also. Put my deposit down Apr. '99 and I pick up the car this Saturday (!)

It's great knowing the "issues" before taking ownership. That way I don't unknowingly get screwed by dealer or BMW NA.

Saw a new one with no plates yet at Coamerica Bank in San Jose, CA yesterday--silver. Is the owner of that car lurking here?
