It started out innocently enough. This dealer from the dark side had a stunning redhead available.

Ok so let's check it out....

hmmm... the Beast still looks great after nearly 5 years.




Love the car. Hate the rims :(





Next thing you know, they make me wear this tag like a scarlet letter and send me on my way
:haha:



The wheel issue is solved ...






My BMW experience has been nothing short of wonderful. However, after 6 consecutive BMW's it was time for a change.

To Gustav,. my fellow moderators and board members: this is still the best, most cordial and most informative messageboard on the planet. I still plan to visit and contribute what I can.

Where do you think I got the inspiration for the SL?




It's now official, every M5 in this picture (the Long Island Posse) has gone :byee55amg




The M5 was the best all around car i've ever owned. Who knows, maybe I'll make a round trip. Like Tim W :)


But first Chris Bungle has to go! :grrrr:

Congratulations Max! Sad to see you move on but I am sure you will love the SL55. It is a great vehicle. Your posts and information have been nothing short of excellent and we definately still value your opinion and thoughts on this board even if you did become a traitor;)!!

Well if you had to go to the dark side , that sure was the way to go about it. Your right , the rims are sucky, but oh baby, the lines are so sweet on that car, and the color will make you the talk of the local donut shop.

You only thought you had a cop magnet with the M5.:haha:

Hmmmm ... a friend of mine had a full head of hair before he bought his 55. :7:
I'm still envious of him.
Enjoy the ride - it's a lotta fun.
( I still wish my wife would allow me to buy a two seater - again.)

I am in love with the lines of the current SL's. That car IMO is one of the most beautiful cars out currently. I guess if you had to change away from the beast, that is a worthy switch. Let us know how she runs!
:cheers:

Just when I thought I was almost over my gut wrenching sickness with the Banglized "style" (this is my 26th year of BMW ownership) and could accept the new M5 and along comes this picture. :(

The E39 M5 is a tough act to follow but the SL55 is one sweet ride. Congrats.

Hello Max,
I am sorry to see you go. :byee55amg But I agree that the MB with the new wheels looks great. :biggrin: Congratulations!!!

Like you, I can't stand the new BMWs. :sad1: But I am grateful that some people are buying them (in record numbers I must add), so BMW can stay in business to hopefully get it right the next time. :wroom:
Best Wishes,
Alfred

M GmbH is the BMW M division company. M stands for Motorsport.

Bluemax,

Great work changing the rims! Looks very good indeed! The SL is together with the CLS my favourite Mercedes cars. Remember to pay us a visit here now and then.

Yup, BMW M GmbH is the producer of the M3, M5 and M6 as stated in the German registration papers. On non-M cars it is BMW as manufacturers.
