last night my 540 six speed got whacked kid on his cell phone hit me from behind at 45-50 MPH ... destroyed the rear of the car as well as the roof etc ....

so i will need to replace .... since it was ALMOST an M5 save the motor ... looks like the logical thing now is to actually go find one (M5) to buy to replace it !!

looking for a CLEAN alpine white with grey int

anyone know of one ????


thanks so much
Greg

:eek:oohhh:

That is gnar boots.

I hope you're okay....I imagine you're gonna be feeling that one for a while.


This again reminds me of my greatest anxiety. If some dip sh*t did this to me I really don't know how I would be able to control myself....really sorry to see your car destroyed. Looks like it was a gorgeous 540. At least now you have a reason to up-grade, but still....I would be livid!! :mad:

Wowza! that's really extensive damage there. Were you at rest, or still in motion when collision took place?
Glad you're OK.

Buy it back and part it out, that would be a PERFECT candidate for the E34 540 guys, if you are mechanically incline that is.

Welcome to the M5 search, post pics when you find one!

Wow, sorry to see that. People these days think that driving is secondary to whatever they are doing behind the wheel when they are in the car. I would have been really pissed, but glad your ok.

I do not think that grey is an interior color choice for M5's though, so you may have to do with another color.

You could order an Individual car in any color combination you want, but I dont think its something you could readily order.

Mines close.
