Within ONE block of my condo, there are now FIVE M5's...

- Avus Blue
- Titanium
- Oxford Green
- Carbon Black
- Alpine White

The first three cars are all in the same building! Avus Blue guy has had his car for almost a year.

The Carbon Black parks out on the street...all day...every day (and sometimes overnight)!

The Alpine White is ME and I'm not feeling too special anymore!

To continue...one day I pulled out of my underground and saw a guy & two girls hanging around their Jet Black with Washington plates. They pointed excitedly as I drove away!

Just then, my neighbor with the Titanium turned into the the block and nodded at me!

I looked in my rear-view and saw the Washington guy throw his arms in the air as if to say, "what the hell IS this?!"

You should consider yourself lucky man, in alot of areas here a Ferrari is a common car let alone a BMW M5, the M5s and S8s and E55s etc are considered to be work cars, for everyday, nothing special about them to some owners here.

You can say that, actually it is more the Mediterranean and the Middle East because I tend to go around alot, I cover these regions per year, (that is where my grandfather's company operates), I live mostly in the UAE, but I am often in Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, as for the Mediteranean it is mostly Italy. He ownes alot of real estate in these countries, he is one ot the arab sheiks.

Last week I had an F355 Spyder and an F355 coupe - both silver - parked directly across the street from each other. Totally unrelated owners! I saw the Spyder guy walk out to his car and glance across at the coupe...

Must have been the stock market (before this month!)...

Alpy,
you always have an option of moving to South Bronx
maybe that would make you feel better about the car

Guys,
I don't know what you feel when you see someone is driving an M5, but when i see it, i feel that the person behind the wheel has a discerning taste and i feel kinda proud to be of the same crowd or gang more like

The M5's stealth and low-profile appearance seem to be highly valued attributes, to the extent that one even encounters talk of debadging and de-spoilering M5's on this message board. You've attained the ultimate low-profile situation. You should be pleased!
