I see from the poll that 156 members have provided info on which car they own.
Is there any way of telling which country they are from.
The reason i ask is that i haven't seen another E34 M5 around and just wonder where they all are.;)

That is the joy of owning the car. Yes in the space of two + years ownership of my M5 I have seen two others on the road, one a wreck while the other was debadged but well cared for.

As for country id I'm not sure... one for dewitt me thinks!

regards

Mine lives in Poole, Dorset and is a debadged, dechromed anthracite 1994 E34 3.8. I've seen a silver E28 and a friend has a silver E39 (2001) and that is all I recall seeing in the last few months. Maybe in summer.

:cheers:

I`ve not seen another on the road in 18 months, but seen one in the main dealer for a service. Scary !!

I've just posted a similar thread on another site today.
Before I bought my car I hadn't seen one in the flesh, within two weeks of picking it up I had seen 3(1grey and 2blue all early E34s) within 5 miles of my home. At that time I thought god these things are as common as muck. It's now been 6 months and my faith has been restored in the cars, I see the greyun daily(a bit of a skip) but apart from that i've not seen anymore

The sticker under the bonnet says my cars is "Brilliant Rot", which using my astonishing translation ability means "Brilliant Red" in English.
I`m not sure what Mugello Red is, anyone have a pic.


Presumably it would be easy to mix them up, I haven`t seen Steves "Paint Code 775 - Matt Battleship Grey" M5 as he brought a friends car down to Bournemouth when I met him. LOL.

London

Im in Chingford, East London. I've seen a green 91 M5 parked nearby in Buckhurst Hill, a grey one in Ilford (off Green Lane), a White one on the A406/A12, a black one on the A12 and a fake silver one in South Woodford.
... and I never got to speak to any of the drivers :(

It was more like someone asking about the amount of M5s still registered in the UK, I was more interested to see if there were any fellow Scots with good taste in cars, but the topic quickly digressed to the price of tyres.

They seem to be getting rare, I sold mine
in mint condition last April (3.8) have a
02 M5 now - compared to E34 its a tourer
as far as fun goes.
The guy wrote it off a week after buying it,
then managed to get his hands on another.
Complete dog by comparison - travelled
up to Rugby to buy it.
If I saw a nice 3.8 I'd be tempted to change back.

Enjoy.

Sorry gents slightly off topic, but, where are the good spots to get spares in the UK. My M5 is euro spec with zero emissions stuff and I like the euro spares better than what we have in the US. Any info is well welcomed.

Steve Mac -- Hiya.

Been so so busy have lierally not had spare time to get on the
board. 23 hours etc like you.

Seriously -- if you do trade up (?) to new style M5 make sure
you hang on to the old one for at least a few weeks before
letting it go.

My 3.8 was a hoot to drive - the new one would be mega if I
had not had the old one as a comparison.
The missus told me to hang on to it, but I let it go due to having to park it in the street.

I have the 740 auto I use for work, and I always used the 3.8
whenever I could - big grin factor.
Just do not get the same feeling with the new one, loads of
toys but no soul.

I have not seen too many nice ones for sale recently either,
and for what you get for them at the moment it is not worth
selling anyway.

2 M5s ? Mmmm - You can always say its an investment for the baby !

Regards.

My black 3.8 can usually be seen drifting sideways
through the roundabouts of south east London & Kent
(correctly indicating as required!)

Or on track harrassing 911's....


On occassion i pass Andys Calypso Red machine sat
quietly on his driveway !

But thats about it !
