Hello everyone,

Well, I am now a proud owner of a 1999 red M5 with red/black interior. It has 80k KM (about 50k miles) and is a LHR European model (I am based in Hong Kong but spend most of my time here in Japan). In reading, it does not seem like BMW introduced the M5 (use version) to the US until 2000. I will get some photos up shortly so you can see some of the minor differences. I have noticed that the placement of my car navigation system in the trunk is different from similar models from the US/Europe. It also seems that the orginal owner selected the 'smoker's package' (lighter and ashtray I guess); how times have changed...

Also, I would like to say thanks in advance - the information the has been posted by a number of you not only made me a smarter buyer but will also help to make me a smarter owner.

Pictures to follow later! (Just added some)

Raymond/Tokyo
