Hey everyone, glad to be a part of M5board. I wanted to share my new M5 with you guys. It’s a 2007 Interlagos Blue 6 speed beast, with Silverstone II interior. 1 of 105 made for the North American Market. I’m not new to BMW or to M cars at all. Also in the garage sits a 2010 M3 DCT, Jerez Black over NovilloSchwarz Leather. Happy to be a part of the board!

Congrats! IB is the fastest color!

I think there are only 104 IB 6MTs remaining, as one IB 6mt ended up on copart a couple years back.

Any mods planned?

Hey Fiftytwoeighty! Thanks man I love the color. I appreciate the response as I’ve seen you on other posts and you seem to be the king of M5board haha. It’d be interesting to see how many are left as they are a dying breed. I think the only mods for now is to get a zhp shift knob, and a muffler delete. Nothing big just keeping it simple

Congrats on the purchase... Interior needs some love. Good choice on getting a new knob. Maybe a short shifter too? Im one of 105* as well.

Thanks! Yes I will definitely baby her as I do all of them haha. Just a little bit of cracking leather here and there but it will be replaced. I think I’ll stick with the zhp knob for now because it’s a lot shorter than the oem shifter. If I still want it shorter I’ll get the short shifter kit.

Forgot to add this to my other quote but you’ve got an ILB? That’s awesome. We should look into rounding them all up haha. Do you mind if you could add some pictures?

Pics of your e21. I had a '79 320is, with factory Recaros, 4speed, back in 1986. I miss my vertical radio!

Illuminated f10 knob w/OEM z3 1.9L SSK attached. The f10 knob is a hair lighter than the zhp. I had the zhp in my e28 m5 and e39 m5.

There used to be an "Unofficial IB picture thread" somewhere in on the board -- it's been so long.

Cool thanks! I’ll look into it and decide on which one to get! Was that picture of your M5 Fiftytwoeighty?

I hate you and your IB M5 and the 6MT. I hate all IB M5s and the 6MT even more so. (joking)


Congratulations! And enjoy in good health. As Woody has already mentioned IB is the fastest color on the M5. :cheers:

He most definitely is :goldcup:

If there is 1 mod that you must do, it is the shorter drive ratios. At least 3.91. :cheers:
Check Woody's siggy for inspiration.

welcome - once you've tried a V10 - everything else is a bit bland.... IB is a fantastic colour.

What's that in your exhaust pipes? Looks like concrete....
