Hi All,

I just wanted to introduce myself and share a couple of photos of my car. My name is Rich and I have a 2008 e60 6-speed with Interlagos blue paint, and Silverstone II leather with brushed aluminium trim. I've always wanted an M5 ever since i first saw one in 2006... Finding a quality car was not easy and I plan on keeping it stock with the miles low for a long time. I'm currently at 46K miles... Photos:




So there she is...

Yeah, I know... I knew I had to have IB, but I looked at many and most had black leather. The white just looked perfect with the blue paint. Plus theres no faux wood trim.

The 6Mt was a huge bonus as I didnt really want an SMG. I'm very glad I didnt get an SMG after reading about their problems.

Looks nice and clean. At least it comes with a proper gearbox, so no SMG maintenance there.

Congrats! It's well documented that IB is the fastest color of m5s!

Welcome to the No RCOD Club! Any mods planned for your new Beast?

What a great find with super low mileage. I also have a 6sp and love every second of it. I give you 3 months before the mod bug bites you. I'll give you a heads up now - if you want to save money, do not ever visit this forum again. The members on here will give you ideas to do spacers, springs, and before you know it you're getting wheels, lip, blah blah blah. I told myself I'd leave my car stock when I bought it but that lasted 2 months LOL.

Welcome nonetheless.

No doubt. First thing one needs to do is adjust the damn wheel gap w/a spring swap!

Ha, I've been keeping an eye out for exhausts for the car. I'm pretty sure thats all I'll do for now.

So far on Craigslist I've passed on an RPI, and a Corsa... I think I'm going to pick up a Tubi.

The mod bug is unforgiving! I have had my car for a little over two months and have fought this battle on a daily basis and lost.

I personally think the Tubi sounds amazing, here is a short clip of my car: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YgWJtLke54k

And congrats on the purchase! That is absolutely my favorite color combo.

Is there more than one model? The exhaust was already on the car so I'm not sure, I was just told it was Tubi. If I look on their website it only shows one available.
Yeah, they have two different models one is the regular and the other is the Rumore. The Rumore is the louder one of the two.

Congrats!! Great color combo, and 6MT on top of that. I have Space Gray with Silverstone and aluminum trim and I honestly get more comments on how good the interior looks than anything else.
