270 M5's were sold last month bringing the year to date total to 1,891. Including the 700 sold last year brings the 2000 MY total to a whopping 2,591 units. That explains why we're seeing these cars everywhere.

To put that number in perspective MB's 4 year run of E55's is 2,000 cars. Jaguar sold 748 XJR's ytd down from 934 last year.

I predict the pace will slow down in '01 & definitely in '02, as more details of the next 5 series redesign begin to emerge. We may be seeing a repeat of '91 - '93. Lots of cars sold during the first year, and a trickle in years 2 & 3.

Enjoy the ride!
