After almost a year of lurking the on forum and searching for the right M5 I finally found what I was looking for.

She's a 2001 Imola Red M5 with black heritage leather. It has a 101,000 miles. It was owned by a very attentive doctor from NC and the care came to me with new breaks, clutch, flywheel, fluids, tires, and a few other odds and ends. She needs a new thermostat and plugs and will need diff seals down the road, but I can handle that.

All I have at the moment are a few shots from the previous owner. See below.

Looking forward to years of enjoyment. :)

Thanks for the warm welcome!

I will definitely try and make it out to a C&C sometime soon. Looks like a good time!

As far as mods go, I think I would like to get the car completely up-to-date on any maintenance needs first.

But off the top of my head, I would like to change out the interior trim, throw in a ZHP knob, DICE ipod integration, and a serious detail with some leather reconditioning.

Awesome. Glad to see another VA member on here too. Imola is one of my favorites. I was very tempted to bid on the Imola car with caramel that sold on ebay a week or two ago. Welcome!! Looking forward to seeing the car progress.

Congrats on such a clean car. I used to think the Imola red was too "loud", but I now think its the best. Silver, grays, and black BMWs are dime a dozen.

The type 65 wheels look perfect!!! Hard to find those wheels with the proper OEM silver chrome. Refinished wheels have a tough time mimicking it.
