whats up fellas... id like to tell all of you that this board has been very very helpful in my search and decission to purchase an M5... i put a deposit on an 03 carbon black/red & black interiour w/ 38K miles.... hopefully it will be out of PPI soon so i can pick the car up... this car is an absolute monster and can't wait to put my foot down on the go-go pedal, and see how it compares to other cars i have owned (67 chevelle SS 396 on alcohol and 89 lx 5.0 mustang super charged).... you guys have been very helpful, at first when i test drove the car i heard a ticking noise that i thought sounded like a valve noise and thought that the motor was beat to crap... but after doin alittle research i found this board and my mind was finally at ease when i red the vanos noise threads.... i want thank you for the threads on what to look for when purchasing an E39 M5, which was very helpful.... hopefully ill be driving in my M5 soon enough and i can share the experience with u all...:)

thanks diny... hey man where on LI are you from... i just moved to fresh meadows in queens from long island... i used to live in east meadow...
I live way out east (in comparison), close to Southaven park (south of LIEs exit 65).

Not to worry, there's a whole bunch of guys on this board who live way closer to you. I was a bit surprised by the number, to be honest :cheers:

I just picked up an '03 Carbon Black/Caramel/Burl this past Thurs from a private seller and am looking forward to learning from all the other Beast-masters on this Forum. Agree that this Board has been invaluable in terms of info and insights.
