Ok, this is 2nd hand.

My mother has been matching my enthusiasm for my car ever since I got her (the car not my mother) and boasting to her friends. At first this included embarrassingly wrong descriptions. Now I think she has it.

On Sunday a friend of hers who lives in the Royal Crescent, Bath, recounted a story of stopping someone in their car in the street and asking "what the hell is that? it sounds incredible". From everything they explained, it sounded like the two of them had managed to identify an M5 ?? Further more apparently it lives on the Royal Crescent, and has an after market exhaust.

This may be completely wide of the mark, but are you out there ?

P.S. At last something better for my mother to spot than Eddie Stobbart trucks.

Thats me !!!!

I now live on the Royal Crescent and had a nice chat with a Lady who complimented me on my M5's exhaust !!;)

It now has the original 18" M5 alloys in gunmetal grey and is a little dirty :sad1: and deperately needs a clean. But with the Kelleners and engine mods sounds as awesome as ever ;)

I do enjoy starting it up in the morning and bringing the Cresent to life !

My car is as the description below but no longer have the 19's. Simply prefer the handling on 18's. Just about to fit CAI grill, front wheel spacers and black kidneys :p

Anyone visiting Bath is welcome to give me a shout, via a PM

Cool, my first succesful spot :happybirt even if second hand.

Beautiful pics of the BBS wheels even if you have ditched them. Have you still got the RS of your username as shown in your gallery ? I bet that’s a piece of work.

I do recal a comment about early morning noise but I can't remember if the small hint of anoiance was genuine or not :hihi: . I explained it (jumping in to devend a fellow M5'er :blink: ) down to the fact that you didn't have a choice and the exhaust is like that what ever. :p

The RS is due to be back on the road early summer, with somewhere around 370hp ............ It currenty has a 3.8 motor delivering 393hp and is being used for a bit of development by Ninemeister. The trouble is the 3.8 barrels, pistons and rods are a fortune so I'm gonna have the same spec but stay with 3.6litres

This engine makes the M5 sound quiet, tame and pedestrian ! Better keep it away from the Crescent !

I will post some piccies with the grill and Kidney mods :cheers:
