The Mrs and I try to make it to the Franklin CnC at least 1x per year- the next time we are headed out ill drop a note in here if anyone wants to meet us there. We take turns riding in her E46 M3 and my E60.

Cool. We were actually looking to rent in Franklin (despite never being there...although we were in Murphy) but we ran out of time and wound up near Knox. But we are looking to explore there asap. I just can't do The Dragon with the wife. (We did it in Sept...in a rented Buick. Whee!)

Last year after our 2nd run, someone headed up the dragon in a huge RV towing a jeep... it took over an hour before it was clear again hahaha

I had the wife yelling to "slow down!" (I'm in a freaking Buick! It only GOES "slow down"), while 1000 bikes zoomed past me. But at least I can say I "road the Dragon"! (But looking forward to a redo with the beast)

Trying to find navigator to do poker run. If not, I'll at least show up Sat AM. Probably Fri PM at Foothills too.
You can get away without a navigator. There's enough cars that you can usually just follow the herd.

Yeah...but it'd be more fun with a nav. Haven't met enough people yet...and those that know me would rather NOT go over The Dragon with me. ;)

LOL...right? Haven't seen another E-39 *at all*. Actually...not sure I've seen ANY M5s. Loving 100% gas 93 octane $2.59 though.

I just bought mine in March. You sure don't see them around here. I am doing some work Knoxville area (Tazewell)
We did see a white F10 at a nearby Ingles twice.

glad to see another e39 m5 owner in the area!! The Foothills mall show is pretty good and goes all summer. There is always the European Auto Garage Cars and Coffee events, they have a poker urn coming up the first weekend of April on the first and then the Harpers Cars and Coffee on sunday april 30th at West Town Mall. They both have them going all summer usually at least one a month. Hit them up on facebook and you can keep track of them. I do all my work my self, used to work at Grayson and European Auto Garage and a few others in town. I'm only in town on the weekends and would be more than happy to work on it then at my shop in Lenoir City but i highly recommend European Auto Garage and Kadunza. Have fun in Gburg and just hit me up if you need anything. Don'y know if ill have my m5 back together by the poker run but ill have one of my bimmers or my ctsv wagon out there. Hit up the Dragon, foothills pky and the skyway. you can do a loop that hits all three. Its an awesome drive.
I made it late to the last Harpers C&C my car was so dirty that I just parked all the way in the back. Doubt anyone even saw it. Are you going to be at any upcoming events?

There's an F10 in my neighborhood somewhere. Still no E-39's though. *Considering* selling/trading mine for truck+ bike. Will have to do a Dragon run first though.

I stop by Foothills any Friday I've got nothing else going on. Ate at Foothills Mining Co last Friday first. Big $, but awesome food.

Hey all, I just joined the forums and actually beginning the process of looking into purchasing an e39 likely next year. I purchased an Honda S2k a few years back and it took me around a year of educating and looking to find what I wanted. If any of you local owners are going to be at C&C Franklin or live in North Nashville, I'd love to stop by and get the pointers and pit falls of owning an e39 M5. I rented an e60 M5 on Turo a few months back and it was a truly an amazing machine, but the e39 is what I'd prefer. Loved them since they came out in 2000 and now I'd like to join the club!
