Having killed my last one and had it confirmed that yes, it really is dead and not just resting, I've got a new and improved M5!
Well, not actually new
as such, but... a 2001 Le Mans Blue with blue/black leather, full history, sunroof, factory fitted privacy glass (not sure but...), latest nav, Parrot Bluetooth (works OK and doesn't look *too* crap) and just 72,000 miles. It feels like a new car, and I'm blown away. 150,000 miles to go before I hit the same mileage as the last one. Should keep me in Shell tokens for a couple of years yet
