I own a 00 jet black m5,built in 12-99. I have read in this board that some owners have had their m5's for 11 months. I didn't realize that they had been around for that long. Where the m5's sold in Europe and other parts of the world way before they made it to the USA

Yes, they were around in Europe about a year before they came out here. They were first produced as model year 99. So the first ones were on the roads late '98. They stopped producing them for a couple of months (Jan Feb '99, I think) for transmission and diff. problems. They've been stedy ever since. I got to drive one in Munich in April '99!

I've had my M5 here in Australia since July 7 last year. The first one's to hit Australia came in around June 1999, and I know the europeans started getting deliveries late in 1998.

Cheers
Andrew
