BMW M5 Australian Registry

I'd like to gather a list of BMW M5s/540s in Australia.

We seem to be a bit all over the place at the moment and I keep seeing the guys in the States finding each other over the general forums and it makes me jealous. haha. If someone lives around the corner from me I'd definitely like to know. I've had some email chats with some of you guys but then more of you pop up. Australia was a tiny market for the M5 and it's hard enough seeing another M5 on the road, let alone finding who owns it.

I'm just asking for some simple details like car year model and what area you live in and we can go from there.

I'll start.

I'm quite frequently in that area. Was it a week day or weekend? My Missus drives the car during the week and I would normally be found prowling around in it on weekends. Here is a current pic.

That's the one! Except there was no camera mounted on the back windscreen. It was a weekday; I was buying a replacement office chair after my old one died ......

Very nice, Sir!
