I will definitely miss the motorway network in the UK, have twice before received a ban in NZ - ive seen the magistrates over here on several occasions as well.. But here is a strange thing, i think the m5 is an easier car to drive slowly than an m3 - it dosent need to be reved as much and the burble from the exhaust is satisfying when short shifting. I hope it will squeeze through emissions(!)

I live in Auckland, so if you do also, let me know what day/time suits & we can see if we can work something out.

Your Nowack is one car that me & other M5 owners will most definitely want to see & experience.

With regards to importation, I may need to be corrected, but I beleive that if you have owned the car for longer than 6 months you won't have to concern yourself with emissions, GST. Best to double check though.

Mmmm... I know im exempt from GST as a private import and being a returning Kiwi, im just not sure about how hard they look at emissions and noise, I might have to ask the Evolve team to turn the cold start off after all(!) Whatever happens im looking forward to having the beast back there and linking up, especially as they are a rare machine downunder.

The devil is always in the detail, so yeah, best to play it safe.

Where I live in Auckland (Greenlane) I have seen an Avus Blue & a Carbon Black M5. I also know of another Avus Blue & Anthracite M5, so that is 5 already with less than 20 altogether in NZ. Obviously none will be anything like your Nowack, so when you do bring it in, there'll be a few of showing showing an interest in this unique M5.

I still cant get over there being less than 20! I mean they are not exactly common over here but you still see a few. Seems like greenlane is NZ m5 central!

Yep, not many at all, which makes it that much more special. Although I have seen 2 around Greenlane, I do get around Auckland a bit, but I know there are more, hence the original request for other interested M5 owners to get together, chin wag, inspect each other beasts, identify changes/improvements etc that have been done, by whom, for how much, advantages/disadvantages, maybe even ask for first option on future buying etc. Good opportunity to further extend each others networks too.
