M5 in Greenlane

I have a Silverstone Blue M5 & pass through that way often, but cannot recall being there at that time (Waitangi Day?). If it was the Avus Blue M5, that comes from out further west.

So, I take it that you have your Nowack prepped M5 back in NZ?

The n500 is still on British plates - I'm taking it to VINZ this week. I did drive it round the block after I got home though

Yeah the car I saw was probably avus blue but I get confused by all the BMW blues.. It looked really good though, just like an m5 does! I'm kind of glad mines non descript green, hopefully it will attract less attention if I drive with feeling.

Silverstone Blue is quite a discrete light blueish grey colour & I like it that way. What a Q car is all about.

Was asked if I had a Personalised Plate. No way. I don't want to make is easy for people to remember my plate as I am blasting by!!

When you car is certified, I would thrilled to go for a ride.

I saw Warp 10 just beside victoria park at about five this afternoon, needs a wash!

I had to get LVVC for the adjustable suspension, what a pita! Worst of all it means about ten more days till its registered...

Evolve tuned Nowack n500.

Great to see M5's being out & about - I like my lighter colour as it hides the dirt well.

10 days before Nowack hits the roads (legally) - it is gonna be worth it, I am sure!!

Hi Kiwi M5, In the process of applying for a Special Interest Vehicle permit with NZTA to import an E39 M5, I had help from BMWNZ to verify the number of new cars sold in NZ. Their registration data showed for 2000 11, 2001 6, 2002 2, and 2003 3 cars. They had no data for 1999.
We have meet, I'm the guy that admired your car and talked to you in KeriKeri just after Christmas.
I hope this info is of interest to you.
Dave

Dave, sounds like an interesting process.. Where will the car come from, have you found an example yet? Let me know if your still looking at anything in the UK. Nick.

Evolve tuned Nowack n500.

Giidday Dave, glad to 'meet' you again. A small world again esp. for us M5 fans. Mine was the very first M5 in NZ...we are a rare breed!!

BTW, why go through the import process given the few available of late.

Nick, yeah it has been interesting, it took me about 2 months to prepare an application for the S I V permit from NZTA. My timing was good in that it was right at the beginning of a new year for permit allocation.
The car I intend importing will come from the UK. I am negotiating with a seller at present. I have paid for a PPI and just getting agreement on method of payment. If it happens I will be sure to put up photos for scrutiny. Dave
