Hello guys. My name is David. I am 42yo and am now a public servant of sorts, but have a history of working in the law and as company director of companies ranging from public relations to waste water treatment.
I do not own an M5 but used to. I do own #62 of the 70 1995 BMW 540i Manual Limited Editions (their full and offical title) sold in Australia to fill the hole created by BMW Australia's failure or inability to import the 3.8 version of the M5 into Australia. They are the Australian equivalent of the Canadian M540i and the US 540i M-Sport and have the full 1995 M5 suspension and kit, other than the body kit, t/stars instead of M-Par's and, of course, the engine. I have also owned #19 of the same 70 cars and have come close to buying a few of the others as well.
Not wishing to dredge up the 3.6 M5 -v- the 540i/6 debate again, but I owned #62 prior to purchasing my M5 and when the wife insisted I sold one, the choice was easy and vindicated recently as part of our Australian annual E34 supercar tour at Winton racetrack when #62 delivered the fastest time of the day ahead of a number of 3.6 M5's.
Speaking of the wife, I am happily married to Sarah and have 3 delightful daughters, aged 6, 3 and 1.
In terms of hobbies, my career keeps me very busy so my BMWs (I also have a 1985 Hartge H23) are my main hobby after family and home renovations, although I do enjoy travelling and snow-skiing when I can do either or both.
A pic is attached of me (in the red top) at the briefing of drivers as part of the 2006 Australian E34 supercar tour.
