Great thread Ray ......I must admit to being amazed at the response , which clearly indicates what a big , happy , M5 loving family we are !

I have therefore decided to reveal a touch more about myself , although I have been discreet enough to hold a little back !

David , 36 years old , likes cuddles and humanity .

Formerly USD $ trader until Nick Leeson put a dampener on things , at which time I resigned and moved into Equities at Bank of America and Deutsche bank amongst others .

Upon the loss of a close friend to cancer , I left investment banking to continue the running of his office cleaning co www.a2zcleaning.co.uk and have been the proprietor for 5 years.

There is a time for work and a time for love . That leaves no other time !

I am married to my beautiful wife , Melissa , with 2 children , Dillon aged 4 years and Yasmin 20 months .

I am very interested in sport , being a keen golfer , angler , motorbike rider and I am also a qualified ABA coach at Sudbury ABC , having boxed for The Fitzroy Lodge and Kingston ABC in my younger years and represented Mugendo ( The Ultimate Way ) Kickboxing Organisation in 5 British Championships nationwide .

My R1 .....

I have been fortunate to appear in BMWCar magazine on two separate occasions in the past year , particularly in relation to the E28 M5s younger sister , the E34 M5 .....having the pleasure of test driving the E61 M5 Touring with 8 other board members at Bruntingthorpe.

Pic of myself ( left ) and member FinalEdition at The Ring last year .

Better a day as a tiger than a lifetime as a sheep !

My R1 .....


This R1 will kill you! How many hp does this have? 165? Deutsche Sec's is very srong in the equities side. I used to be with SocGen here in their Asian operations. Now a rogue trader hit them with a $7.5bn loss! Ouch!

Let's hope that I die whilst making love .....but if not , riding the R1 will do !

Deutsche Bank was a great place to work and I was sorry to leave , although family and friends will always take priority over work !

I was a part of the creation of the European Equities division at Bank of America in 2000 and played left midfield for their football team in the Southern Financial Services District league until 2004 .

One of my favourite deals was with SocGen .......100 million 1 year $s ....booooyah ......I did a lap of the open plan office with my arms in the air ......they were the days Paul .......before the limits and huge discounts !

Still ......cleaning toilets can be fun ........

Better a day as a tiger than a lifetime as a sheep !

Hello everybody!

My name is Martin and I'm 27 years old.
Originally I came from Poland but for the past 3.5 years I live in Bournemouth UK
I'm single (by law) but living with my girlfriend just like a married couple.
Currently I get stuck in a shitty job (especially compared to all yours) but hopefully I will move on soon! (otherwise bye bye my M5 dreams!)
I'm a petrolhead myself and great BMW lover and had quite few of them over the past few years.

e28 520i
e28 528i
Porsche 924 - too slow!
e30 325i
e32 735i - manual
2x ford bangers - don't ask!
2x e34 525i - and a Mazda 323 in between

Since I can only remember I was always only talking about cars and soon as I started to talk I was shouting from my pram: Look grandma a BMW! (probably my first spoken word was BMW, but the first written one was A*S!)
Apart from cars I love dogs (unfortunately my beloved dog passed away a year ago)
Slowly I'm getting myself into photography as well.
I'm technically minded and like to do some tinkering in my car and always try to learn something new. (hopefully I will go somewhere in this direction in the future regarding my work career!)

Time for some pictures:

My beloved Seven and my beloved Girlfriend - she made me to chose!

In Holland on our way to visit the family back home - that e34 was rear ended about six months ago!

My best friend IKA - she loved to wander with me for hours in the forest

And that Ogre is me in my most natural and common mood!

Me an my current "NISSAN"

Me six years ago as a "boy with big boys toy"!

And I though that bigger the car You have the bigger You should be Yourself!
Or maybe I just had to compensate for the weight loose of my car?

Hi guys, my name is Gary, from Belfast in N. Ireland. I'm 25 years old and I'm a professional golfer. Being somewhat lazy I refuse to practise so I rarely play. Do some teaching/coaching at a really good club in Belfast for the past 3 years. This is where I'm an assistant professional www.belvoirparkgolfclub.com

I've been going out with my girlfriend Susan for almost 4 years (although she hasn't spoken to me in 13 days). We make quite the funny couple. I'm over a foot taller than her!

First car I bought was a 1989 325i sports and kinda fell in love with the older styled BMW. Nothing beats a bit of character and personality.

My hobbies include playing football, wee bit of golf, an avid manchester united supporter, tennis and played a bit of american football before I started working Sundays http://www.carrickfergusknights.com/

The team in Charleroi, Belgium for a competition a few years back

Smile Newbie here.

Hi guys. I'm Stephanos. Currently (impatiently) awaiting to pick up my 91 E34 M5. The car is one of only 2 M5s in Cyprus where i'm from (currently live in Newcastle upon Tyne), finished in Calypso Red with black leather/M cloth interior. More details and pictures when I get it in a couple of weeks.
My UK daily transportation is an Audi A4 2.0 Tdi and there is also an 89 E34 520i (bought new) with 70k on the clock which was the first car I learned to drive in!

I'm an A&E physician by day and like to fiddle with audio equipment when at home.

Hi there all what a great thread

I'm Andy, 33 y/o, live in huddersfield, i'm a asbestos surveyor, have a great interest in cars, espescially BMW's, I havn't had much time for anything interesting over the last 3 years as ive been doing a wreck of a house up, (and a wreck of a car too, but thats now turned to a stunner).

I better describe my brother as well whose been posting on this message board for me, his name is James, 30 y/o, hes a computer aided electrical engineer, he too has a huge interest in cars, computers, home cinema and servicing old military grade cathode ray tube projectors.

Ive attached a picture below, im on the left, my bro is on the right.

I am a car nut and my love affair with BM's started with the E24, and they remain my 1st love. Hasn't stopped me owning 2 ///M sport E34's including my M5. A few pics...
