Houston spot

Here's one I spotted parked next to me in the Regency parking garage on the 11th floor.

. Hmmm...damn photo insert link is not working.

Here's the flickr link instead:

Anyone here? It's a 2001+ Lmb with caramel interior. You can see my silver beast next to it.

Carbon black E39 M5, caramel interior, you were traveling north bound on college pt blvd around 5:45pm just before Roosevelt, I was heading south. I was going to honk as you got closer, but noticed you were engaged in an intense conversation with the girl in your car.

I'm like that but with Porsches. 997? 996? GT2? All look the same to me. The only ones I can recognize are the Boxter, Cayman, and Carrera (well and the 2 abominations which I shall not mention).

"I look at it like this. Owning an M5 is kind of like dating a slamming hot big-t...ed blonde, who is a pain in the *****, drains your cash, but screws like there's no tomorrow. Owning a Honda Civic or the like, is akin to dating a girl who is fat, ugly, smells a bit where she shouldn't, is a cheap date and doesn't screw at all (you don't mind). So yeah, I'll take the blonde." (Courtsey of Jetpilot718)
