e39's Spotted / Sighted

Background:
Yes, I know there is a forum for this. I've posted there exactly 5 times since I've been a member: 2007 once, 2008 3x, 2009 once, since then -- I gave up. Responses: 0. I'd hate to calculate Ashok Arora's hit-rate, or the percentage of zero-responses. It's probably safe to say too few eyes go there. Let's see what happens if it's here, posted in one thread.

Suggested format:
[Country/State/City] - [Color] - [Date] - [Time] - [Location/Vehicle details]

Don't forget, there are regional forums you can use, as well.

Ok thanks for the inaugural post here goes
USA New York northbound Hutchinson River Pkwy to be precise. SS E39 Jersey tags and what looked like Tubi exhaust.
Will the board member who owns this beast please stand up?

Around 6:00 pm, I saw carbon black, avus blue? hard to tell since it was an overcast yesterday. I was traveling north on berlin turnpike. That m5 was traveling south.

It was spotted driving near cumberland farms gas station in wethersfield.

Ok there is an M5 that is always parked near CVS in Westport CT I believe you also have a 4.8l x5. I also see a silver M5 coming down weston road I assume you are on your way to work most days. Respond if it's you either one.
