Any other Houston Texas M5 owners here?

This forum is really interesting, it is the most international car forum I've ever seen.

Houston for 17 years and M5 for 2.5 years. The beast sits in storage most of the time now and is for sale. Moving to another country in two months.

As Steve have said, there are a number of local M5 and ex-M5 owners on the board. We get together every once in awhile. If you are intersted, send Steve your email address so we can put your into our email list.

Welcome aboard!

As a 24 year old performance enthusiast, all I really care about is performance.

The z06 vette is one of the best performing cars ever made. One could do better, but it would cost half a million dollars, and probably be way more finicky =)

So why am I driving an M5? I got a really good deal on one

hopefully the luxury wont spoil me.

Have had two M5"s both with all the usual Dinan upgrades. The curent 2002 works well as a daily driver. My track car is a 2002 Ferrari 360 Challenge race car which works great! If in Houston come to the track .

Nah, just send your Vette to Lingenfelter or MTI....500+ REAR WHEEL hp for much less than a half mil, and you even get a powertrain warranty.
