They were optional, just not on US cars. My Canadian M5 has them.

Awesome updates! Put a deposit down for Peter to build me a fresh S62. I also bought an 81k mile 6 speed from Adam. Waiting on a quote from Thayer for a fresh M5 diff and then will call ESS to order if I don't hear back from the guy selling the used kit. The car will be a beast! I hope to have it back by Christmas. And what a present to myself it will be!!

I also have another car on the way, arriving this Saturday. But will wait until it arrives to post more. Not a BMW..

Quite the crew you have on the E38. Congrats on the sale of the touring. I'll miss seeing it in the "Touring Thread". Mine has been sitting in a garage for the past year. Ugh!

Those Merc's. They have some incredible cars. I had the opportunity to drive and go to training on lots of them and they are amazing. Even the base 550's of those era's are very powerful. The 6.2L...I love that one. The BiTurbo after it is "better" but that 6.2, yes please!

We had a guy who took a 08/09 C63 and over the course of a couple years turned it into a Black Series. I mean full body, exhaust, suspension, insane brakes...He was getting all this stuff from Germany, as our Parts Department couldn't get it. After we would install stuff, he would then go beat on it! Loved it. I have some photos of it somewhere.

Sub'd. Glad to learn there are such talented board members in the NC area, as I'll be relocating there next year and have been thinking about some upgrades.
