Thank you.
Just went through your thread on the European Delivery experience. Looks awesome. I love the color combo on the new ride. Don't tell me your M5 has the Carmel interior...

That's quite a story behind the Benz and it has such a classic look as well. Great find!

Welcome to the M5 group. Hope I get a chance to run across you while you are out and about in any of your great vehicles!


My story about having E39 540s and then my M5 are similar, except I would get one, part with it, want one, get one, part with it, etc, etc, etc. I do not see ever getting rid of my M5 until I can no longer drive it well. Like you, I am a raging E39 fan.

Thanks, Dave. Hopefully, we'll cross paths on the road this summer. For the number of M5's that show up at M5 day and the like, there doesn't seem to be too many folks active online from the south sound area.

Wife asked if Iíd take her out for breakfast this morning so I got her to agree to ride around with me while I take a few photos since I was finally able to polish out the M5.
In owning it a week in total now, and being traveling for three business days earlier in the week, Iíve put just under 1000 miles on it and just rolled it over 87,000 miles last night. I absolutely love driving the car. Itís definitely different than my 540 was, I now see why everyone talks so much crap about the 540i, although, thatís a hell of a car too.
Now for M5 Pics:
