New M5 owner

Hey everyone, glad to be a part of M5board. I wanted to share my new M5 with you guys. Itís a 2007 Interlagos Blue 6 speed beast, with Silverstone II interior. 1 of 105 made for the North American Market. Iím not new to BMW or to M cars at all. Also in the garage sits a 2010 M3 DCT, Jerez Black over NovilloSchwarz Leather. Happy to be a part of the board!

Congrats! IB is the fastest color!

I think there are only 104 IB 6MTs remaining, as one IB 6mt ended up on copart a couple years back.

Any mods planned?

Hey Fiftytwoeighty! Thanks man I love the color. I appreciate the response as Iíve seen you on other posts and you seem to be the king of M5board haha. Itíd be interesting to see how many are left as they are a dying breed. I think the only mods for now is to get a zhp shift knob, and a muffler delete. Nothing big just keeping it simple

Thanks! Yes I will definitely baby her as I do all of them haha. Just a little bit of cracking leather here and there but it will be replaced. I think Iíll stick with the zhp knob for now because itís a lot shorter than the oem shifter. If I still want it shorter Iíll get the short shifter kit.

Pics of your e21. I had a '79 320is, with factory Recaros, 4speed, back in 1986. I miss my vertical radio!

Illuminated f10 knob w/OEM z3 1.9L SSK attached. The f10 knob is a hair lighter than the zhp. I had the zhp in my e28 m5 and e39 m5.

There used to be an "Unofficial IB picture thread" somewhere in on the board -- it's been so long.
