Red Face Hello! New owner here...

Hello, new owner here. Not new to the board, have been daily-driving my E34 M5 for the last 6 years almost now, but the itch struck and I just acquired the item shown last week... It's a 2006, with 109k, and has had the bigger ticket items already done (rod bearings, alternator, one TB actuator, oil cooler) by the PO, who happens to own an import repair shop of some repute, so I can be confident in the work. first impressions: It's not slow
I don't have much to add, hopefully can in the future. (The E34 is potentially for sale, BTW)
