Sad request for support for this boy... :(

losing my son please help - ScoobyNet

Gents, sad story, not necessarily M5-specific, but should be publicsied nontheless. Have a read of the thread above and show your support in any way you can.

2001 E39 M5 : Silverstone Blue, 19" Breyton Spirits (horribly rashed...Genuine BBS LM's to go on), Philips Silverline Indicator Bulbs, Intravee II and Alpine KCA-420i (in a box in the house) and 160GB iPod Classic , Evolve headers and race cats to go on, otherwise standard at the mo...

"I look at it like this. Owning an M5 is kind of like dating a slamming hot big-t...ed blonde, who is a pain in the *****, drains your cash, but screws like there's no tomorrow. Owning a Honda Civic or the like, is akin to dating a girl who is fat, ugly, smells a bit where she shouldn't, is a cheap date and doesn't screw at all (you don't mind). So yeah, I'll take the blonde." (Courtsey of Jetpilot718)

I'll be going, but not in my 5, still in storage, but determined to go to lend my support. Can't imagine what the family is going through. It would seem that this event has stirred up a lot of support, it will never cease to amaze me just how the petrolhead community pulls together for things like this.

I'll be there with mine. What a really sad story, I simply cannot imagine being told my daughter had four weeks to live.


M5 (i) - Le Mans Blue, 218,000 brilliant miles before rust and head gasket failure killed it.
M5 (ii) - Carbon Black, 140,000 miles and counting.
