New Member Introduction! (with pics)

Hi there everyone, new to this forum and posting here from San Francisco, CA. Joined the forum because I am currently looking to purchase
an E39 M5 and I figured this board was probably the best source of information and friendly advice for my endeavor. Either way, just chiming
in to say "Hi!"

My current stable includes my 1995 Porsche 911 Carrera (RSR Tribute) and my daily driver Subaru Forester XT SG9. Here are a few pics:







and the daily




Hope to become a valuable asset to the forums and pick up my very own M5 soon!
-Brian

That Porsche is unbelievably gorgeous. I caught myself thinking "I'd trade my M5 for that", but then stopped that thought, but MAN....that thing is gorgeous.

Welcome to the board. Nice 911. How many miles have you owned it, and how has ownership been?

thanks for the kind words, I've had the Porsche for about 3 years now and roughly 22k miles. Ownership has been great! the cars are well-built and have a raw analog feel to them.
