There are a couple of M5's around. I went to last months cars and coffee, but if you don't get there early you don't get to park inside. So the M5 sat in the spectator parking. Oh well. I think the organizers need to get a bit picky with who they let in, but that's probably just me. Maybe tomorrow there will be more rare and unique cars out there. Last month was pretty vanilla compared to some of the days last year.

I don't know if this post is dead or not, but I just picked up an E39 M5 and joined on here a couple days ago. I'm from the Anoka area. Would love to go on some cruises maybe next summer since it's getting a bit chilly out now.

Lets get it going again

I also have a 2001 e39 M5 (15k miles)...perfect condition and live in Plymouth, MN. Would love to meet other e39 owners in the area for coffee or a drink...compare stories and ideas.

I picked my e39 M5 up a couple weeks ago. I'd still be up for a meeting before winter strikes - I'm in Plymouth also.

Great so would I. I put mine to bed November 1st. plan on taking it out for its 15,000 mile inspection the end of March and then a detailing. The beasts are getting restless. Maybe in early April we can schedule a meeting of all Mpls-St.Paul owners some Saturday morning.

Too bad your beasts are in storage for the winter - it would be sort of fun to have a subzero meet. I get to drive mine all winter!

I am up for a sub-zero meet. M5 is a MN daily driver for me.

I am kind of bummed the cars and coffee doesnt go through the winter months.

I haven't had it on a dyno in my ownership but once I get a few small issues sorted I'm going to get it tested. It is a few suspension and driveline bits (flywheel and diff) away from an S2, which Dinan lists at 470hp. According to my butt dyno it feels close, and it is definitely quick
