New E39 M5 owner here in Maple Grove, got my car off Jim Southwell who I guess some of you may know.

Not on Face book, but hopefully events will be posted here, be interested to take it to BIR next year!

Welcome. I'm in South Minneapolis. As you can see updates here are infrequent. FB has become the place for very localized updates on events. Bigger events usually (sometimes??) get posted here but often after the fact.

There are over 200 Minnesota registered M5Board members, but only 30 or so that are active.

As to BIR next summer, I am planing to go and track the M for the last time. Been there once, very worth it. Start getting your track day stuff ready (if you don't already): helmet, shoulder harness (preferably for both front seats); TD pads, etc. DesertTech (here on the M5Board from Afton) has a set for sale.

Hope we can meet up before spring... my M is stored for the winter... it's a real come down driving my truck now ... oh well spring is coming.

Welcome! Jim is a great guy - glad to hear his car went to another enthusiast.


Let me know if you have any questions on taking the M5 up to BIR. There are a lot of options for driving events up there - I'd personally highly recommend North Star BMW CCA in early June - especially if you don't have a lot of track experience. Feel free to post up any questions or shoot me a PM.


Regards
-Rob
