If you find this post unsatisfactory, please add me to your Ignore List so you will not be disappointed again in the future.

Lets kill a few birds with one stone here. I'll trade you my M5 for your 540i. You can then get rid of your sig, as you will finally own an M5. I'll then have a domestic car. Done/done! But seriously at the price they were charging, I could blow the engine and buy a used one from Clemster.

No way. First off I can't imagine being able to afford an M5 Second, your timing chain guides are shot and mine is perfect:



Thirdly, my car is not a domestic car, it is a fine German automobile

Lastly, I would still need the disclaimer
