Good times...

Absolutely agree - very good group, interesting mix, some good stories, and lots of good information.

Looking forward to doing it again, before the next "first Saturday" meet.

Bro, it was NOT easy but,...here's the deal, I used to look at them and say this:

"You're NOT going to get ME."

I challenge you...seriously. No more....NOW.

My M5 is up on the lift without wheels or tires or a plenum....I have to finish it up so not sure if I can make it or not. I don't think you guys want a crappy 540 touring in its place! LOL

There is a now annual meet in Columbus. It was a great time last year with about 22 e39 M5s and about 100 cars total. It is called Timmayfest. There is a thread here on the board about it. NC to OH with 6 cars. Sounds like a good idea to me.

Parts took longer to come than thought, then I had an intermediate and more pressing issue with the 540 (door handle fell off) to deal with, plus other stuff. I think I got a little sick because I was feeling a lack of energy and very tired. I was also trying to locate a torque wrench for those stupid plenum bolts, but was told "hand tight" is more than sufficient....so I should finish soon.
