Just ran across another local E39 M5 a few minutes ago on Creedmoor Rd and I-540; an Imola with Caramel interior, appeared stock outwardly excepting a black kidney grill. I was in the E90 and invisible. This wasn't EaglEye.

Would be curious to know just how many E39 M5's there actually are in our area. I know of 2 others that didn't come to our meet-up... a Sterling Gray '00 model and a Silver '03.

Indeed.
There's another Imola M I've seen on State's Centennial campus driven by a gentleman who appears to work in one of the Venture buildings, but that's the only other red one I've seen around. It never fails that on the rare occasion I see another Beast of any variety I'm in a much more...humble?...car. I just had my four-year anniversary with the E39 earlier this month and the only other time I've met another M5 on the road was at a meet.

E39 M5 Imola/black
---Dinan Stg.3 suspension w/KMAC camber plates; UFM IATS relocation; TMS/Conforti software; 275/18f, 285/18r GY F1 GSD3
NA8 Miata triple black
---summer ride and E-Stock slowmobile; 195/14f&r Dunlop Z1 Star Spec
Former: E46 330Ci/5; E38 740iA Sport; E39 540i/6; E36 M3/4/5; E36 325i/5; E30 325is/5

Can't believe I missed this meet. We could have had one more LMB. I knew we had a bunch of these in Raleigh, but no idea we had this many.

Hey, that happens to me ALL the time. Strange how that works.

Welcome back, and hope to see you at our next gathering. Boy, with the numbers we're starting to see, we may need a larger meeting location or at least a night-before call to Panera to let them know we are bringing a huge crew. Maybe they can offer us a discount or free coffees for bringing in so much business.

Whoa....wait a minute here. I think someone has broken a rule here, but I'm not sure if it's me or you. We can't have two Brians driving two LMB M5 here. That just isn't right. Please tell me your interior is black, at least, or that you've had your car for less than 7 years!

Hey, glad to see some fellow owners in the Raleigh area ... I just picked up a 2000 M5 from Virginia yesterday ... LeMans Blue with Silverstone. 42K miles. When's the next meeting?
