Someone on this board has to buy it.

If you people don't, I will.

Because, you know... I need another early 2000's 4-door BMW.

e39 M5 is arguably the best car BMW ever produced. I think it would be a great car for Kevin to move from his E38.

I miss mine a lot.

Maybe with three of them, you'd stand a chance of one of them being in running condition.

Why don't they sell for more? Cost of maintenance I assume.

So far just two seems to be doing the trick there. *knocks on wood*

Am I remembering correctly that they were forced to use recirculating ball steering in the E39 M5? (Due to space issues, maybe?)

Seriously though -
I've not 'wanted' a black car - but then again - I have bought two red cars now and I swore I'd never have done that either.


Maybe we should talk.

If you'd been on the east coast, we'd be talking... Are you sure you want to go through with this, Theo?
