(no mother in law jokes needed, lol)

We just bought an E39. Took it home yesterday. It's a '03 M5. Found it locally from an ad on one of the forums. I've been looking for an '07 or '08 530 or 535 but once I drove the M, it was over. Last year E39 body, almost fully loaded, fast and fun, not abused, great price and the color is perfect..... Carbon Black. To boot, the steep 4 year depreciation is gone and the hit won't be bad at all when were done driving the M5. Win-Win.
