thanks for the compliments guys!!!
the move from the 540 to an M5 was scary at first because when i got the 540 i thought it was balls out fast, my 540 would slip on 2nd gear with new tires so it was fairly quick; and then i got the M5. HOLY HELL was it a blast to drive, i would notice speeding often just to hear it roar. i was worried on this forum because everyone was complaining about how the maintenance costs would be double for the M5 blah blah, but you know honestly i had more problems in the 540 then i did in the M5 oddly. if you have or have ever driven the 540 you know it holds its ground to most new cars, but the M5 was so much better to drive. I had power in every gear and it probably was the best car ive owned, i honestly regret letting it go. Right now some lucky guy is driving the car in ohio, and if i could save up some money i might just ask to buy it back from that person who i sold it to.
I do LOVE LOVE LOVE my E60 so much but its not the same feeling that i got from the E39, the E39 felt more connected to the road, power in every gear and felt really quick. the E60 is more of a comfortable car that's a high revving monster, this one doesn't feel like its quick at all until you see the HUD saying 130..shh its really comfortable but it feels like your driving on foam, that's the one thing i don't really like but yea. i know im all over the place with comparing those cars but yea..if i had the money i would honestly have kept the e39 M5 and have this high revving monster.

this guys explains it really well, even though he sounds like a douche.. lol

here are the pictures but i really have not taken much pictures of my car since ive been so busy at work..
heres my buddys ISF and another with 335ix
