When you like to "blow the carbon out" every time you drive it.
When the DSC is off more than its on.
When you open the hood everytime you pull into the garage to let the heat out so the plastic won't disintegrate.
When you park at the far end of the lot to avoid door dings.
You open the window a crack when you go thru a tunnel so you can hear that aftermarket muffler.
When you turn around to look at your pride and joy as you are walking away from it.
When you spend 12 hours working on your friends E39 because yours isn't broken, and you need an excuse to use all of your tools and drink beer with him.
When you carry the following parts in the spare tire well.
(haven't had to use them, but you never know when you'll stumble across a broken down E39)
A code reader and tools
Every hose in the cooling system
Dual temp sensor
Expansion tank and cap
And when you go on a long trip you take a few more parts, just in case
Water cooled alternator
Power steering pump
