Finally picked one up...

After seeing probably the first M5 in the US back at M day in 1998, I picked up an 02 M5 tonight. 23k miles, Charietto Red with Caramel interior. Gotta read the manual to figure out how to work everything but the normal things...felt like early I-drive!

Gotta sell the 95 M3 now...

Well I have had the car for 2.5 weeks and put 150 miles on her. Until I my E36 M3 it won't get much use as i don't want to put 300 miles/week commuting on it. Once the E36 sells then I have another option until we move this summer and my commute will go down to 20 miles/day.
