I'm complaining, bring it over to my place, I think I need to evaluate its quickness.

Nice wheels, congrats!

I actually bought it used.....lo mile (18K)......in almost mint shape......got a pretty good deal from private party with no taxes to pay!........so I paid less than a new loaded M3 coupe would cost.

I forgot what power was like driving my 323 around.....which I regularly shifted at 4-5K.......shifting an M5 at that range above 1st gear and you are breaking the law big time!........oh what fun!

No ones responding since current and future M3' owners are sobbing right now Thats great! Was the owner "good" to the car? Nice wheels! I'm picking one up next week! (I can dream, can't I?)

Owner was good with the car........interior is flawless......the exterior's only flaw is the black plastic under front right of car which looks like it hit a parking block.......but perfect otherwise......baby does need new shoes soon though.....

Whether they say it or not ALL M5 owners have driven the car hard at times.......the car which was placed into service in 04/00 is under full maintenance warranty for another 17K miles (or 04/03) and another 31K for the basic warranty (or 04/04).......I will put about 18K a year on it......so I have a lot of time to get anything fixed........

Big thing was I was not going to pay all the taxes due if I bought new or from a dealer (not an afford issue but a mental issue).....new M5's out the door cost about $82K......so I 'saved' over $20K on this one.....

Get one!

Please refer to the BMW film with Madonna in it for proper street driving techniques. Ensure rubber side remains downward!
