FINALLY... in da ///CLUB

So its been exactly 1 hour and 45 minutes since becoming an M owner. Just picked up a SUPER clean 2001 titanium silver/black interior with 101k on the meter. Haven't been able to stop smiling since. Work people thinks I'm crazy, but it doesn't matter because the drive to work was quick (for LA traffic)!

Congrats and welcome. You will NEVER be the same, just so you know. There isn't much out there that can make you feel the way an E39 M5 does. You have been warned

Modd it up!

Congrats. Previous owner do anything preventative? Did you do a PPI, and if yes what did it find? Interested at the findings at that mileage.
