M5 Intervention

Iíve only had my M5 a month and so far Iíve changed out the grills and bought a V1 radar detector. Window tint will be my next upgrade. My problem is the addiction I have with this car from driving it, to cleaning it, to simply just looking at it every chance I get. My sane side says this is not normal, but my insane side says this is not a normal car. I wipe it down after every use and I keep a cleaning kit in the trunk for emergencies. My hope with this post is to find out Iím not the only one with this addiction and itís not necessary to seek professional help.



If you want attention... KEEP IT CLEAN!

Ease your mind my friend, you are not the only one. I too am obsessed with this machine and I've had mine almost 2 years and it isn't getting any better. I get annoyed when the front wheels have brake dust on them (just drive around the block). I probably dust it off just about every day with a California car duster when I come home from work and its NOT my daily driver, It's safely parked in the garage. I've treated the leather interior with conditioner at least 10 times in 2 years taking care not to rub on the stitching since it frays and you think you are obsessed???After every wash, it gets waxed, not that i really have to wash it much since it never sees rain. I too go in the garage and just walk around it and stare sometimes. My wife calls it my girlfriend. I sometimes take it out on a Sunday morning and just drive. I can't help it. If it's not spotless and not in 100% perfect machanical condition I get annoyed. The V10 roar is intoxicating. The entire car is just incredible. Yours looks just like mine with no front plate. I love that clean look of the front. I still have the stock grilles but was actually thinking of going black like yours. I did tint my windows with a 30% tint and the car looks great. It is an unbelievable car. Every time I go out in it, someone either wants to race me or just stares at it. Nothing else is an M5!!!
