Bye M3 you'll be missed :(

Traded it in for the one beside it *wave* No not the cavalier. Found out the hard way that having 3 kids with a 2 door and cramp back seat is not good for the back.

It's a 2006 M5 Silverstone Metallic II/Leder Merino/Schwarz leather, smg all stock except for the Dinan Stage 1 software upgrade that the previous owner put when they replaced the clutch, smg pump last year! BMW Canada and the other bmw dealer good will it since it wasn't on the warranty anymore. The CCC was replaced too! Good thing it went before I took delivery so the dealer replaced that, basically the navigation went blank, 3 days later they called me saying the CCC went and they replaced it.

The day I took delivery I was driving 400 north and the Nav screen starts flickering!! WTF apparently the repair shop forgot to tighten the battery, after tightening that up it's all good.

2 days and 600km's later from port perry to midland, ontario I have to say this thing is a beast and also eats gas like no tomorrow but I love it! I try not to press the M button too much, ohh man its very tempting. Pressing it and having the active seats activated on sport is a pleasure driving on winding roads, there's a lot of them in port perry hehe.

Will take some decent shots soon. Was too busy driving and forgot to even take one picture. *mumble*

Now, If only I can convince the wife to let me get another car as my DD an e39 would be a lovely pair to it.

My wife will kill me if I sold the 8 seater lol. We still need it to haul around the family + in-laws. Plus it's not worth anything IMO might have a few more years before it goes.

Nice! Those S85s are a work of art.

Quack 05-13-2013 05:14 PM

congrats Jeff, so what's in plan for this beast, leave it stock or there will be some modding going on?

also, not sure if they will work but I think my cousin has Dinan mufflers for sale, he took over the lease to Rost's M6, after he returned the car to BMW he reinstalled the stock exhaust & that's where the Dinan set came from, going have to find out if fitment is an issue or not.

Hey Clarence.. plan for now is to keep it stock. I'm hoping I find some time to do driving training at mosport and some auto-x but it's always busy on my end. Would love to have power pulleys and a nice sounding exhaust maybe a eisenmann exhaust later on.

As for the Dinan mufflers for M6, I read that it's not a direct bolt-on and requires alot of modification to get it fitted. M5 has quad muffler setup while the M6 has dual.

BTW, what is Rost driving now?

Rost lives in England, over there he drives a Porsche & a SLS
