I guess everyone has their own way of looking at it. People that actually work on their own cars and make them 'their own' are different from people that just buy a car that's been modified to a way that they like it.
Don't get me wrong, I would be saying the same thing if I were you. You drive a stock ///M5. You have nothing to loose. You don't put countless hours into your car making modifications to your liking. That's where the difference lies.
As for your friend with the ITR, he wouldn't have gotten that much for it if he were honest with his Insurance company. And what happened to him is a rare case. Getting a payout like that on an old car is not something that happens often. Most of the time you're left holding the bag when it comes to older cars.
