Wow you're dense.

God spoke to me last night...he told me that if he'd drive the M5 if he came down to earth. For this reason, I have decided to stick to the mighty M5!

I hope that god gives me the patience to find a good example. It's going to be difficult.

Well it may be personal preference but I believe the greater majority of people would agree that the S62 will always produce a sweeter exhaust note no matter what mods are done...maybe time for a poll?

The one's in toronto are a 2000 model year and the 2002 LMB had a major accedent. I'm not going to gamble...i'm going to be patient for a good example which will make it more diffucult. The wood trim is definiately on the list when I get the M5. Thinking a CF wrap would be the way to go.

The wife has her own 540i (yes i have two). "Her's" is a 2002 M pack AUTO. Soo she doesn't care and I had made a deal before I put on the wring. We use this one during the winter while I keep the other in the garage. So the M5 will be sleeping during the cold months. That's why I didn't care much about maintinance costs.

PLEASE...if any one comes across a good example PLEASE let me know.

Your wife drives an auto? Mine has her own e34 M5 summer car and e90 6 speed to get to work!

You should contact Will Zaraska and see if he can find you a nice E39 M5 in the USA.

It really varies from car to car. My father's M5 only has around 80,000 km and after a few laps on the track it'll start slipping when power shifting. It also get's worse as you start adding power mods to it. Yeah the stock clutch is 'adequate' but the factor of safety on it really is too small.

M5 - $169.50

6 spark plugs vs 8
1 HFM vs 2 (which is a common problem on M5 as far as I know)
5.5l of oil vs 6.5l
13.8l/100km vs 15.7 (average)

There were 9,992 M5 sold in North America and 43,779 M3s (including convertibles). So I doubt that M5 parts are more common.
