well yes, what good is a car with a messed up engine.. especially with a lot of tech shit like a 7 series. it's a disaster.

the beauty is.. plp only buy local cars.
you can sell it here but for a similar price as you would in ontario.

It's an M5, the dashboard M and the shifter knob M is also there.

The dashboard is NOT M only the shifter has the stripes on it, which means nothing, it could have easily been changed.

I guess when Clint Eastwood shoots off 15 rounds out of his pistol in an old western, you believed that was some exotic gun? You have to understand that movies do have budgets and stunts are not cheap.

Although, for viewing purposes (without looking at things too closely) we will say it was an M5 giving chase.

Gamite-guess what movie came on F/X tonight? Transporter! I had to watch that after I got off of work and before the NBA Finals. I missed the first 30 minutes and I think that was the chase scene. By the time I started watching it, they blew up his Bimmer.

Buddy are you stupid? M5 badge tells all? so if I go and put an M5 badge on my car, its an M5?


Lets count the ways how its not an M5.


First pic: Here you can clearly see no M5 side skirts, no front bumper, and those are definately not M5 throwing star wheels.

Second pic: Interior shot, notice the arm rests? Those are not M seats, M seats are more square and do not come with arm rests. I seriously doubt they're gonna swap out the interior of an M5.

third pic: The gauges. You can clearly see white gauges here, M5 came with red needles.

Convinced or should I continue?

It wasn't 540, the car was definately 92 or older. It had narrow grill and box mirrors.

I'll add a pretty obscure movie, The Chase with Charlie Sheen. E36 Bright Red 325is, chased by the CHP for like 1.5 hours.

Someone else added this one. This was more like the "OJ" chase. It averaged 50mph all the way to the Mexican border
