Hello STAers. The day has finally come when I brought my M5 home. I set a goal 4 years ago to get an M5 by the time I graduated college. It was kind of a frustrating process looking for the right one and then negotiating it at the price I wanted, but after a little while they accepted my offer on this one - the very day I graduated. So the next day I signed the paperwork, and I picked it up today.
It's a 2006 Silver Grey Metallic CPO BMW M5
Black Extended Leather
I think that's the important stuff. Original Sticker was $94k, I have the original sticker and all of its records. The car is absolutely phenomenal. It is pretty fast when you get on it in the right gears. It is taking a little bit of getting used to since it's sooooo much different than my truck. The highest I shift at is like 6k because I am used to my truck being all out at like 5k. There is another 2k to go in this car, it's not even at peak power. The car ****ing hates going slow. It's really hard to stay under like 35mph speed limits in town. There was traffic pretty much the whole way home as well, it was like a caged beast. But basically I am asbolutely thrilled with the car.
Anyway, here are a couple of quick pictures. I wanted to try to go by the beach and get some, but it is raining.
I got the flag plates on it because Rob says cool cars should have unique plates. MA doesn't have anything that good, this was the best I could do.
And safe in the garage.
I do have a couple of things I would like to do, but right now I am waiting for my bank account to recover a little.
