    5soko || Allow me to re-introduce myself || E60 M5

    Well guys, after a long and about 3-5 months of researching, test driving, forum talk and friendly advice, I finally landed on my next platform for the next few years.

    CPO 2009.5 E60 M5.. Fully loaded with every option! Interior of the car is in PERFECT condition. The exterior aswell, has no dents, no major scratches, just the common front bumper,headlight, hood rock chips, overall in awesome condition. As you can see in the pics.
    No car i test drove, researched, even came close to my overall feel and or want for this car! ( C63, E63 NA engine, 550i f10, S4, 750i, M3)

    The heads up display, awesome V10 engine, SMG tranny which i think is amazing!, heating steering wheel and seats, AC seats, moving bolsters when turning, suede roof, leather stiched dash and doors! Just an amazing quality interior, the options and special feel of the car goes on and on. Then the driving experience just took my breath away, the steering feel, suspension, make for an great driving experience. The top end power and S6 SMG BANG shifts is just a spectacular experience, no other car i drove came close to. I just fell in love.

    I've owned a 2007 335i coupe ( tune only) 3 years and then got a 2010 E90 LCI M-sport 335i N54, which was heavily modded, FBO. Bought it new, and at 30k miles, started giving me too many problems, misfires, injectors, fuel pump, it was time to leave this paltform. Was in the 335i game for a lil over 6 years! and two N54's!
    Props to Terry, i was one of his first customers, and he is really the man! Took care of me for all the time i was with the JB4 through all these years, and its been awesome!

    To think my 335i was FBO and i datalogged and spent all the money on mods and making sure she ran right, this M5 is faster in STOCK form! alot faster on pump vs pump. My M5 would have walked my FBO 335i which i tought was fast!

    I am really happy to be in the M world, and now see what its all about!

    Anyways here are some pics: Enjoy.

    Thanks alot man! Yea you will love the M5, SMG is awesome, even in NYC traffic, i had the car a few days and already got the hang of it. the top end power and SMG S6 shifts are a new driving level experience, and ive been in some fast cars! Thing feels more exciting then my cousins Mthis 10 second C63.

    IE is junk. Plus you were likely running an older version.
