Hey all, just joined. Figured I'd post up my car, let me know what you think :D

It's an '01 M5, Titanium Silver with Imola Red/Black interior. I've had it for almost three years now, and I've put about 40,000 miles on her. She sits currently at around 104,000 miles.

Mods are...

Exhaust
Eisenmann Sport cans
Supersprint headers
Supersprint X-pipe

Suspension/brakes/handling:
BC Racing coilovers
Dinan adjustable rear swaybar
Stoptech ST-40 front bbk (355x32 mm 2 piece drilled rotors, 4 pot calipers from a Saleen :blink:)
9.5" wide OEM rear wheels all around with 275mm wide Dunlop Direzza Star-Specs

Engine/Driveline:
Cosmo Racing CAI, filters mounted behind fog light openings
Powerchip tune
Rogue Engineering V12 conversion clutch
JB racing light weight flywheel
Rogue Eng Short-shift kit

As far as cosmetic changes, all I've done was black out the kidney grilles, tint the windows, black out the lower rear bumper piece, black M5 trunk badge, install clear corner headlights, and of course its lowered.

PIC TIEM!!!

E39 M5, 'nuff said.

Great car, I'm glad to see you've modded it appropriately and drive it year round :D

Don't ask me why (I have no idea) but I have pics of what I'm pretty sure is this very car:

E39 M5. BMW at it's absolute best? Probably. That's a one nice car with tasty mods! :)

Nice car. I've always liked the E39 M5. I approve of most of the mods also, but the back looks like the suspension's collapsed. :lol:
I think this particular car has a perfect stance from the factory.

Nice car! When I am done with my E60 I am very tempted to try and find a well cared for E39.

Relatively tasteful mods yes, although I'm (generally) not too fond of the lowered suspension. But that's a question of personal taste of course, and I'm a little weird.

The car itself, being an E39 M5, is just...well...massive thumbs up!

Like everyone else is saying, E39's are pure win. And that one is exceptionally clean. Nice ride, man.

That is exceptional amounts of win right there. Well done to you Sir!

I will have a E39 at some point in my life. Its a given, best car BMW made hands down. Alex Roy glamourised this car for me and now its an eternal picture in my mind. I must buy one.

Excellent car, best BMW ever made IMHO. I'm hoping to pick one up one day, although the reliability woes have been scaring me off a bit. How's the reliability been for you?
