  1. Ha! Yes, managed 364 days longer crash free with this M5.............
  2. You'll be the first to know Dennis!
  3. Every morning I start it up and let it warm up - I can hear it going through it's warm up tune as I do my teeth - makes me grin every time. It's incredibly comfy and the ride is beautifully supple. The seats are gorgeous and mine has the bmw individual Hi-fi which is epic. I always drive it in manual - either paddles or stick - auto really is as bad as they say! Thing is It's not a chore and you're connected to one of the greatest engines ever built! Took me about 6 months to learn to pull off smoothly but now I can town driving is a doddle. Obviously 11-13mpg round town isn't great but you get used to it and I've bought an xc90 on lpg for family work so M5 is down to my commute and playing which is maybe 100-200 miles a month. When you want it to be it is epic though! Go go out regularly with a mate in an f10 M5 and obviously he roasts me for low down grunt, but I've noticed he often has his window down so he can hear the V10! If it's not coming across already - I love it! Was really worried it wasn't going to feel special every day, it hasn't disappointed in the slightest!
  4. Ha! Always wanting more you Dennis! Maybe be when the right wheels turn up but for now it looks pretty much spot on.
  5. Not been around for a while. Had the Touring a year now - love it completely. Not sure we'll ever part! Most work has been preventative maintenance like having the big end bearings done and a few bits tidied up. Also lowered the front on h&r springs and replaced all the chrome with black.
  6. E61 535d to E61 M5. I did it. You should to!
  7. Great! See you on the M40 then
  8. Was planning to sit just off Junction 4 (HighWycombe) and wait for a txt from you lot as you drove past if that's possible? Could someone do that? Number is: 07793009991 im pretty sure I can catch you all up.......
  9. Is there a time cars have to be at Gaydon before if they are in showy bit?
  10. Decision on where and when we all meeting been made yet?
  11. I'll be there anyway but would love to park up with you guys - if not it's the car park for me
  12. I'm guessing it's too late to join this band wagon? Anyone dropping out?
  13. Yes it's Keilder water - lovely place for a picnic! we actually took my dads map with us instead of using satnav/phone/iPad and it was so much more fun and we'd never of found so many amazing roads and places without it. Ive bought myself one on Amazon - no more motorways for me! P.s. Saw 7.5 mpg crawling home from work today!
  14. Corbridge up in Northumberland - lovely roads and scenery
  15. Even the misses got quite into it!
