Recommended Posts

Just read the thread from 2012 to date and wow some real insight into ownership of these amazing cars. Mine is the same colour but looking a tad tired now so going in for a detail soon.

Thanks guys. 


It's nice to have her back. A great day today fiddling in the spring sunshine:




Gave her a thorough checkover, oil change and scrubbed out the arches/cleaned-up the suspension/checked running gear, then 30 mile blast round the block to remind myself how good these M5's are.  Last time I properly used her was 11 months ago to the day. Crazy.




Check out that gleam! Time to put some miles on her again.

It looks brilliant Rob! Well done on bringing it back to an awesome standard. 


Thanks Grieg!


Had a couple of hours to myself today, gave her a wash and replaced the windscreen pipes - they'd become brittel with age and didn't survive when the bonnet came off for respraying.






Just waiting on a replacement grille to come through then she's all back together/complete. :)


The old washer pipework:
