That car is not Canadian for sure. 100%
More than likely Euro.
Speedo reads 280km/h since it's an M5.

I'm not trying to argue with you, but I own three Bimmers in British Columbia and all three speedo's look like that. Secondly, it isn't British as the steering wheel is on the left. So what other clue is there that it is a European model?

Not much from the interior other than the speedo..but if you guys can provide more pics, the exterior can shed more lights on the origin of this car: bumpers, side markers, headlights, Vin location for US specs..while a rear fog light (red for Germany, rear fog headlight for england..yes FOG HEADLIGHTS) even a plate/a white oval bumper sticker on the back of this car may do the trick...i.e D, YU, I, F,S etc Take A look here:

My instrument cluster is exactly the same as the one you see in that pic. What makes this car a non-Canadian car is the leather dash, steering wheel, and steering column. Canadian cars never saw that option. Closest thing to it is an L7.
