New to site M5 owner

New to your site. Seems nice. will have to spend some time looking around.

Have 2002 E39 M5. Goes like stink. Lot's of fun. My secoond M5. Had '91 previously. Completely different character. 91 was inline 6 and peaky - didn't really start to scream until rpm was around 3000, but then it buzzed to 6000. Trick was to keep it in right gear to be on cam when you needed to step out. Unfortunately daughter totaled it. On wet road, fast curve... you get the picture.

2002 is a big torquey 5L V8. comes on down low in rev band like a lot of high cube V8s. Gobs of fun throughout the range. But it really gets with it from 3500-4000 or so. Going from 3-5000 in each gear will get you highly illegal rather quickly. Giddyup. And don't forget your fuzzbuster.
