Thanks! Yeah, the e39 M5 is a fantastic car, but I am not sure I would want that as a DD, either. Perhaps a 2003 530i and just get the m-sport body kit. Great gas mileage, bulletproof motor, great handling. Oh, yeah!

Indeed, me too. Driving an all stock cashmere silver car makes me feel like grandpa.

I might opt out of the V8 and just get a trusty 525i E39 (Touring if possible). Don't think I have a need for 2 V8s. I have to say, your pics show just how good the E39 still looks.

Also, I've always had a thing for E38s too. They can be had for so cheap nowadays that I really considered getting one as a DD. But the reliability and complexity scared me away, so I ended up with a 4Runner
Sure, the e39 M5 is one of the greatest cars ever made! The touring e39s are great, but seemingly impossible to find a decent one with manual transmission. Best of luck!
