E39 M5 Supersaloon
Added: 31st of January 2014
Bought the car on a whim as I'd sold mine and had money burning a hole in my pocket... Picked it up and filled the tank with V Power fuel... the numbers on the pump just kept on going and going but eventually stopped at £91. It's a monster, 400bhp on tap from the 5.0l V8 and the noise is infectious, so infectious that I had the rear backboxes (4 of) cut off and straight pipes installed instead which made it sound pretty much like Satan's own car! In the short time I owned it I only ever managed a paltry 26mpg on a motorway, cruise on, downhill ! The worst mpg I saw was 8, it may have gone lower but I wasn't looking at the dash at that point! The rear end slides nicely when you want it, and can catch you unaware when you don't! The traction button may as well have a skull and cross bones on it as it is certainly a button of descending doom!! Snow... Don't even bother taking it out anywhere near the white stuff, you'll either get stuck in it on Christmas Day (yes I did) or you'll just die, in a bush, but you will be very comfortable in the nappa leather seats... Would I have another one? Hell yeah!!!
