And for some reason, I detest the bumper on this car, looks like too much, kinda ruins the lines for me.

Registration and excise tax here are one and the same. You pay it every year and all at once.

Haha, I've seen exactly 3 other E39 M5s in the time I've owned mine (3 years), so it is very uncommon. It definitely isn't the coasts when it comes to the car scene, but there are some strong collectors around. I was shocked when someone rolled into a car show with a Chiron (not a dealer).

Does it though? The torque just passes through the diff on the way to the tires. The only torque load the case has to take is whatever drive losses come through the diff, the rest of it is passed to the tires.

Thrust load is definitely a thing but probably not much.

Phoenix Yellow looked like Mustard Sh*t when it first came out to me, now it looks quite stunning!

However I'd never be caught dead in the car, because as soon as you exceed the speed limit, it's like wearing a giant foam finger saying "PULL ME OVER PLEASE"

My Ride: 2015 Chevy SS


I love it but only for a non-daily driver car. I would feel like such a knob driving that thing around every day to work, kids school, etc.

This is not a BaT gem, but something I've been clocking for quite some time. Supposedly they can be built for $15K claimed by Factory Five. However at the end of this vid, Matt Farrah asks the dude what the all in cost was and his response was "If you want to get these set up like a production car, they can be anywhere from 40-60K" LOL And then admits this particular one is in the close to 60K category. F that, I know it's REALLY quick and my god the sounds are amazing, but would it make you swoon more than a hellcat at this price? or maybe even newish M2 Comp? Probs not.

But maybe, just maybe. My lord the sounds this car makes, it makes you want to stay away from electric cars forever.

Here's the M3Inline6 mobile! He might be able to get this one at a good price on BaT, unless the reserve is ridiculous. HA
