Naturally aspirated V10 paired with a manual gearbox - does it get any better? Yes, if your garage is 5 minutes away from derestricted Autobahn. I bought the most "reliable" BMW and started fixing on it, it'll be a while before this astonishing car is ready to hit the Autobahn as it needs to pass German inspection first but follow along as I throw money at it and get it back into the shape it deserves to be.

As soon as he started speaking English with the driver, conversation dried up. "blablabla" "ok" "blablabla" "ok" "blablabla" "ok". You're lucky. Despite the lack of records, this car has been maintained reasonably well.

On the driver's side you can see color differences between the front door and the rear door. Accident car?

Why do they care about an aftermarket sway bar? That's what happens when you have politicians making laws for no reason. A law by definition should be to protect people without damaging anyone unintentionally.

Brilliant video as they all are. You have great editing skills. I've been binge watching your old videos and it's pretty impressive what you've done and you managed to document it all professionally. I owned an E34. A special car... September '95 build 540i 6-speed. Anyway, I feel connected to the series, and you do a great job. Keep up the good work.

LoL, that delivery driver was NOT impressed! =D I could see his thoughts like they were in a comic book think bubble "crazy moron, importing an ancient clapped out 5-series from the US... Doesn't he realise Bavaria is 250 km away?" He didn't seem to get more impressed with the explanation of it being a manual transmission one, either! =D
GeFeldz
GeFeldz Prije mjesec
It's very weird that the manual M5s were NA only... Upside down world. The BMW that engineered and produced the manual-only E39 M5 predecessor seems like a very different company. Manual transmissions are still the norm (i think, maybe that's changed by now) in europe. In Sweden, if you take your driver's license test with an automatic car, you can only drive automatic cars. I'm a bit strange for a swede, because i like automatic transmissions. I do love a solid manual transmission with nice and tight gearshifts and a nice feeling clutch to go with it, but for driving in town nothing beats an auto. I'm a land-barge kind of guy, though, my 1968 Cadillac DeVille convertible is about as good as cars get, DAT 700NM 7.7L V8! BIG cars with BIG torque and a comfortable ride are just awesome. Manual transmissions are for sporty cars and for sporty driving, in which case they're marvelous. I do miss my old 1981 BMW 323i...

Why would you take such poor care of your car when you drive an M5.. Having a car like that must mean that you care about cars at least some bit..

Andrew4181975
Andrew4181975 Prije mjesec
I've driven quite a few of these M5s the E60 "Bangle" cars just look horrible, but the F1 derived V10 engine is really cool. At least , you don't have to look at it when you drive it. I'd still stay away from them because of all the complicated electrical issues. One interesting thing about these cars is that that Manual Transmission is from the previous "real" E39 M5 because BMW didn't want to design a special transmission just for the Americans that demanded a manual version of the car even though the take on the manual transmission was still low. Since you have both maybe you can verify this,but it makes sense.
