    I have a 2007 M6 black on black with carbon fiber trim. At 500+ horse power it's a beast but a LOT of fun to drive.

    Anyone else have an M series beemer?

    Are you on drugs? It's got Bangle Butt. And every car CaliTheKid owns has "Hot Wheels" imprinted on the bottom.

    I actually like Chris Bangle's designs. Now if we are talking about Pierre Terblanche's Ducati designs. Well.... :puking:

    I have a 2002 M5. Love it to death. I just can't get over the looks of the new ones. Perhaps an M6 will be my next car. But really, 400 HP is all I can use anyway. Can't use full throttle in 1st and 2nd gear anyway. Just get wheel spin.

    I'll admin that Bangle Butt isn't the most awkward rear end treatment on any modern luxury car ...

    ...but it is a close second.

    Just a 2007 335 here. With twin turbo cars being so easily modified I already have more HP and TQ then the 2008 M3 which will roll on out next month in the US.

    BMW's are a weakness of mine, this will be one I hang on to for a long time.
    M6 wheels though.

    love the 335 I have a couple of friends with them, one 4 door the other 2 door, nice cars, I might get one for a daily driver. Vishnu PROcede v2.02, BMC Airfilter, RD Sport Quad Exhaust, RD Sport Intercooler and lighter wheels and it should be a mid to low 12 second car

    I love your M5! I own a 04 545I and the M5] is on the list of vehicles to look at when I replace the 545 in a couple of months. It is either a M5 or a new 550I. Do you find that the 500 HP setting is too much for city traffic? I see the gas mileage listed 8-10 MPG, is really that bad?

    Absolutley. I just got my Vishnu Procede v2 harness upgrade in the mail today (ordered sept 5th). I went with a Britalman catback and have a gruppeM (rep) intake on order. Great daily driver and about 20k less than the new m3 out the door. Don't get me wrong, love the M3, but a little out of my range.

    When I do the upgrade, I should be hitting 375 wheel hp and 405 wheel tq. 0-60 in the low 4's and 1/4 mile in the 12.3-12.5 range around 112mph.

    I love my car MPG sucks, sometimes it shows 6.8MPG, but overall when just driving it from home to work I get 10 to 14 mpg, now when its time to whoop on those gallardos mpg goes to shiet, the good thing about the E60 M5 is that when in the 500hp mode, you could still do a great launch, without peeling tires this is because of the low torque even though it has 500hp torque is low at 383? BTW heres the video of one my friends going 211 MPH on an less modify M5 than mine.
    Enjoy

    Neither get much love, but I'm a fan of the hump-backed Sevilles and the M Coupe.
