I love this car way too much.  I recently hit 175,000 miles and its still a beast.  

If this car ever wears out, I'll be replacing it with another e39 M5.  

Only a few tasteful modifications:

  • dinan differential gears - i'll take more acceleration over the already absurd top speed of 180mph
     

  • ECU reflash - a few more horeseponies and top speed limiter removed
     

  • lowered 1/2" with Bilsteins
     

  • short throw shifter
