I'm Back!

Well, I followed through on my 2 year goal to get an M5. Some here may remember my attending the M5 experience at LimeRock and M5/M6GCs at CoTA.

My last one was an '02 M5 I had for 5 years. I took advantage of year end deals, to get out of my 335is lease a bit early for a 2015 M5 on the lot.
Not exactly as I would spec but close enough.

My specs: Alpine White, full black Nappa leather interior, Anthracite wood trim, Exec Package, Driver Assistance Plus, black 20's, & enhanced BT & Smartphone.

Only iPhone pics at the dealer so far.

Nothing like driving a brand new 560hp car home in 37 degree rainy weather.

Yes, I work with Mike Morrow at Independence, but this was actually a Northlake car.
