My girlfriend's uncle (a huge BMWBJ homer) was telling me that the F10 M5 would wipe the floor with a C7 Corvette Z06 crackup[1].gif he kept it up even after I pointed out the stark power to weight ratio advantages of the Z06....

Regaled me with stories of him beating out a C4 ZR-1 with his e34 540i M-Sport on the streets of Queens back in the 90's.

I think the only thing close or similar between the two cars is the delusional middle-aged white guy in the driver's seat.

He's certainly delusional, though not white. He also claimed that his e39 M5 with 105k miles on it and a salvage title would go for $35k on the market today. Come on...

Would fit right in on the BMW forums.

If GF wasn't a small timer, you could probably point him to a buyer.:rolleyes:

As you know, I'm a BMW fanboi. They make amazing cars.

However, they also make PoS starter cars for a douche. You need only search this thread on how much I hate the i3, i8, the EPS on the LCI F10 (non Ms), the X1 and X3, the terrible phoned-in sound on the even LCI F1x M cars, yada yada.

The counter is the M3/4 line which they've never screwed up imo, something about the S70/2 and McLaren, and the current 7 series.

...the GF's uncle (not to be confused with our esteemed @greenfrog) claiming $35k should sell his car and use the proceeds to check himself into a $2k out-patient asylum.

Here is an iphone pic of the new wheels. Will try and get something in the sunlight soon. Was cloudy as hell this weekend.

I think every family needs the crazy ones to make get togethers palatable. Their stories are usually 2 generations removed from us, and even our parents can't verify or dispute most of them.

What if that e34 5 did beat that Vette? What if my grandfather did actually ward off a dozen Nazis while killing a king cobra in a trench in France in WWII? I mean, it's possible.

P car shooting brake looks damn fine. Will be keeping my eye on it.

Now that is a hot hatch indeed.
