    Yes! Sold!

    Took some crappy pics as seen above but will try to find some time and place to take some proper pics.

    This car is an absolute animal, especially on cold starts in an enclosed space :bounce2:

    Had the car for less than 24 hours and already spent 85 bucks on gas lol.

    When the buyer of my ZHP drove off I definitely did the walk away but turn around to see my baby go maneuver :(.

    New owner saw so and revved the car as he left. Good man (that was cheesy as fuck lol).

    Congrats on the M5. Put back the stock grill, buy yourself a nice set of wheels and sell those painted monstrosities and you've got yourself a keeper.

    I know I talked shit about your zhp but I love that colour. I love the colour of teh M5 too. Not really into the black wheels but if you put a "hotwheels stripe" on them they will look pretty good. If not then join a M5 board and trade some young kid for his standard polished ones. The black kidneys need to stay put. Let me test drive it. Get rid of the tint.

    Congrats, GF! Someone I knew at work had that M5, and in Interlagos, and I loved it. Inspired me to get an Interlagos car, too. I personally like the tint; do what you like, don't mind the haters. Have fun, be safe.

    not hating, it wouldn't be SF if we didn't opine on aesthetics.. I'm with Drew on disliking the blue and black, I think hypersilver wheels would look fucking sharp but but cannot knock the car. enjoy GF

    Congrats on the M5, GF. Do not get any more tickets! And please do not get a custom plate like you had for the ZHP. Please.

    Grabbing drinks and food and heading to a slightly stoopid concert in a bit so I'll address everyone's comments tomorrow, but just wanted to drop this cold-start sound clip off.

    Didn't rev it too much, for obvious reasons. Sounds best with headphones on!

    BTW, began searching for some wheels for my car and have some ideas but wanted to see if you guys had any recommendations. Will be interesting to see how all our tastes differ!
