Back in 2012, I was shopping for an Interlagos Blue E60 M5 with plans to move to California.
Life circumstances changed my plans and I stayed in Canada.
The market has changed in a decade: good cars are getting rarer than ever and the market is as depressed as it's ever been.
I got my hands on one.
I have so much to say about how perfectly imperfect the V10 M5 is.
The automotive equivalent of “cocaine and hookers”.
Welcome to my build journal.

My latest entries
Welcome to V10 breath works.
I doubled down: the SMG3 is damned no more. In this entry, I record a video clip and document my driving impressions with the YFCM carbon fiber driveshaft in a caricature that only SMG owners will resonate with: the anticipation flexes.
My E60 M5 is a MY2006 produced for the Canadian market. It is finished in Sepang Bronze Metallic and is equipped with the SMG3 hydraulic transmission.
The car was heavily optioned with Adaptive Sport Seats, Alcantara headliner and other signature features of the E60 M5.
The interior is unfortunately fitted in Walnut Wood trims but is atleast finished in Merino Black leather.
