In Reply to: Wanna be M5...what up with some E39 people.. posted by Mbima on July 03, 2000 at 20:18:05:

Last weekend, some green haired 18 year old came up to me while I was pumping gas and asked if my 540 6-speed was an M5. I guess he probably noticed that my sports package wheels looked different than the usually 5 series rims and figured he had spotted an M5. I guess he didn't notice that my car doesn't have an M badge on it, and merely says 540i.

: Man, that was the second in one week...A 528i badged with a M5 badge...As much as I like the 5 series but putting a M5 badge on a non-M5 is plain stupid and dumb. That's worse the 'rice'...
: Every (all of this board for sure) BMW driver can distinguish a M5 from a 'regular' 5 series....Please who ever these people are and you are reading this take of that stupid M5 badge and get real...or better buy the real M5 if you wanna have that badge for real.
