Ok guys, some of you might find this gay, but I think it's pretty cool. Last night I was bored at aproximately 10p.m. and decided to see what E39 M5's were running. Now while I am new to this forum some of you may remember that my old man had an M5 and it is what I took my driver's test in. Well long story short, my father bought the M5 from Paul Miller BMW in Wayne, NJ in 2000 and it was the first M5 registered in the state of NJ. Quite an honor IMO. He leased the car for three years, all the while having some of the greatest experiences in the car. Well in 2003, the lease ran up and my Dad had planned to buy the car out. My mother not being thrilled with its lack of performance in snow, asked him if he could trade it in for another car. My father being quite the husband (WHIPPED!!!!) to my mom did indeed trade it in all the while being very depressed that he had gotten rid of his all time favorite car. Well going back to last night, I was scanning one of the many used car sites and found a silver M5 quite like his for sale in VA. Curious I logged on to his bmwusa.com owner's page and got the Vin # of the M5 he once owned. Going back to the ad, I had found I realized I had found is car!!! He got rid of it with 35,000 and today it has only 58,000 and its for sale for $24,000. I spoke to my mom about this and we decided we are going to buy it for him for his 60th birthday. I feel this is a great story, and it's quite amazing that I stumbled upon this last night. I am not one for believing in Karma or anything but I have to say I wonder if something above us connected me with this find. Either way it's a great find and I am really excited and hope he is super excited. There's my story let me know what you think, and if you think he will be psyched!!!
