Smile Hello from London

Good morning everyone. Thanks to member rohin for introducing me to this site. It's nice to see there is a healthy 'petrolhead' community in India. I'm looking forward to some interesting viewpoints & discussions

You have a E39 M5 AND an E60 M5! Some guys have all the luck. How about a quick summarised comparo? Admit it, you prefer the E39, dont you?

I have a feeling that you are the same Ashok from the M5 Board.

Welcome to the team

Great pics of the car man it looks very hot, just love the colour of the car.

Ashok,

Your car looks to die for. Congratulations! Was just reading in the Autocar of how the E60 M5 was licking Ferraris 430 up and down. And that with space for 5 passengers alongwith their luggage.
