Richard Scheer's 2000 M5

My V1 affixed to the oval M5 mirror. I used the V1 sun visor mount,
modified by removing the visor clip, and attached it to the bottom left of
the mirror using Velcro and a single countersunk screw. It's much more
secure than either the suction cups to the windshield which always fall
off, or the visor clip mount which renders the visor useless and also puts
the V1 in the darker area at the top of the windshield, thereby decreasing
the V1's effective range.

The installation was wired per Peter M. Glaskowsky's instructions at
http://www.ideaphile.com/bmw/v1/index.html. (Unlike Peter's 540i, I didn't
use the V1 remote display unit in my M5.)

Since I sold my Land Rover, I use the M5 offroad. Not.

Little pink houses and Carbon Black M5s for you and me.

Carbon Black looks blue under certain lighting conditions, such as basking in the golden glow of the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas.

Not my neon lowrider lights. A desert sunrise
refracted off the exhaust to produce the blue flame effect.

Not my engine, thankfully (mine's not been unshrouded yet). Peek inside: eight individual throttle bodies, four cams, a
jewel.
