Just joined the CCA after acquiring my second BMW, a 2009 M6! Have driven a 2004 545i Sport, 6MT since 2006. Now sadly for sale, what a great car. Before the 545i, I drove a 1993 M-B S320 (big W140 chassis S-Class) for 13 years. In 2005, I started attending some M-B AMG Driving Academy classes, and developed a "lust" for performance driving. Thus the need to swap the big S-class for something more performance oriented. I was hooked on the 545i after the first few minutes of the test drive. Left M-B and never looked back. Started lusting after the V10 ///M cars very soon after that. Looking forward to many more years with this Ultimate BMW.
