I bought my 1999 E39 M5 a couple of weeks age and have been on the 5 series forum since then but nobody seems to be on there much so I'll be posting some questions regarding my car shortly.
All in all, I'm pretty impressed with it. Its a V reg, Carbon black with full black leather. 93k with FSH.
Its mostly Jap stuff I've had in the past (3 300+bhp Imprezas and a 350bhp Evo6) but with 3 kids, they're not suitable now.
The MPG is surprisingly good considering the size and weight of it. I've seen 28 on the motorway and averaging 19.
Anyway, I'm off to post some questions about my Vanos in the other section.......
