Saw an E12 M5 today. Sexy car
 
Just wanted to say i saw one. I've never actually seen an E12 before, let alone an E12 M5. It was a very sexy looking beast.

It was black with black tint. I think the paint was new it was really really sharp. Had white BBS's with a nice chrome lip. looked pretty good actually.

Was there an e12 m5, i thought the e28 was the 1st m5.

I checked wikipedia and the closest there would be to an e12 m5 is a M535i which would not have been for sale in the us.

Here is the link: Wikipedia 5 series link.

I also checked there for the m5 page and there is no mention of an e12 m5.

But sounds like a cool spoting, did Cameron in Ferris Buelers day off have an e12 that was his POS, i always thought thats what his car looked like.

yeah, i musta been an E28. the E12 and E28 are very similar, and the M5 first came out during the E28 era.

yes, as the others said, it was probably an e28, however since you probably know what an e12 looks like, it is probably someone who has an e12 that put an ///M5 badge on there :(

definitely wasn't an E28. wasnt a M535i either musta been a wanna be. It looked cool though.

That would make sense, since the original M, the M1, was produced between '78 and '81.

ya was definatly a wanna be, as stated above there was no e12 m5 there was an M535 though

What a funny thing this thread, ever since I saw this thread. I have seen 2 E28 M5's (both mint) and an alpina B7.
