    All this E60/61 love.:)

    Other than test drives, only had a week in an E61... a new LCI 535d M-sport. Never quite tempted me out of the E91, but almost. :sneaky:

    Was this example.

    I like the look of that E60 mate.
    I've had 2, an e60 and an e61 and loved them both< im now in a F11 since 2014 and run up 130k miles.
    i know i should have sold by now but its such a great car.
    still a smooth as when i got it, its a 6cyl 530d. and consistently get about 43mpg on my daily run.
    Hope you enjoy as much as i do

    Love the 550i.

    I might have bought an M550i if they were available in the uk, but alas no.

    Love a V8!!

    Another F11 owner... Same issue for me, been running mine for 7-years, come September.

    Seeing as it is also a picture thread, let's add an F11.:cautious:

    Back to the E60/61, the one I let get away, after Olli put me on to it and I had first refusal to buy. A contender for the best 'usable' E61 available in the UK. A serious alternative to the E61 M5. I 'semi' regret not going for it, I hesitated on running it up here in the Highlands.

    Ahhh ok, so we can include “the one that got away”, as well as ones we owned?

    I love a fast estate...albeit I am biased.

    That said, I did 310 miles in the M3C yesterday, to Goodwood and back and it impressed me. Just not great for a dog. Great excuse for a picture though!

    As this is turning into a pic heavy thread, here's a few of my previous examples of The Ultimate Driving Machine...

    Miss each and every one [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I’ve had my fair share of five series and still love the look of a polished E60
