    Introducing the cleanest 11sec e39 m5 in the world

    True statement I think Click here to enlarge

    only 2 recorded 11 second e39 M5's that I know of.

    Spent a good 5+ hours with Adam detailing his M5. Being silver its pretty damned hard to document just what a difference this effort made, but in person the smoothness, gloss, depth, and total shine were greatly improved.

    Fantastic car, ran a 11.95 at 119mph w ESS s/c a few weeks ago, going back to MIR on the 18th for a 120mph trap or bust (likely the clutch lol)

    ================================================== =


    Car was already washed w Dawn very thoroughly, 1st small section on the hood revealed this mess:
