How about a 4 door grocery getter BMW, with a v10, three pedals, and can see the north side of 205 MPH?
An E61 M5 is/was my dream car for quite some time. There are a few members on the BMW forums working on E61 535xi to M5 touring conversions, but it's tough to replace the S85 even with the highly tunable N54.

The new M550d Touring looks amazing as well and checks both boxes of being a grocery getter and an oil burner. Of course they're not bringing it to the US either, but it would be fun trying to talk your way out of a 200 mph speeding ticket in a diesel wagon.

Thanks for accepting me to the group! I'm firmly in the dreamer category by most definitions now, but really appreciate every opportunity I get to be around exotics.

Indeed! I'd love an e61 m5 with an outdated 6 speed. One of my friends in ME in working an e61 conversion, in addition to some DCT/s85 conversions.

The m550d looks like it would fun.

We Europeans didn't get the fantasmatic 6 speed manual :(
But you get all the other cool cars.

I never understood/acccpted BMW rationale for not offering the 6 speed to Europe. With that said, SMG to 6 speed swaps are successfully taking place in The States and on your side of The Pond.

id be hard pressed to sell my 1 of 97 "last of the normally aspirated v10, antiquated 6 speed, m5s" produced.

He is saying he has a car that only has 97 total of them made........Generally it's specific to the options on the vehicle.

Usually a couple years after a vehicle comes out you can find the reports of the options and how many were produced.

Well, I was surprised they made only 97 three-pedal E60 M5.
Could be including the options he has on his vehicle as well. Some options are overpriced, or just stupid and no one gets them. As time goes on, those options become very rare due to those reasons.

Oops! "1 of 97 Interlagos Blue" 6 speeds in the US. I think the number is down to 96, as there was wrecked/totaled Interlagos Blue 6 speed on CoPart the other day.

Damn edit feature on my iPhone accidentally erased what I typed.

1364 total 6 speeds were produced from the factory:
