2006 BMW M5 - Week 7

The 2006 BMW E60 M5 is a gorgeous piece of metal. The BMW M5 is a high performance version of the 5 series BMW built by the Motorsport division of the company. It is a RWD (rear wheel drive), five-passenger sedan with a 5.0 L V10 engine. It has a 7-speed SMGIII transmission (sequential manual gearbox; single-clutch semi-automatic transmission. The "III" represents the 3rd generation SMG transmission), which is an electrohydraulic manual transmission, goes from 0-60 in 4.1 seconds, comes with 500 hp at 7750 rpm, and has a top speed of 205 mph.

There was this one day where Danny and I were cruising down US-27 in his dads M5, and all of a sudden we hear sirens go off. Danny looks at his rear view mirror and says "5-0 behind us", so i turn around and see a cop behind us. He pulls over to the side of the road and the officer asks for his license and registration. We then ask him why he pulled us over and he told us that the car was too loud and low. But we obviously have no control over that. So the cop left us with a warning and we never road in the beautiful white M5 again, because its too disturbing and we'll probably get pulled over again. So we're just going to leave that to his dad lol.


  1. thats unfortunate. i don't understand why a cop would care why your car was doing its thing.

  2. That's horrible! I'm sorry that happened to you. It's great that you got to enjoy the car and have fun while you had it.

  3. This kind of thing happens to my cousin all the time. I think it's dumb to pull over a car by the stance and the noise it makes.
