In old Top Gear Tiff Nedell smoked the tyres off an e39 M5 (reg no 400BHP) which is a classic now but was brand new back in 1999. I remember watching that episode and deciding that I had to have one!

Chris Harris owns an e28 M5 and used to own an e39 M5 (not sure if he still has them both).

Clarkson once owned a 3.0 CSL, but I don't recall seeing anything older than an e30 until now.
Bizarrely, they dropped an E30 from a crane in a segment about the death of Saab. :evil:

That's a real, really old episode... And despite my/our love for BMW, the SAAB did a whole lot better...

What about that episode with the 3 325i cabrios. Ugly, beat up, cheapest in the market. Some had blood, crap and sperm on the interior... Great episode.
