    About 98% of the E39 and E60 B-Roll footage you used shows the non-M version but it's fine I guess

  • Thairish  (Jan 29, 2019))

    That's right. Absolutely pathetic.

  • ZerokillerOppel1  (Jan 14, 2019))

  • djsonicc  (Aug 16, 2018))

    E39 M5 is definitely the best M5

  • DJ Productions  (Feb 9, 2019))

  • ricer daily  (Jan 22, 2019))

  • Nupur Pal  (Jan 28, 2019))

  • Ben Perone  (Nov 15, 2018))

  • IMPlive 17  (Feb 4, 2019))

  • WarAnakin  (Jan 3, 2019))

    loud and overly excited for no reason, as if his job depended on it

  • Desmond moonbear  (Aug 12, 2018))

    Up to speed on Cosworth

  • Joey Somboonsit  (Aug 16, 2018))

    This is probably one of the most dislike of their video.. I don’t blame the fans. Footage was a quite a lazy attempt...

  • larry Zeldin  (Dec 29, 2018))

    They showed one face lifted e39I had two e39 540s a 97 and 99 All you really needed to do was get the headlights,tail lights and then it would be hard to tell which year it was unless you were an enthusiast.The bumpers and sport package steering wheels were a way an enthusiast can tell them apart.I made my 99 look like an M5. I went as far as swapping the steering wheel and cluster which was costly af.I had the full M5 body treatment with custom quad exhaust and I even did the mirrors and got seat...

  • Greg Frank  (Nov 15, 2018))

    Yeah, he says e39 is his favorite but most of the e39 shots aren't M cars, they're ugly prefacelift ones

  • theprogamer981  (Dec 17, 2018))

    At 2:35 its called Freund (Boyfriend) and not Freundin (Girlfriend). I know you give your best and put up the good work! But I had to make it clear.

  • WarAnakin  (Jan 3, 2019))

    i don't think they actually bother reading the comments

  • carrier7676  (Aug 9, 2018))

    Seriously, I was excited when I saw the title of the video, but as I kept watching the video all I was doing was getting more and more pissed off! None of the E39's were actually M5's! WTF?!?! And the kept inserting pictures of the wrong engines when describing the cars! Who the hell edited this video, a reluctant Mercedes groupie? This video needs a SERIOUS re-edit!

  • Thrash Trash  (Jan 31, 2019))

    Its just Nolan's lazy editing, nothing to get that mad over.

  • ZAWHER NOS  (Nov 15, 2018))

    That doesn't matter
