    I love your updates, your M5, Strasbourg, and, most of all, Glühwein!

    Glad to see someone that repairs their alternators instead of replacing with questionable re-manufactured units. I haven't replaced an alternator in probably 25-30 years. I always have the original units rebuilt... same with most starters I've serviced over the years. Saves a lot of money.

    Awesome Christmas pics! We were in Puerto Rico during the Christmas season a few years ago. It was so cool seeing how other countries/cultures do Christmas. I really enjoyed it

    His pictures give me the really really really bad idea of hunting down one of the uber rare Avus M5s.

    Thanks, San. More fun to read with pictures

    It's a habit at this point, plus taking pictures when disassembling something is a good practice. It bailed me out a few times when the time comes to put it back together.

    Merci, Pizzaman!

    Strasbourg was incredibly beautiful during the Christmas market season, but when it comes to food and drinks, Germans rule.

    I couldn't agree more, Rob. Repairing the original unit surely beats buying re-manufactured ones from the quality and financial standpoint. Many would junk the whole thing just because of a bad regulator or bearings. I haven't dealt with starters yet, but I would def try tp repair it when it comes to that.

    Definitely, we went to the Netherlands for the weekend and we had a great time. Puerto Rico sounds like an ideal destination during these cold winter months.

    Thanks, Will! Once I repaint the hood and the front bumper, I'll do a complete detail with paint correction and it will look even better!

    I think next when you visit Deutschland and you drive mine on the Autobahn, that Avus M5 should be a done deal.


    We visited city Den Bosch in the Netherlands over the weekend and had a great time with a friend. First time in the Netherlands for me and I loved it, wonderful city and we are planning Amsterdam for the next year.

    The weather sucked and I didn't take many photos as it was constant rain. I put almost 500 miles on the M5 under heavy rain and it didn't miss a beat.

    One wet M5.
