Professional Golfer Stuart Appleby grew up in country Victoria and has always had a passion for cars, in particular he's an avid BMW fan, favouring the M5. But a country boy at heart, the love of utes never quite waned and with no M5 ute available in BMW's showroom, Stuart did the next best thing - build his own.

The concept had been a dream for a number of years and even Stuart admits it's "a bit out of left field", but determined to see it through, the M5 was unveiled at Deni to a very positive crowd reaction.

Originally purchased in 2006, the M5 sedan was converted by Shane Rowe, owner of Southern Rod & Custom here in Deniliquin. Shane over saw all design, fabrication, mechanical and custom work to deliver Stuart a "turn key" M5 Ute, just in time for Deni.
