+1. Happy research on m5board.com! It's all about how the prior owners treated the car. The M5 is all about appropriate maintenance.

Nice car - good luck with sale! Should not be hard to sell and I think your price is fair.

As an aside, your car looks like Space Gray to me rather than Silver. Maybe it is just the light.

Great pictures - thanks for posting!

P.S. Those worn-tire pictures are priceless!
