Thanks. That gives me some idea of worth.

Since these were somewhat limited production runs how available are parts and how expensive are they?

So, what is a ballpark as to the worth of this?

1991 M5
No rust
Interior in decent shape, no rips or tears in seats.
185000 miles
Been repainted, but paint in decent shape.

Any gotcha's I need to look at in particular?

Thanks in advance.
