Ok bro man, I don't like how he said "kid" I know it is expensive but I also know how Bimmers can reach 300k miles easy. I would need a rebuild but I got it figured out. I like engines and have been working on them my whole life.

I want the real thing not my impostor that got totaled by some soccer mom. I have that initial $3k for maintenance right off the back.

Things that make the m5 worth it

Alcantara Headliner $500
Extended leather $1000
Navigation $350
m5 cluster $150
m5 illuminated shift knob $100
m5 bumpers $1000
m5 belly pan $100
m5 splash guards $100
m5 fender liners $100
m5 doorsills $200
m5 impact strips $100
m5 mirrors 499
m5 mirror modules $180
quad exhaust $150
fold down rear seats $400
Brand New tires $1000
Plus 120 more hp $3500(based off of lalarays supercharger)
LSD 3.15 $400
transmission $600

I could part it out and still make my money back.

I mean plus its an actual m5 not my fake m5 or want to be like my friends say to me
