17.5 is definitely too much..might sound like a broken record but rule of thumb when a person does aftermarket upgrades to a car it actually depreciates in value.. people sell cars with upgrades because some of those upgrades might appeal to a lot of people and they look at it as they dont have to do it.. Original M5 with same mileage and same year is worth more than that car.. it has a chip etc but things can go bad real quick if that stuff wasn't tuned properly or works for only a certain amount of time.. People try to get their money back on upgrades they did to a car which is fine some person will almost always buy it, but point is it surely isn't worth 17.5k.... that paint job is bad..not because of color.. but the trim is painted over takes away from the car natural contour.. that bumper has either been replaced or hit.. the bumper angle isn't correct if you look closely it has a decreasing angle. Those lights are quite ugly as well which can be replaced.. but you need to know this stuff for negotiating power if u decide to partake on this endeavor.. be careful.
