How many miles on your M5?

I'm an e39er (00 540), but have an eye for your style M5. I was wondering the mileages on your cars? Is it worth mid 20s with close to 80K on the clock?

Oh, that is SO wrong in SO many ways. I have a BWM because I am secure in my masculinity.

Gone.

The S4 Avant will soon be gone too.

As soon as I got the M5 I realized that it is everything that we need in a sedan.

This.

I learned the cheap and OEM way to fix my MAF problem there.

I also learned the low Gen 13 BT volume fix there.

And the procedures for taking out the NAV screen to install the AUX.

I think mine is worth around mid 20's. (At least I hope, it's kind of depressing how much our M5's have depreciated the last year) I have an 02 with 70k on the clock and BB Tri Flo exhaust.

I wish that were true. I have an 02' with 70k too. Can't imagine it'd go for more than $22k.

Smile # of miles on my M5

Hello - I own a "as new" 2000 w/ 0 bemishes of any kind and never seen rain and has only 28K. It also has the eintire S2 package minus the strut tower brace and the brake upgrade. It also has all the options like the PDC, suede headliner, navi and the ultra lite Dinan wheels.

You'd wear condoms if you married Jessica Alba?

I had 81K Miles when I sold my 2002 M5 this summer. It had NO Vanos issues and didn't burn oil, and ran perfectly. I would NOT buy a 2000 or 2001 model, which were prone to oil burning, carbon deposits, and Vanos problems.
The guy who bought my stock M5 has invested about $20K in upgrades, and runs about 650hp (supercharged). No problems so far...but I wouldn't typically recommend this on 81K mile car. As for price...lower mid 20's is about right for good to very good cond.
