Like-new 2003 M5!!!

Should I buy it? What do you think? I don't know why no one drove it all this time. Carfax shows it failed emissions once. Doesn't make sense to me, this car...

Not sure what happened to my first reply... I was looking at this car and wondering the same thing as you. Price is steep but I wonder why it didn't pass emissions and why nobody's driven the thing??? Here's another good one closer to you http://www.autotrader.com/fyc/vdp.js...standard=false

There have been numerous discussions regarding this car on m5board.com. Can't remember exactly what was discussed but if you are interested in the car, hop over there and check it out.

Like new, but no warranty and not cared for as one would expect for such a "specimen" price. (Well, nobody has any proof it was serviced- started regularly, oil changes based on time, etc) Nothing has been stressed to see if there are any latent defects.

If you are a collector and can afford any refurbishing costs, this would be an amazing addition to a collection.

m5board.com for all things M5....

I have a 2003 M5 in near perfect condition. Here is the link: http://chicago.craigslist.org/wcl/ctd/1410447888.html
I would appreciate feedback from any of you M5 experts out there.
