Up for sale is my beloved 1991 M5 build date 02/90. Last 7 of VIN is BK05912. This car was originally a Hawaii car and was brought here in the early 2000's and therefore has NO RUSR. The car is up to date on all services and I have done extensive repairs and maintenance since I took ownership slightly over three years ago. I bought the car with 179k miles and it currently has 199k miles so I only put on about 6k miles per year. I have receipts totaling over $40k to make this one of the best driving e34 ///M5's on the road. As you will see in one of the pictures I have a 3 inch thick binder filled with receipts. Everything works on this car as is should including the cruise control as well.

Im sure that there are things that I am leaving out or cannot remember at the moment as I have my service records in the car which is not currently at my house, but as I said I have over $40k in receipts for the last 16k miles.

Upgrades that were done to the car
-Bavarian Autosport Suspension w/SLS (Self-Leveling Suspension) Deleted
-Turner/Conforti Chip 310hp stock/ 350hp with chip
-B&B Tri-Flo Exhaust with custom straight pipes (25-30whp)
-UUC SSK (Short Shift Kit) With DSSR
-750il Thrust Rod Bushings
-Racing Dynamics Strut Brace
-Throwing Star Wheel Covers on BMW M-System II Forged wheels (BMW Made 2 exactly the same style wheels for this car, one set was forged, one wasn't. These are forged.)
-Wheels custom refinished by Wheel Collision Center in PA with custom Machine Finished Lips and all Throwing Star Covers and center caps were either refinished or replaced. All Roundel emblems on wheels were replaced
-Alpine 9887 Head Unit (with iPod hookup) which lights up orange to match the cluster and red to match the illuminated shift knob/heater controls
-MB Quart "Q" Series component speakers front & reat with JL Audio 300/4 amplifier, with power distribution block, crossovers hidden behind trunk paneling
-JL Audio 8w7 Subwoofer in customer enclosure powered by JL Audio 500/1 Mono Amp
-All RCA wires are top of the line JL Audio and all power cables are top of the line JL Audio too
-Custom built to still have access to spare tire, which is also an M-System Wheel with a throwing star cover on it and extra center cap

**This is honestly the best balanced stereo I have ever built, the highs and clarity are amazing, the bass is just enough, sounds great but will not rattle your mirrors or set of car alarms, not to mention it barely weighs down the car with one 8 inch woofer.

-Optima Blue Top Battery (no flickering lights when running stereo)
-Total Cost for stereo installation with stereo components was $4400
-Custom battery wire ran to and hidden in trunk in case battery dies, since these cars have electronic locks and the battery is under the rear seat, you can put power to the battery through the trunk in order to get into the car to jump start it.
-Viper Alarm with Pager system & Remote start, 2 remotes, however only 1 is a pager but both can be used as a remote start
-Hagus Euro ///M5 mirrors with split blind spot glass
-Euro bumper corner trim with sidemarker delete
-///M5 front and rear OEM plate frames
-New OEM illuminated shift knob
-Retrofitted e46 e-brake handle
-6000k xenon lights with slim ballasts that are hidden, when you pop the hood everything looks factory
-OEM BMW Euro Clears all around which are now NLA
-M-Tech Steering Wheel, smaller diameter and closer to steering column controls than stock wheel
-Brake Fluid Flushed with ATE Super Blue Racing Fluid
-20% Tint all around (except windshield)
Again, I'm sure there are some things that I'm missing here

Items included with the sale of the car
-Additional Set of M-System II Forged Wheels w/turbine covers and Michelin Pilot Alpin Snow Tires (wheels could use refinishing but are more than presentable for winter wheels)
-Stainless Steel Brake and Clutch Lines
-Slave Cylinder (nothing wrong with the current one, was going to install with the new lines but never got around to it)
-Various Trim Pieces

NOW THE BEST PART...I JUST SPENT 9 MONTHS HAVING THE CAR PROFESSIONALLY PAINTED. THE WHOLE CAR WAS PAINTED WITH THE GLASS OUT MINUS THE DOOR DAMBS BECAUSE THEY WERE STILL IN GREAT SHAPE. THE CAR WAS PAINTED FACTORY GLANSCHWARZ WITH SIKKENS GERMAN PAINT AND 3 LAYERS OF CLEAR. EVERYTHING WAS REPLACED WHEN THE CAR WAS PAINTED
-Windshield along with all windshield trim
-All bumper mouldings (Euro Mouldings Installed)
-All door/fender/quarter panel impact strips
-Rear ///M5 filler plate
-All Roundels
-///M5 trunk and grille badges

-All Door Handle Trim with Rubber Gaskets (Not installed but will be prior to new buyer purchasing)

*Items that need to be completed and will be prior to new buyer taking ownership
-When the car was painted they didn't finish the two tone paint job, so right now the side skirts are grey and the lower portion of the front and rear bumper are black, upon the buyers request I will have the skirts painted black, or I will have the lower portion of the bumpers painted grey
-They forgot to install the shadowline pieces that run along the top lower portion of the door on both sides.

MAINTENANCE JUST PERFORMED!!

-Winter wheels with Michelin Snows put on the car
-4 Wheel Alignment Performed
-R/F Xenon went out due to ballast failure, ballast replaced (6000k Xenons)

Current Mileage 202,063

A couple of issues with the car. There are two small tears in the driver's seat one on the lower outer bolster and one on the right side of the thigh support. They have not gotten any worse in the past three years and haven't bothered me.

All in all this is a great car and I wouldn't hesitate to drive it anywhere. It is one of the strongest running e34 ///M5's I have ever driven. I already have a weekend toy and I am buying an e46 ///M3 as a DD.

Asking $12,900 OBO, Motivated Seller...DO NOT MISS OUT ON THIS ONE, YOU WILL NOT FIND ANOTHER ONE LIKE IT FOR A LONG TIME IF EVER.

Beautiful car, very well maintained!! I'd buy it but, I have one in white in similar condition, except with 145 Kmiles. I'm curious if you have ever had to open the engine? I have not yet had that experience. Best -gil
