How serious are you?

m5board dot com has some very nice examples. If you are smart, you'll really take the time to understand CONDITION and price, .... and expand your search distance. You have a much higher chance of finding a jewel at an out of the way location.

Condition, color first.
Price second
location third

IMO

A

Agreed. M5Board has a bunch of E39 M5's for sale. I would know because I was lucky enough to just buy one!

What's your time frame? I'll probably sell Greta after the first of the year.

She will be priced at 25K. I have all the maintenance records/preventative maintenance work/modifications since she was born. I am the third owner and am only thinking of selling because of the upcoming M4.

You can look at some shots of her from a recent photo shoot. I will be adding updated pictures of interior later. She is going in this week to replace both mirrors (motor issues), rear door lock, hand brake, front door seal, seat twist repairs, and new Powerflex upper and lower control arm bushings.

As you can see, I keep her preventative maintenance up to date. She is NOT a garage queen. She is my daily driver and I drive her the way BMW's are meant to be driven.

She will also be going in for a front splitter paint/install along with bumper/hood re-paint. She hasn't had a re-spray in 4 years and is due.

If you have any further questions, you can email me at gbpackerfan1963 at me dot com
