Just an FYI, I wouldn't pass judgement on what an e39 M5 is like based on an $8900 example. M5s that haven't been properly cared for feel like crap. It may be a fun test drive, but I'm guessing it will feel very loose, dated, beat up, and not overly quick due to a combination of slipping clutch, bad MAFs etc. I drove a few before picking the one I owned and the range of quality between well maintained ones and neglected cars was pretty staggering.
