Feelers

Ok so I had the master mechanic at my local BMW dealer do a full once over on my car to tell me anything that's wrong before I go to sell it. The final bill came out to $3,900.

New power steering pump
New rear bushings
New value cover gaskets
New power steering lines
New washer fluid reservoir
New vanos sensors

I've have bills for another 8k worth of work in the last year. Needs nothing right now.

Got it back today. After almost 9y she is ready to go. Just posting here first. I plan on getting a full detail in two weeks hopefully when it stops raining then it's autotrader time.

May 2003 build E39 M5 currently 99k miles. Based on my autotrader search starting at $22k but definitely willing to deal.

Carbon Black / Silverstone

Cheers and happy Friday.

Put it on m5board and be ready to sell. It will go in less than a month. Be firm on price, it is fair for mileage / condition. I got $18,500 for mine w. 115k miles in 2013

Edit: here was my for sale post over there:

Good luck with the sale but why are you getting rid of the m5 vs the E55? Edit: I see that is a C55 not E55

That's not mine to sell. =p

It's the others. =)

It's a pretty fun car to. Only made in 05, 06. 370 hp V8 in a little C. I know they did the monster C63 after this but it was heaverier also.

Where pretty dead even from a roll.

Pics a few years old but the only one on my iPad.
