So Kevin it's up to $34 now. What's your max do you think. That M5 is almost perfect.

Yeah - I did bid earlier (just for fun really - it has gone much higher now).
It has 7 minutes to go and is at $36,500 ...... We'll see....

That much $$$ for a car I will actually put miles on - ummm.....

It's only money

And it may be the perfect mileage: not so low it's heartbreaking to add more on; not so high, you'll use it up quickly.

Just too much $$ for what I was wanting... I entered a bid on the computer but did not pull the trigger.... and that is ok.

I really do miss that car sometimes
Is there some filter applied to that photo? It looks like it was taken in the 1970s.

Hey Kevin here is yet another one.

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/2000-bmw-m5-24/

Same interior as mine but rare for 2000 AVUS!!

Bat cannot seem to go a week without at least 2 M5's.

I like the fittment of the wider rear rims on the front.
