2000 BMW M5

The E39 M5. What’s not to love about this awesome sedan? I can think of few cars that tick all of the right boxes for me. It’s German, first and foremost. It’s got plenty of power in its reserves. It has a manual transmission. And it has an extra pair of doors and usable carrying capacity for the times when you suddenly need it. Make no mistake, now is the time to jump on one of these cars, as they are certain to start trending upward a bit in the price department. Let’s take a look at an M5 in a rare color combination for sale in California.

Afternoon Accessories: Korman Schnitzer 2002 Widebody Kit

509

Some of the coolest 2002s were the Schnitzer wide body race cars run in the 1960s and 1970s. Schnitzer started as a small race team but ultimately won the German touring car championship in a 2002ti. The widebody 2002 has been the signature of Schnitzer and they look perfect hunkered down low over gold BBS magnesium wheels. If you’re looking to build a crazy 2002, look no further:

Hi I am selling a new Korman Fiberglass Schnitzer Widebody Kit. I never used it and it has never been molded to a car. All I did was clamp it up to see how it looked and it looked good.It is not bolt on product. You can find details at Korman Autoworks. This is a big package, 23x28x69 inches. Its a good deal, half price. I paid 800 for this kit. IF YOU WOULD LIKE IT SHIPPED YOU CAN ARRANGE SHIPPING.

With a few days to go, bidding is low on this new set of fiberglass flares. Anyone who has done any fiberglass work will tell you that buying the flares is just the tip of the iceberg, but none-the-less this is a neat setup for a cool ’02 build on a budget.

Bulgarian 1984 BMW 520i

Screen Shot 2013-10-21 at 7.27.04 PM

Editor Paul has recently returned from some time in Europe, and beyond his fantastic photos of forbidden fruit has brought back some entertaining ideas regarding importation. While importing a car from Bulgaria may sound like a sideplot in a Borat movie and/or Top Gear segment, there is no question that the Euro look is highly regarded and that E28 fanatics are ready to cough up plenty of money to buy imports or convert US-spec models. Even with shipping, this 520i would probably end up cheaper than converting a US car and would lend an extra dose of credence. You could sell it to someone who wants to restore and swap it, or you could do that yourself. Hard to say how you’d get a solid PPI by anyone who spoke English let along a real mechanic, but hey – small bumpers!

He left out “spare wheel held in the trunk somehow with something!”

This would put my E28-purchasing story (flight to Tennessee and buying a yet-unseen-in-person E28 on the spot only to drive it back to Arizona and immediately 24 hours straight with my brother) to shame. I can already hear it: “I shipped this Euro straight from Bulgaria. Swapped the mechanicals of my big-bumpered 535i’s turbo’d M30 and some Alpina wheels on it.” So what if the tertiary logistics would end up making it a little more expensive in time, money, and confusion; importing is cool.

1995 BMW M3 Lightweight

Better, faster, lighter. From competitive running to software, this is a mantra many strive after. And so it goes with motorsport, as teams seeking to shave a few seconds off a lap time instantly consider what could be left out of the equation in the constant drive to add lightness. As the second generation M3 got into full swing, BMW introduced a harder edged version of the fast 3er, dubbed the M3 Lightweight. With under 100 sold in the US, these are not for the everyday club racer, as many of them have been stashed away before the miles piled on. This M3 Lightweight for sale in California is one such car, having survived four owners and zero track use.

Not very often does a low-production, race-bred, collectible come along at an affordable price. With approximately 120 produced for the world and only 85 coming to the U.S., it is no wonder these cars are becoming so sought after.

History of the Lightweight:

The 1995 M3 Lightweight (BMW NA model code 9520) was produced between 8/95 through 10/95. A small quantity of these M3 LTWs were produced, aimed at the performance purist and/or active competitor. This street-legal model (as delivered to the dealership) eliminated several comfort and convenience items for weight reduction purposes, which were normally found on standard M3 models. The M3 lightweight came with several performance upgrades based on the European M3 GT homologation series for worldwide GT racing.

2001 BMW 740iL

While the Mercedes-Benz S class may be the standard bearer for German executive sedans, the BMW 7 series has always been the choice for the more sporting individual, even if the owner is spending most of his time in the back seat. In 2001, as the public learned of the radical design departure of the upcoming 2002 7 series, buyers started a rush to buy what would be the last of the conservatively styled 7 series sedans. It’s rare that a car nearing the end of the production cycle would see a spike in sales, but that’s exactly what happened in the case of the E38 7 series. This 740iL has the M sport package and has clocked just over 60,000 miles.

You know what’s embarrassing when you’re considered a motoring enthusiast? Running out of gas. Like showing up to a marathon barefoot, nothing says poor planning like seeing someone walking the shoulder of the highway with an improvised gas container. However, not only is it in poor taste in Germany, it’s downright against the law to run out of gas on the Autobahn. Not to worry, BMW fans, because the folks at Alpina have a solution for you….or they did, many years ago. Here’s an Alpina additional fuel tank for sale on Ebay:

1997 BMW M3

There’s little chance I’d sell my R53 Cooper S, mainly because the little bugger has grown on me so much, but I’m constantly thinking this generation of the hot 3 series would be a nice accompaniment to the mighty MINI. This red M3 is also a California car and has traveled over a quarter million miles, proving that these high performance BMWs offer more than just a pretty face and exhilarating driving experience.

Full owner’s manual booklet and extra keys and BMW Intro Audio cassette tape. registration paid thru February 2014; 252,400 highway miles (well maintained- oil changes every 5K miles with Mobil 1).

Exterior is in good condition but does have a couple small door dings and the front spoiler and hood do have quite a few rock chips (see pictures). The clear coat is flaking on the top of the side mirrors and the top left of the rear bumper. The interior is in good condition, the front drivers seat has one small tear in the seat bottom, the passenger seat is in very good condition, and a back seat that is also in very good condition.

The car drives great down the road, tight and smooth.

Tuner Tuesday Part 2: 2009 BMW M5 6 Speed Dinan

509

This 2009 BMW M5 isn’t really a full Dinan model, but rather a desirable car which has undergone some factory-approved Dinan modifications. Purists rejoiced when the manual option was re-added to the M5, but few seem to come up for sale. This particular model looks just about showroom fresh in metallic black hearkening back to it’s Grandfather E28. But what resides under the hood of this monster is decidedly not from an E28; with nearly double the cylinders and double the horsepower, these M5s will and can take on just about anything you can bring to it. The manual replaces the jerky-at-low-speeds and harsh shifting (not to mention expensive to service) SMG transmission, making the black interior that much more inviting:

To me these cars still seem like they just arrived on the market, so it’s amazing to me that they’re priced below $40,000 now. For mid-range 3 series money, this is a lot more car and a lot more special than run of the mill 3er. If you really want to announce your presence in the office park, the Dinan exhaust will do that quite nicely for you. Long term the 6 speed manual is the option I’d choose. This car looks well kept and dealer serviced, so there shouldn’t be any surprises of any sort except for the face on that Porsche 911 Turbo driver as you out accelerate them.…

2002 BMW M3

509

If there’s one thing that I really love it’s rare colors of already unique cars. I’m not even sure why the rare colors appeal to me so much, but I just love seeing neat German rides in something other than silver, white or black. In the case of the E46 M3, that means my favorite by far is Phoenix Yellow, but that’s not the most rare color on E46 M3s. No, there were some individuals who decided that the color pallet offered by BMW just wasn’t enough; this particular M3 was specified by the owner in the E36 shade of Estoril Blue. Original idea? Well, not really, but boy the results are good. Take a look at this Easter Egg:

Why you would go through the effort of buying the beautiful BBS CSL 19″ wheels and painting them dirty is beyond me, but like so many other things, it’s not all about me. I’d immediately refinish those gems back to the original silver as I think it would fit the car a little better. This car was mildly modified with exhaust and some blackouts, and looks to have Alcantara seats. Luckily for my bank account, it also has the SMG transmission which rules it out of ownership for me, but if you’re interested in a track ride this could be a good deal. At $17,500 with 77,000 miles it seems pretty appropriately priced and would set you apart from the rest of the E46 M3 crowd!…
