1991 BMW M5 For Sale

My favorite generation of the BMW M5 is the late 80s E28.  That is, until I see an E39 roll menacingly by, then it’s definitely the E39.  Well, until I see something like this beautiful E34 pop up on eBay.  Damn, these are good looking cars.  The last of the hand-built M cars, they also carried over the M1/M5/M6 inline-6, displacing 3.5 liters.  Power was up to 315hp, and the clean early 90s styling make it one of the most subtle M cars.  It’s beautiful and fast, exemplified by this low-mileage version that showed up on eBay.

This really is one of the most gorgeous E34s I’ve seen.  Though I normally go for darker/subtle colors, I think the red is awesome.  It’s wearing some of the best BMW wheels out there; I’ve seen these look amazing on everything from E30 M3s to E38 7-series.  The Dinan chip and suspension are tasteful upgrades that make it a bit better without overdoing it.  To top off the total package, it only has 55k miles.  This total package comes at a price, however, and the Buy-It-Now is set at $20,750.  A lot of money for sure, as there are other E34 M5s out there for 1/4 of the price.  On the other hand, those cars probably suck.  There are E34 540i’s going around $15k, and considering the nature and condition of this car, it’s not exorbitant.  Hand-built, sexy 90s Teutonic speed for the price of a Honda Civic sounds good to me.

  1. If it’s been well looked after, I’d say $20k is actually a pretty good deal. These can go for absurd amounts of money when maintained properly and have seen plenty with asking prices in the high 20’s.

    And I agree, e34’s in red are very sexy! There is a 525i in town wearing red on tan leather that always makes my head turn!
