1993 BMW M5


Of all of the BMW M cars, the E34 M5 is one of the most sublime. Not as hard edged as the E30 M3 yet not as brutal as its E39 M5 successor. This car was a classic businessman’s express that combined speed, handling and styling that did little to advertise the performance bent of this sedan. Similar to other German sedans, certain colors such as black, silver and white are quite common. This M5 for sale in New Jersey, however, wears its rare, original shade of Laguna Green.

Compression test prior to purchase showed 180, 180, 170, 180, 180, 180.

This is about as cool as US Spec M5’s get. Car is Lagoon Green/Black sport leather interior. This car is 1 of 8 ever made in the US in this color. Total world wide production of E34 Lagoon Green was 22 cars. The car has Black Birdseye Maple wood grain. The door panels show zero delamination. The Black headliner is tight and looks great (slightly getting loose underneath the visors). Car currently has 174k miles, and feels like a brand new car still.

About $9,000 to $14,000 buys you an E34 M5 in good nick these days. One of the last E34 M5’s we featured was a 1991 model that sold for just a shade under $10,000. I’d suspect an opening bid closer to that number might spark a bit more interest. While this car is newer and is painted in a rare hue, I’d suspect somewhere between $10,000 and $12,000 is realistic territory for this one.

  1. on its face it looks like a very nice E34….
    and there is a list of items that were addressed….but there is no real mention of the routine maintenance that these cars really need…..174k on the odo is not something to really fret if this car has records…
    the Holy Grail though is a 93 Euro and there is one for sale in my area…w/119k on the odo…Daytona Violet (another rare color) w/the Hurricane Clothe interior….
    am curious for what this will trade for!

  2. I really like this car but the seller could’ve done themselves a real favor and had the seats taken care of before sale. What a great color combo!
