2000 BMW M5

I think many of us know that in the world of performance coupes the Porsche 996TT is incredibly tough to beat on value. What about sedans? Where does the buyer in need of proper rear seating and a decent trunk look for performance value? The place to start almost certainly is the E39 M5. These also happen to be my personal favorite of the breed. With the E39 you get 400hp mated to a 6-speed manual transmission and a shape that seems almost perfectly proportioned for a sedan. These are aggressive appearing without being comically so and seem to have had all of the extra fat trimmed away. While later M5s would showcase improved performance the design has never appealed to me and the current models seem huge by comparison. Best of all, these days an E39 is about as reasonably priced as they likely will ever get. A really low-mileage example may command a decent premium, but for a driver-quality car they’re darn hard to beat. Here we have just such a driver-quality example: a Black on Black 2000 BMW M5, located in Arizona, with 56,610 miles on it.

By providing little description the seller has more or less left us to do our own homework on this one. There’s nothing flashy here; it’s a black on black M5 with reasonable mileage that appears straight and in pretty good shape. The wood-trim on the dash certainly wouldn’t be my first choice, especially given the sinister demeanor of a black M5, but it does help to break up a sea of monochrome with a little bit of elegance. Bidding remains fairly low at this point, sitting only at $12,100.01 with reserve unmet. Naturally, we expect that to rise some as driver-quality examples with this sort of mileage typically trade a little below $25K. That’s a heck of a lot of performance sedan for the money!

    Unfortunately the “experts” agree the later cars have less issues, primarily related to the VANOS system and perceived oil consumption. The 02-03 cars tend to demand a higher premium. However, if I could afford to board this stallion I would buy an early 2000 without hesitation.

    Look at the build date if you are concerned about the ring design that caused oil consumption at a slightly higher rate…anything built after I believe April or May of 2000 had the new ring design.
    I never experienced any of the issues that have been described with mine, in fact I still have the original instrument cluster after 15 years…only now did I see some pixels drop off.

    I have a 2000 that I’ve maintained to an extreme degree- I keep it perfect! This car has cost me a small fortune. Carbon build up in the secondary air, VANOS replacement, pixels in the dash, etc. I love the car, but its been very expensive to own. My vehicle was an early production unit and consumes quite a bit of oil as well. I still smile every single time I even glance at the car! They’re worth the maintenance, for sure!
