2001 BMW M5

Produced to go head to head with the E55 AMGs in 1999, the E39 M5 hit North America for model year 2000. Compared to previous generations, the E39 M5 boasted the high strung S62 V8 engine which displaced 4.9 liters and made 394 bhp. In contrast to the M62 V8, the S62 offered a higher redline, variable intake and exhaust valve timing, and individual throttle bodies. All of these things made for a fast revving beast of an engine that was the benchmark that all other sport sedans would be measured against.

This Titanium Silver Metallic over black leather M5 for sale in Fairfax Station, VA represents the quintessential sports sedan of its generation.

You are viewing a CARFAX CERTIFIED 2001 BMW M5 SEDAN / 87535 MILES / 6 SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION / GPS NAVIGATION / FULL LEATHER / LUXURY TRIM / HEATED SEATS / SKI BAG / BI-XENON HEADLIGHTS / ENHANCED PREMIUM SOUND.  The color combination on this vehicle is: Interior-Black Boston Leather.  Exterior-Titanium Silver Metallic.  This vehicle is free of any dings, dents, scratches, parking lot scuffs-as the photographs will show.  This vehicle includes a full and complete owners manuals kit.  With over 23 years in highline automobile sales and service, you are insured integrity.

As a licensed Virginia dealer, I will gladly provide the buyer with a set of temporary tags and registeration.  Located just outside of Washington D.C, I will be glad to provide transpotation to any of our local airports.  I also can provide door to door vehicle delivery services.

In my eyes, this is the best M5 to own, with 80bhp more than the E34, and the V8 growl, and stunning good looks, these are the cream of the M5 crop. The E39 is also the last generation of a pure driving M5, as the E60 brought technology overload, which in my eyes takes away from the driving experience. At $18,700 this M5 is priced right out of the pages of NADA, and right along where the market has been. With reasonably low miles, and in seemingly pristine condition, this is a great buy on an epic sports sedan.

  1. After living with an E39 for years, I’m biased also. An E39 M5 would make an amazing daily driver (except when it snowed, of course). While the colors are nearly perfect for low-key rapid transit.

    Without knowing anything about it’s history, at nearly 90K miles, I’d be a bit nervous about how soon the big-ticket maintenance and repair items would ensue. You’d want to find out as much as possible about how it’s been treated over the last 10 years.

  2. My brother owns an ’01 M5 with 102k on the clock. These are fantastic driver’s cars and with good maintenance habits, they are quite reliable. A quick check of the M5 board can tell you all about the potential failure points and give you an idea of what to keep in mind.

    If the service history is there and the PPI checks out, I wouldn’t be worried about buying this car. Wish I could, but it’s just not in the cards right now.
