It’s coming, folks: the days of affordable E39 M5s are nearing. Yes, the maintenance costs will keep you forking out the dough, but with prices of what many consider to be the high water mark of modern BMWs reaching into the low-to-mid teens, I’m already salivating at the thought of adolescent dreams coming true.
I’ve never been a huge fan of the M6 wheels, probably attributable to a lack of enthusiasm about the M6 in general and thinking that it looks too modern when put on older Bimmers, but I must admit that they look pretty sleek here. The sky blue is so pastel it’s gotta be cool, so this clean package ends up putting some pieces together I wouldn’t have come to myself and ends up looking great. At 128k miles, it’s not one of the cream puffs we post, but it is remarkably clean all things considered, and the price is right at a $15k buy-it-now. We are entering a golden age, friends, and the supercars that seemed so recent are getting old enough to be attainable.
