Clean 2000 BMW M5 for sale

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.

  1. I really like the interior and the options, especially the fold-down rear seat option which is something I must remember to add to my want list. I’m definitely not a fan of the wheels or the color . I agree that these are now in the affordable range. I may pick one up in the spring although I’m still lusting after a silver e34/e39 manual wagon.

  2. I have a bias here, this color with the stock wheels looks much better. I think these cars get a bad rap in terms of maintenence. I have had mine for a few months now and it has been great. Of course, I can hear something breaking as we speak.

  3. Define affordable? If its just the purchase price then yaa thats a lot of car for the money. If you want to talk about how much it will cost to keep that baby on the road over a few years forget it the cost will be silly high. The problem with that mileage is many of the components are reaching the end of their projected life cycle and it will no doubt need some major replacements and it will be VERY expensive.
