2003 BMW M5

scirocco_16_1

After a three year hiatus, the sport sedan market forced BMWs hand at putting out the E39 M5…and for that we thank you. Thought by many to be one of the greatest saloon cars ever produced, I’m inclined to agree. With the sound of a muscle car, handling of a Porsche, and the acceleration of a bullet, the M5 just plain did everything right. You may be thinking, how can thes cars still he so revered almost a decade later? The answer to that is an easy one…simplicity.

No, I’m not stuttering, it’s the simplicity of the E39 that makes it such a great car, allow me to explain. With each successive generation of M5, BMW is adding more and more personalization, technology, and gadgetry in order to tailor the car to the driver. However, in many ways these systems, and iDrive menus do the exact opposite, creating a buffer between the driver and the car. The E39 had two settings, M, and not M, that’s it. The beauty in this is, like previous M generations, you drove the car as it was…and isn’t that 99% of the fun?

This stunning one owner M5 for sale in New York is a great way to get back to basics.

I am the original owner of the vehicle and have the window sticker and all service records since new. The car is completely stock with no after-market modifications. Other than tires and replacement batteries, all service, maintenance and repairs have been performed by authorized BMW dealers (BMW of Greenwich Ct and BMW of Ridgefield CT). Oil and fluid changes as well as other maintenance items were performed under “Old School” guidelines more frequently than that prescribed by BMW. The “Service Engine Soon” light is currently illuminated. According to BMW of Ridgefield, the fault code is for carbon build up in the secondary air system. Although the car has some minor dings, blemishes and a crack in the chin spoiler, it has never had any paintwork (other than minor touch ups) or been in accident. The interior is in immaculate condition. Non-Smoker. Clean vehicle history report. Features include :Wide-screen MKIV DVD Navigation System with updated DVD Navigation Disc, 60/40 Split Fold Rear Seat with Ski Bag,  Park Distance Control, Heated Front Seats, Alcantara Headliner, Homelink Universal Garage Door Opener, Xenon Headlamps with Angel Eyes, Power Sliding Moon-roof.

Finished in Silver over black, this meticulously maintained M5 is one of the nicest examples I’ve seen in a while. In true bimmer enthusiast fashion, this car was meticulously kept, and maintained over it’s 10 year life. Having only traveled 85K miles, this car still has a ton of life left in it. With an asking price of $18,900 this car is priced right where it should be, and well below other examples I’ve seen with similar history. I’m guessing that to the right buyer, the seller would let this beauty go for a song in the $17,500 area, and that’s a car well bought.

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.

Low-mileage BMW Z8 for sale, almost as expensive as new!

The Z8 is the fastest car I’ve ever driven. Such superlatives create a special place in one’s heart, and this Bond car is no exception. While it doesn’t get mentioned much these days, it was a true beast when it came out and can still cause uncontrollable laughter as it chirps the tires in 3rd gear and takes off with the wonderful roar of the late, great S62. Styling is tame in the face of ubiquitous flame-surfacing, but refreshingly classic thanks to aping the general design of the incredible 507. The back end is quite simply my favorite stern of any car, with perfect roadster proportions with aggression and class to match its mechanicals. Today’s example has a museum-worthy 15k miles, but a museum would be such a waste of that glorious wide-open sound.

Nothing too interesting from the seller, but the numbers tell the story. Other examples with reasonable miles can be had for under $75k, but this Z8’s lack of use demands special treatment in the form of $114k. That’s a mere 12% depreciation from the original MSRP of $130k, and soon enough that number should change to appreciation. Appreciation is a fitting word here, of both the form of a fantastic BMW and my thanks for having the opportunity to wring one out one sunny afternoon!

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.
