Here you have well looked after, totally OE e39 M5
I've owned the car since Dec 2014 - I bought it off a collector who had owned it for 10.5 years who at the age of 71 was selling off some of his cars. The car hadn't had a great deal of use in his final years of ownership so needed a good service etc but it came with all 3 keys, fsh/service books, the original purchase invoice and a big pile of receipts. In early 2015 I took it to an independent BMW specialist and asked him to go over the car and fix any faults, service it so it was spot on - Β£4200 I also had a BMW tow bar fitted (Β£1200) so I could fit a bike rack to carry my mountain bike. This is removable and I have all the original parts so you could totally remove it and put it back to standard if you want. In 2017 the car had another big service, some paintwork to fix a few blemishes, new discs, caliper service etc Β£3850 and in late 2019 had an inspection 2 service (the big one) Β£615 and in the past few weeks its had a new MOT, battery fitted and a new brake line. It has only ever had BMW parts fitted and I have receipts for all the work.
As you can see I have spent lots on the car as I planned to keep it long term but unfortunately I had a really bad mountain bike accident last year and I'm now in a wheelchair so need an automatic/adapted car - gutted as I love this car
So if you're after a well looked after genuine e39 M5 this could be for you - its not the cheapest but reflects the condition and money spent - its value is only going to go one way over the next few years
Any questions give me a call on 07973716002
A friend has offered to do any test rides - but this will be strictly only one person in the car with him
