1999 BMW M5 - Huge history folder, simply exemplary throughout.
Finished in Avus Blue metallic with a Le Mans Blue leather interior, this M5 is presented in the classic colour combination, is to be found in simply astonishing condition throughout, and accompanied by impeccable service records and detailed history folder.
Supplied new by Specialist Cars BMW in Hertfordshire who proceeded to look after the car for the first 15 years of its life, T115 GRO was then serviced by two further BMW main dealers and well reputed BMW specialist in Milton Keynes. Last serviced in April 2021, this M5 has also recently had a full Vanos overhaul along with front brake discs and pads all around less than 3000 miles ago.
Fitted with a custom built stainless steel exhaust system by Deutsche Tech in November 2020, the exhaust note is now an intoxicating V8 rumble similar to Mercedes AMG’s of the same era, rather than the often raspy noise emitted from the standard thin steel systems.
Additional upgrades to this M5 have been subtle and tasteful, designed to modernise the car but not detract from its original form. The Dynavin head unit upgrade provides DAB, Bluetooth phone, multiple format audio playback, rear reversing camera, navigation and TV tuner, and remains compatible with the steering controls. The standard black bumper and side strips have been colour coded along with the interior chrome trim strips replaced with piano black inserts, both changes adding a stylish and fresh modern look to the vehicle. Drivers pedals are alloy AC Schnitzer.
Factory equipment includes double glazing, climate comfort windscreen, Alcantara headlining, electric heated memory seats, xenon headlights, dual climate control and immaculate 18’’ Style 65 alloys wheels wearing Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tyres that have covered just a few hundred miles
Having covered just 105,000 miles in 22 years, the majority of that time has been with just three BMW enthusiast owners. With five previous owners in total, the accompanying history folder not only details the exemplary servicing, but also gives a clear indication of the calibre of the previous owners.
E39 BMW M5’s in such astonishing condition are becoming increasingly rare. Examples such as this that also boast a detailed service history, a record of previous ownership showing clear provenance, and recent subtle and stylish upgrades certainly make this M5 one of the finest available.
