View Full Version : 5 Series 2001 m5 - 130km - $19,000.00

As much as it saddens me, I am selling my M5 that I have owned for a year. We have a newborn and it is becoming tricky justifying in keeping the car. I will NOT be purchasing a minivan in the M5's absence - do not worry. I am in NO hurry to sell, and please no trades, low ball offers. If you have a comment please feel free to email, call and we can discuss and come take a look.

Obviously the car does not show as a 10/10, but for the eleven years it has been driven it has been well cared for. The Caramel interior is showing its age, but there are zero rips and tears. The Exterior has zero rust, but minor surface scratches. Paint is holding strong and the clear is amazing!

It was in Mississauga, Torbram/Derry. Exact colour combo just like yours!

yea, not I....

This car is soo tempting. I'll keep watch on this thread in case the price drops.

Question: Can you clarify if this car has/has not been driven in the winter. You say that this has not seen winter. However, you have winter wheels/tires available and you also show a bunch of service work done through last winter.

Why hello,

I myself did not drive this car last winter. I did however purchase winter tires (E60 M5 reps) to mount while the car sat in my garage. Over the winter I purchased an OBD II scanner and scanned the car as shortly after I purchased kept throwing the car into error - hence the sensors and parts I replaced it over the winter. Every time I would replace a part it would clear said code and the others would remain. Took a while of me diagnosing to pin point each once, but so far zero electronic gremlins have come back.

I am driving this car everyday as my daily commute is short, but the price will not be coming down for such a rare M5 with this color combo!

Thanks for looking

Forgot to mention that I replaced The drivers Side fog bulb in June, and have waiting four Bosch O2 sensors to go in as scheduled maintainence.

Willing to negotiate a price with a potential enthusiast,but so far I have turned down $15K and a trade + cash for an 01 A6
