Just inherited a 1991 M5

Hi Guys,

New to the forum here. I just inherited a black 1991 BMW M5 (e34) with 105,000 km on it. I need to know how much it would be worth on the open market. Can anyone help me out? It's in very good condition, just had the brakes serviced, rear struts replaced, new tires, passed emissions and safety test. Also never driven in the winter.

Any guidance you can provide is very much appreciated.

thanks!

Post up some pictures for our enjoyment and also to help other who are better informed than myself lend an opinion to your car's value.

As a point of reference, I came across this today.

I'll give you $3000 today. It's an old POS model, not very popular, I'll take it off your hands.

that one is seriously mint. Normal price range is $6000-20000, with 3.8l ones at the top. Nurburgringfahrwerkpaket ones are higher still.

Generally you see the 3.6L version somewhere in the 10-12k range depending on condition and maintenance history.

Yours is relatively low kms so that helps.

My only question is why sell it? If you don't owe anything on it just drive it and enjoy it, fantastic car. You'll likely get more than $10k worth of joy out of it in the next couple of years.

Nice car, maintenance is key with an M car especially an older car. I would keep it, but if it's not your style and you get a reasonable price then let it go. This is one of the few M cars I would like to own.

I would keep it as well, but if you just inherited it and dont care about cars or BMW's then sell it to someone that will appreciate it. Thats a sweet car.

If you're patient you'll get $16,000 (I'd list it for $17,500 so you've got some negotiation room) for that car given the mileage and condition it's in.

The value of E34 M5s has started to climb, so if you're able to hold on to it for a few years and keep it preserved you could end up doing a lot better. If you can't afford to maintain it properly, though, I'd sell it now.

Don't just list it on this forum: we've got a reputation for being cheap bastards around here.

I don't know if I should just cry now or get happy in the pants!

I'd agree with those saying keep it, and keep it in a good condition.
If you arent a car crazy guy, then sell it. And if TSI isn't buying it for $3000 then I'll give you




On a serious note though. List it with some car dealers (collectors) who really appreciate them. Not sure about the percentages or any costs. But this way it will sure go to someone that appreciates a nice E34 M model, and your asking price will probably be met as well.

I'd keep it tbh. Good luck, and a beautiful car.
