I'm considering selling my 2003 540i M tech Package.

Please excuse the low-quality pics...
This car has been well maintained through Atto's BMW in Ottawa. Please feel free to check this claim with Otto's by quoting the VIN in the pics. The car has only 92,000 Km, clean history and is in GREAT shape. No modification, no dash lights, power rear sunshades and original paint.
I'm only the second owner of this car and have put only about 1000 km on it since purchase in early summer of this year (2010). You may ask why am I selling this car this soon. Well, I have another 540i M-package ... the difference is that this one is 6spd and sterling grey while the other one is auto and black. In addition, I was actually looking for an E39 M5 when I came across this car. 24 hrs later...two 540s were parked in my garage and no M5....
I desperately want the M5 and can't make the excuse of buying one to the boss before selling this car. The boss of course loves the automatic 540i so this one got to go if I wish to have the beast.
I maybe wrong (please correct me if I am) but only 1260 2003 M 540i were brought to North America. Only 60 made it to Canada.... out of the 60 only a handful came in 6spd. With the popular and much-loved metallic sterling grey, this car is hard to come buy especially with this kind of low mileage and condition.
The only 'bad" thing I'd like to mention is that the engine splash shield is broken (the black plastic piece under the M-bumper) which is common on all E-39s ... an easy cosmetic fix.
I'd like to sell the car for $21K...please let me know if there are any interests out there so that I may sell and begin my search for the M5.
Thank you and cheers!
