The E39 M5 is often considered the greatest sports sedan of all time, and I'll be sad to see it go; however, I just haven't driven the car enough in my year or so of ownership (~3k miles) to justify keeping it around. I'll always love these cars, but I've had a few too many BMWs and am looking to try something different. EXTERIOR: This M5 presents very well, with no dings or dents on the car whatsoever. The TiAg paint looks great (one of the most classic colors for the M5, in my opinion). There are some rock chips on the car, but beyond that, it's in pretty great shape. The car has a clean Carfax with zero accidents or damage reports (can provide a recent report upon request). The previous owner had the front and rear bumpers resprayed, so they look pretty much new. I had the right rear quarter resprayed to correct some flaws in the paint. No rust is present on the body whatsoever. The wheels are in fair shape. It's pretty much bone stock appearance-wise, with a couple of small tweaks I'll go into later in the ad. Please see the Imgur album for close-ups of the few cosmetic flaws. INTERIOR: It's in pretty good shape. All of the fancy Heritage Nappa leather (there's a lot) has been conditioned with Leatherique. The leather is super soft to the touch and looks awesome. The driver's bolster had some wear that I touched up. The steering wheel leather is soft and looks brand-new. The wood trim is in great shape too; the illuminated shift knob looks perfect even all these years later. The headliner looks perfect, with no sagging anywhere. The M Audio system sounds awesome. Everything works flawlessly, including the pixels in the gauge cluster and the navigation screen. All windows and the sunroof operate without issue. AC blows cold as well. I repaired the "twisted seat" issue and fitted brand-new OEM M5 floor mats. The windshield is original and still carries the engine break-in stickers from 2002, which is kind of cool. MECHANICALS: A lot of money has been spent on the car in the past 3,000 miles to ensure it drives like it should: - ENGINE: OE NGK spark plugs, OE Bosch mass air-flow (MAF) sensors, air filters, battery - DRIVETRAIN: OE clutch/flywheel kit, pilot bearing, transmission fluid - BRAKES: Rotors and pads all around - TIRES: New Michelin Pilot Sport 4S summer tires all around This M5 runs beautifully; it pulls hard to redline with the intoxicating naturally aspirated V8 sound. There was an intermittent issue involving a rough idle when cold-started, but it would run/idle fine as soon as the car started moving. I have not been able to track this down since no codes have appeared, and the car hasn't had this issue in the past month or so. The car shifts and rides well, with great grip thanks to the new set of PS4S tires. MODIFICATIONS / EXTRAS: - Supersprint Magnum mufflers (P/Ns 786846, 786826) & Supersprint non-resonated x-pipe (P/N 786813): Very aggressive but refined tone — exactly what I wanted. Sounds great on the outside at all times, but is quiet on the inside until you get high in the RPM range, at which point it opens up. No drone whatsoever. Original exhaust included (though you will need a truck to take it away). - Rear diffuser dipped in black: Minor visual tweak that I think makes the car look a lot nicer, especially in combination with the larger Supersprint tips. - Short shifter kit: Makes the throws pretty short. Not sure what brand it is, but it feels great! - Radar prewiring + laser jammers: There's an RJ11 connector wired for use with Valentine One, Uniden, and other detectors, plus laser jammers on the front of the car with gauge cluster integration (though I'm not sure how to use them). - Parrot Bluetooth device: Not sure what this is, but it is inoperable. Its presence doesn't affect anything. - TEC cupholder: A pretty rare add-on that gives the car an actual, usable cupholder. Hides away when not needed. - Stealth turn signal bulbs: Simple mod, just gets rid of the "egg yolk" look in the taillights. - 12mm spacers (pair): Not currently installed, but will include with the sale if I can find them. Comes with extended lugs. I'm asking $57,500 OBO. The car will come with one key, owner's manuals, and service records. Clean title in hand. Located in Tenafly, NJ 07670, which is right by Fort Lee. I know I'll regret selling it since these cars will only continue to appreciate, but I'm itching for something new. Trades considered — I am in the market for a D4 Audi S8, S212 Mercedes E63 AMG wagon, Aston Martin V8 Vantage 6MT, Jaguar F-Type V8, etc. May be open to other interesting cars as well. Can add cash up or down. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for looking!
