  9. E39 M5

    Hi guys this was for sale a we while ago, asking price of $30,000 , does anyone know what it sold for ? DaveO 2nd Gear Members 36 165 posts Gender:Male Name: DaveO Location:Auckland Car:2006 BMW M5 E60 Report post Posted February 20, 2014 (edited) Hi guys Up for sale is my fairly recently acquired E39 M5. Some of you might remember me looking for a car like this for months last year and, after searching and searching for the right one, I finally found this one up for sale in October last year. Nothing has changed since I have bought the car, I had the car checked over by a specialist before buying the car and was more than happy with his report of the car (4-5 months ago). I have replaced all four tyres with brand new FALKEN FK452 which still have PLENTY of tread. Some details: Year: 2000 Car: BMW M5 Kilometers: 131,000km Colour: Anthracite Metallic (have been told this is the only E39 M5 in NZ in this colour) Interior: Black leather / Silverstone leather seats. Shadow Titanium finish trim. Black dash (compared with new models having grey). Rego: V8M Options: Glass sunroof, rear electric curtain, heated front seats, 10 x speaker system, probably more which I forget. Other cool things: Because the car was built late in the year 2000, it has some 'facelift' components added from new, such as facelift headlights (xenon) with 'angel-eyes' and facelift tail-lights. Also quite interesting: I took the car to the bimmersport dyno day late last year shortly after buying it. The car performed amazingly well, making a very solid 235kw at the wheels, with an amazingly smooth linear power delivery. This was more kilowatts than the two other M5's which attended the same day. Because of this, and the overall condition, the car won 'Best V8' - something I am fairly proud of :-)! Service/Car history: The person I bought the car off lived in Singapore originally, and that is where he bought the car (back at 50,000km). He drove it over there, then because he loved it so much, imported it back to New Zealand when he moved back here. The car has a full service history over its lifetime, with all NZ servicing having been done by Jerry Clayton BMW. This includes all regular servicing and any required repairs. As well as this a recent Diff and Gearbox oil replacement was done, so the peace of mind is there knowing you can just hop in and drive this thing - with just regular oil services. Why on earth am I selling it you ask? - Well, as much as I really don't want to sell the car, I recently obtained a new client at work, who are based out in Waiuku. This means I am currently doing close to 35,000km of driving a year, which means unfortunately, the M5 has to go. I would hate to continue driving it this much and doing such large mileage on such a rare 'super sedan'. Anything wrong with the car? - The overall condition of the car, especially for a 14 year old vehicle, is in my opinion quite amazing. If i was to be super picky and pedantic (which I am), the only issues with the car are as follows: - It appears someone threw an egg at the back of the car at some stage, as there is a small circle of minorly damaged paint. Bastards. - Drivers seat has a very minor bit of damage along the stitching line, could easily be repaired by new owner, you probably won't even notice it unless I point it out - A few pixels here and there are sometimes missing from the head-unit. Again this is repairable quite easily (around $150) for the new owner if they wish. - A bit of the foam is showing by the back window from where the fabric just needs re-glueing, this is because the car has a rear electric curtain. - One of the floor matts is a bit worn out, car will also come with original floor mats anyway so not a major. - Even though it seems ALL M5's do it, when you first start the car it makes a bit of a noise from the engine (this is normal - but thought I'd list this anyway). - A bit of fading on the gearknob - general wear and tear. Overnight the car has been in my garage, no oil or fluid leaks that I know of, nothing has ever leaked onto the garage floor or such. The M5 notoriously uses oil, although my one seems to use very little, but I have topped it up a couple times over the last 10,000km. Anyway, I could rant on forever, but if you are truly interested it is best you come and arrange viewing the car. I am based out in Takanini, Auckland. Asking price: $30,000
  10. E39 M5 clutch life

    o ok, thats about as i thought, mine was replaced at 83,000kms along with flywheel but have a troll saying it trashed at those kms is odd.. but it is a 400hp car.
  11. E39 M5 clutch life

    Ok guys , from people that have owned one of these or worked on them how long on a clutch ... in kms ?, and does it not make economic sence to replace the flywheel at the same time, as if you do not do so, then any little gremilns that may have been present will almost certainly bite you, and you will have labour cost all over again.

  13. E39 M5 for sale ???

    It was not disclosed in fact the reason given for it being deregistered was, it was deregistered due to a legal inheritance fude dispute then re registered a year later.. that was a complete fabrication.. and this is from a LMVT !!! . then when just recently i asked him to confirm why it was deregisteed he said he couldnt find out why... not what he said a year earlier, then when i remind of what he first said he states thats what i was told by the dealer i bought it off. i have contacted them big dealership, they deny ever saying that.
  14. E39 M5 for sale ???

    The car drives very nice is in very good condition, but i was mislead as to the cars history by the dealer ,it was deregistered in 2008 due to an accident, the delaer told me it was deregistered due to a legal inheritance dispute feud, i had asked him before i bought the car did it have any accident history,
