I love the plate

Maybe two were bought - as in the guy in the US that bought two E39 M5's - one to drive  & the other to keep unused - the one that sold a week or two back.

I thought i had a NZ autocar somewhere that said there were 4 sold new in NZ, not that it matters, still a great car and i hope it sells for the asking price, but he might be a bit optimistic. There was one on a yard in Hamilton a while ago for similar money, was on trade me for over a year. That grey is the only other colour i would own one in, i still prefer mine though!

I used to see a purple one doing school runs in Mt Eden a few years ago now.

You might be right but the previous owner who has a close relationship with Auckland City BMW was adamant only two were sold.

I bought it on the basis on the understanding there are only two NZ New examples :)

1 of 2, or 1 of 4, still rare as heck and makes little to no difference in the grand scheme of things imo. GLWS

Possibly mine before i got it, its Interlagos blue but my wife swears its purple and i have to concede it looks purpleish in the right light. I got it from a dealer in Mt Eden where it had been traded on a Landcruiser, which is much more sensible for school runs in Mt Eden!!

You have to love the Touring to pay that price. That's F10 M5 money and twice the price of an E60 M5 sedan.

I looked at the black one last year for sale. 105k km sold through dealer for $45 and then privately a year later for less than $40. 

Amazing car but hard to sell unless someone really wants it. AMG or RS6 wagon if you want a daily driver. M5 V10 if you live near a tunnel! The sound is to die for.

Absolutely mate - it's a very different proposition. This has collector status due to it's rarity whereas the F10 is an ultimate daily. 

You only need to look at the E34 touring vs. sedan prices today to see where these will likely head.

Bang on. The black one was also a UK import - nothing wrong with that however this does half the mileage, comes with full NZ history (plus hard wired radar and CIC system for the geeks!).

Not sure the  NZ vs import history is as big a deal as we all make it out to be. You can can get full BMW service history in any car now, likewise any crash history etc. The low KMs is definitely nice and I like the grey, (it would match one of my other BMWs). As for the hard wired radar and CIC ; mods which have no real resale value in my opinion, especially on a collectors car.

those who haven't; check out the top gear episode on the M5 Touring. Got to love powerful wagons!

If asking price is met I'll also include an Eventuri intake worth $2,500.

Imports have gone up though. 7 x M5 Station Wagon from UK, 1 x M5 Station Wagon from Japan.

However, two of those are listed with 4,400cc engine with 2012 and 2014 build dates so looks like some clown can't tell the difference between a sedan and a station wagon. So realisically it is now 6 x M5 Wagon.

Still not that far from being rocking horse poo though.
