I have a client looking for a very specific E39 M5.

Must be a 2002/2003, must be alpine white, must be under 90k miles and must be clean title. Not negotiable. Budget is high and looking for a clean, unmodified car. Show me what you have.

James' (Shep) Alpine M5 is pretty much the cleanest/nicest one in the region from what I've seen. If that's what you're looking for and he's willing to sell it, I wouldn't bother searching elsewhere. Surprised he's selling it though, I wonder what his next plans are. :evil

We've exchanged a couple PMs and it doesn't seem like he's quite ready to sell. However, it's a 2001, and I don't think that's going to work for my client.

(for those wondering why I'm specifically looking for an 02/03 - he has an AW '03 540i M-Sport that has been in their family since new and he wants the exact same car, but an M5.)

What do you do for work dude?

There was a late-2000 on CL recently that met these specs (AW, ~70k miles). Any reason it actually needs to be a 2002-2003?

Besides the personal preference of the guy with the money? No, not really (something about 2001 and earlier having rod bearing/other engine issues), but I digress - it's his money!

2001s don't have Rod Bearing/ring issues like the 2000s and earlier do. Inform your client properly ;) 2001s are identical to 2002-2003 and later except some didn't get the updated Navigation unit and of course options can vary on the 2001s where-as the 2002s and later pretty much came as they were sold.

Doesn't really meet your requirements, but I think the price fairly reflects that, and it is clean looking in the photos - http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/cto/5537334550.html

Ok, old thread bump, but I've got someone else looking for an E39 M5. 2001+ preferred. Must be clean title. Must be alpine white, lemans blue or jet black/carbon black. Please no other colors.

Budget depends on the car, but is very flexible.

Shep, have you sold your car yet?

Austin
