    E39 M5 Wanted

    I am on the lookout for an E39 M5, there are two pretty close to me on ebay that I wondered what peoples thoughts were on them or if they were owned by anyone on here, thanks. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-M5-E39-Le-Mans-Blue-Caramel-Extended-Leather-2001-114k-Full-MOT/183550603313?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2000-W-BMW-M5-E39-SILVERSTONE-BLUE-HERITAGE-LEATHER-LOW-MILES-LOW-OWNERS-M3-AMG/163405364353? _trkparms=aid%3D888007%26algo%3DDISC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20140328180637%26meid%3Dd25dc1e163054109862063c2d085b71f%26pid%3D100009%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D1%26sd%3D183550603313%26itm%3D163405364353&_trksid=p2047675.c100009.m1982

    2001 E39 M5 - SOLD

    I just got an insurance quote of £800 which I think is a bit much TBH. I might have to rethink my E39 M5 dream for a few years.

    If you kept the car what would you have done to it next?
  4. Fantastic write up, you put a lot of effort into this for others benefit and very appropriate thread title

    Blue E39 M5 on the M56

    It did look nice but it wasn't driven like a garage queen. To say he probably averaged close to 100mph on that stretch would not be far from the truth. It was like a mini M5 motorcade. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    Blue E39 M5 on the M56

    I was just travelling behind this car between J14 and the M6 junction J9. Lovely condition and the mot check says about 37k miles on the clock which is amazingly low. Registration ended in 0XXO. I was in the E34 M5. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    NW meet up 28th May.... Bull i' th' thorn

    Yes, Ashton-Under-Lyne. Was up in Glossop with my local club GVEC outside the Norfolk arms over Christmas for charity. Hold on, isn't that posh Liverpool? Not a chance!

    NW meet up 28th May.... Bull i' th' thorn

    I am up for this depending on the timing. My local car club just did a run to the Imperial war museum in Salford and they let the club cars park for free (saves £5), its free entry anyway. Just realised that there is no pub though. What about Southport? (lol 'gods waiting room'), or not....

    W5 MAG E39 M5 Ashton-Under-Lyne

    Spotted this E39 M5 a couple of weeks ago in Ashton-Under-Lyne. I checked the MOT history of W5 MAG and it looks like it does less than 1k miles per year, currently on approx 77k miles. Plenty of advisory's though.

    Rebuild? Partout? Scrap?

    You're kidding right? edit: Actually don't tell me and risk prolonging this line of conversation.
