    E39 M5 market

    Also to add to the other thoughts, where has the car been serviced? If by BMW or recognised indie it might be worth stating that too.
  2. If you don’t drive a really good modern car then they stand up,really well. However hop out of an F10 into an E39 then they do show their age.

    E60 M5 finally bought

    I have owned 2 e60 m5 and they both sounded like rough diesel motors at start up, in the words on my most trusted m mechanic, they all do.....

    My F10 M5 slightly modded

    I think that this is the first "pimped" F10 M5 that I have seen, and having read the description I was ready to dislike it. However, in the pictures I think it actually looks pretty cool, good job OP.

    F10 m5 options

    On the F10 M5 the heated seats are standard, as is the HUD. You can set the display that you want on the HUD, including the M view, which puts a rev counter and other things on the HUD, all set via the i-drive. The multi function seats are optional, casting my eye down the list quickly everything else looks standard.

    Non stroker E39 on eBay & autotrader

    I agree with you. This reads like a non specialist just writing stuff down without really understanding what he has got, for example most of the stuff he lists is standard on the car. I would go and take a look if you are interested and buy on condition and history. S

    E39 M5 in Modern Classics

    Agreed about the 130, for me, it works so much better as the 230/240, I think the shape is so much better. The one thing about the e39 in the magazine that annoys me is the super chav plate

    2005 M5 E60 ABS

    If it were me I would be into a BMW dealer to let them take a look - an E60 M5 with suspect brake problems sounds like a recipe for disaster.....

    Road Tax Fine

    Pay the fine. 1) you let somebody else fill the form out instead of doing it yourself 2) you have the money in your bank, you know it wasn't taken No way an appeal will win.

    New Wheeler Dealers

    I have just watched the first 2 episodes on catch up and have to say I really like it. I think Ant is good and I like the fact they are showing more of the mechanics stuff and taking the time to explain it.
  11. I was asked to be the wedding driver for a friend on New Year's Eve. I thought the car looked great, more importantly so did the bride.
  12. My twopence worth - in the foreseeable future the only cars that may see substantial value increases will be ultra low mileage, low owner, full history type cars. I think it will be years, if ever, if the more run of the mill cars saw large value rises. Unless yours is one of the former then you won't see your money back on a proper bare metal colour change for many years and even then it won't be original so likely slightly impaired valuewise.

    Choosing an E60 M5

    Having owned 2 of these I can say that, somewhat unsurprisingly, Clarkson hammed this up to make the point. For example, sat nav woman is very simple to switch off, the indicators do self cancel, nobody does all the idiotic set up stuff he did and so on.... But still, it makes entertaining tv.

    Strange vibration at motorway speed

    I had an e60 with similar sounding symptoms, turned out to be a rear wheel weight had fallen off.
