    Hi All, As I'm reaching retirement age next year I think it's time to put my pride and joy up for sale. I'm lucky enough to be on my third M5 So have some idea what I'm talking about. Quick history - bought from another forum member in 2016. The work he did was monumental and is listed below. Since I have had the car all I have done is improved minor details, its in tiptop condition as you can see from the photos which are recent. All under side of car looks as clean as the top as the mechanics always mention when it goes for its MOT it's spot on. Service history is good but previous owner did own service for 5 years so isn't stamped but mileage didn't reach service interval timer. I have owned for around 3 years just had more detailing done again on car - wheels, interior, paint work etc. It’s a 2002 'facelift' in Lightwater Blue metallic. Apparently, this a rare colour for this year of manufacture. It has all the usual spec but has factory DSP pro stereo, split rear seats, and rear window power blind inc manual side rear blinds. Work completed by previous owner; Input shaft seal was changed and whilst the prop was out a prop-shaft centre bearing was installed along with various exhaust brackets that had rusted through Changed the thermostat, plugs, air filters, pollen filters. Coil pack covers polished and resprayed in high temperature paint Plenum removed and cleaned Cleaned PF housing New filter installed New hoses and separator valves installed Cleaned trumpets New power steering pipe New front and rear callipers Front disks shot blasted and skimmed Braided brake lines from Goodridge Genuine BMW Rocker Cover Gaskets and Seals - both banks, Oil Recover Solenoid seals - both sides, Sump Gasket and all new bolts New rear panel External trim replaced with new Interior trim polished Cam chain tensioner Exhaust support and the bracket support arms sent off for cleaning and powder coating New silencers installed The rear discs were removed, all cleaned up and new brake shoes were installed. Top Strut Mount bearings Struts Springs Thrust Arms Centre Tie Rod Tie Rod ends Stabiliser Arms Anti-roll bar bushes Anti-roll bar bush brackets All bolts and nuts were also replaced with brand new genuine BMW parts. Replaced all the suspension components Wheel bearings New disks and pads Upgraded to white LED angel eyes 92,000 miles on clock. I'm asking £18,000 to forum members only as I want her to go to an enthusiast like me. Cheers, Chopp
