2003 Sterling Gray Metallic, Evolve tuned, 131k, San Francisco $20,000

2003 Sterling Gray Metallic M5
131,xxx miles
423 hp at 381 lb/ft
$20,000

After a three-year search, I purchased this car from a fellow board member. With much regret, though, I am selling my beloved 2003 Sterling Gray Metallic M5. I need to move onto something that can handle building supplies as I renovate our house this summer. She was taken care of by the previous owner and I spoiled her even more. No burnouts, no track days. Even after two years of ownership, I still smile every time I turn her over. The throttle response is incredible, pulls like a champ, and sounds fantastic. All maintenance is up-to-date.
NOTE TO THOSE IN CALIFORNIA: The Evolve headers come from England and do not have an Executive Order number required by CARB, so take this into consideration if you want to pass CA smog/emissions. You’ll need a work around.

Okay, here we go.

Evolve Stage 2 Header Power Tune

Supersprint X-pipe, Vibrant mufflers

I been in the car multiple times. The seats are comfortable. It is a nice car that pulls harder than my stock M5.

They sit a little lower than the stock seats; with that said they are surprisingly comfortable. My longest road trip with it was 650 miles only stopping for gas and had no complaints. Side bolsters show a little wear. Attached is an older pic.
