2000 Avus Blue M5

I'm selling my prized 2000 Avus Blue M5. I am the 4th owner, and I have all service records and history on the car totaling over $50k, all the way back to the original window sticker. It has been in California its whole life, and all previous owners were responsible adult enthusiasts. The car has a clean CarFax and has never been in any accidents.

The first owner went to Dinan at 19k miles and had the following parts installed:

• ECU tune
• S3 Suspension package consisting of front camber plates, front and rear sway bars, front and rear strut braces, Koni shocks, and dinan springs
• 3.45 LSD replacing the factory 3.15.

With its mileage, there are some imperfections to be expected, such as highway rock chips and areas where the paint has been touched up. I've always felt that they suit the car perfectly as it shows daily use.

In 2011 at around 140k miles, the engine suffered from the infamous secondary air issue, so the heads were removed and cleaned, and the engine was rebuilt using updated 2001+ rod bearings and piston rings. Every gasket, seal, timing chain guide, and even the chains themselves were replaced, along with everything else that would be included with an engine rebuild. I have a spreadsheet documenting all major services performed since new, as well as a large stack of receipts and documentation.

During my ownership starting July 2016 at 186k miles, I've completed the following at East Bay BMW in Pleasanton:

• Air filters
• Trunk struts
• Both drive belts
• 4 new tires
• Power steering fluid flushed
• Replace coolant expansion tank (preventatively)
• Brake fluid flushed
• Transmission & differential oil changed
• Replace all 4 Dinan/Koni adjustable shocks
• Replace front upper control arms with new bushings

Some highlights from previous owners:

• 6/2016 - Instrument cluster pixels repaired
• 7/2015 - Ignition switch & tumbler replaced
• 6/2015 - Thermostat
• 10/2013 - Clutch kit & rear main seal
• Complete history available as a PDF

I have also added the BavSound Control III iPhone/USB/Bluetooth integration, which works with the factory navigation including text display and steering wheel controls, making it super convenient to play from and charge any smartphone.

I'm still driving and enjoying the car every day. The current mileage is 194,800 and the only issue to speak of is that the driver's side power folding mirror "skips" when returning to the unfolded position. It still folds up and down perfectly though. The car has been nothing but 100% reliable during my ownership with no weird quirks, electrical issues, or anything else.

I am asking $18,500 or best offer. I have priced it high to weed out the lowballers. I am located in Northern California, and willing to assist with shipping worldwide. Please email me at mojocoggo @ me . com if there are any questions and I will be happy to answer them.
