After 10 years of happy ownership I am reluctantly putting my M5 up for sale. We are moving out of town to where the roads are not as well maintained. I do not want to beat up my car after taking care of it for so many years
Please contact me if you or anyone you know might be interested. I would like it to go one to someone who know the car and will appreciate its history.
I am working of getting many pictures posted to a share site
A bit about the car:
It is one of the 22 USA spec cars that came with the black buffalo hide interior.
Except for a newer clutch the engine, trans and diff are original. It does have new driveshaft and half-shafts
Many small parts and trim pieces have been replaced to improve the appearance. It has a complete tool kit of course. I have many other spare parts such as brake pads, original BMW cloth seat covers (I think they sold them to throw over your seats to protect the leather if you got dirty while you were out) and stock mud flaps (never installed, great for protecting the body but just to ugly)
Major changes from stock:
1) Euro Headlight conversion (I still have the original lights and grills)
2) Euro headers installed and new exhaust, including cats
3) Limited edition Momo steering wheel released in the late 80’s for the M5/M6 (still have stock wheel)
4) 540 rear brake conversion
5) 17” wheels w/ Goodyear GS-D3 (Original wheels stored safely in garage)
6) J. Conforti chip upgrade
Previous owner installed Dinan suspension (springs, shocks, sway bars) cam gear and K&N air filter. I do have all the Stock suspension parts and air box
Finally, the rarest of the rare, I have a SPARE ECU (with stock chip and a Dinan chip)
I am told the stock wheels and ECU are worth well over $2000, but I want everything to go with the car.
A friend of my wife who works at BMW tells me that their heritage group says that two blk/blk e28 M5’s have sold in the last 16 months for around $20K in California
I would think, given the value of all the spare parts that somewhere up towards the high teens would be very reasonable.
I will welcome any input
