West Coast E28 M5 for sale blk/blk USA model

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 80s 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 M5s 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

Thanks,

Chuck

No comments????

After a 120 looks I was expecting at least one comment that I am expecting to much for the car or someone asking if I would sell the ECU seperately. I may have to resort to posting it on roadfly

We will see.....

I am hoping the spare ECU, extra set of wheels, MOMO steering, Euro headers and headlights would boost the price. Not to mention the spare brake pads, door gaskets and even four replacement M seat badges!

If not I can put the stock wheels back on, take everything else off and sell the car for less and sell all the bits seperately. Naturally would rather not go this way.

Not sure of the value of the stock springs and sway bars?????

Luckly I am not in a rush, up until we move to the boon-docks

More pictures

Finally got some pictures of the interior posted.

Would be interested to hear from anyone who knows something about the Momo steering wheel. I was told there made in the mid 80's for the M5 and M6 and there were not many made.

The MOMO wheel definitely looks '80s, and the Motorsport stripes would indicate it was a special product for the ///M cars. Have you had it off the car and looked under the trim? MOMO usually engraved the manufactire month/year on the steel spokes of the weel, and may also have engraved a model name/number.

Where do you get the 22 number from? I've seen all sorts of numbers for US (not Canadian) blk/blk ranging from 15 to 30. A guy on Mye28.com apparently searched the VIN records and came up with 29.

The car looks great, though the colour on the valve cover isn't my bag. I don't see any reason why you shouldn't get high teens for it with the spares you're offering - except, maybe, the current economy seems to have caused the market for BMWs of this era to tank.

The steering wheel has not been off for ten year, it probably does have some I.D. on the back

I have heard a lot of numbers also. The 22 came from a IT guy at work who has a brother that works for BMW USA in their IT department. Story goes he ran a query on their database for USA VINs with the black interior. I naturally can not vouch for it but it should be simple. Not sure why BMW keeps it such a secret.

I asked a BMW heritage fellow and he flat said they do not disclose such information. Might be fallout from the class-action suit aginst them for bringing in to many E28 M5's

Maybe they are afraid they will get sued by someone who burned themselves on the black seats on a hot day. I can see it now...
