Unless a collector is keeping this car, you are paying a premium for low miles on a stock car which will dissapate very quickly as you start driving it. And if you mod the car, I would guess collector value also goes down.
Plus, as pointed out, this car is out of warranty and out of maintenance. Not sure how many folks had NO warranty claims, I know I did, so you are pretty much going "bare" on running upgrades, warranty issues handled by BMW, as well as handling all required maintenance on your own.
I would think some premium would be more in line for a late model edition which has all the running upgrades put in from the factory.

I saw that exact car in the auction. It was at the BMW dealer in Fremont, which is about 15 miles from where I live. I didn't go there to look at that car specifically. I was there to check out a 335.
What I thought was odd was that the shiny plastic on the front of the center console was peeling off like they do on most E39s, even though this car only had 2,700 miles and was ostensibly an indoor "museum" car. It had kind of a slight "dusty" smell inside of it too. Otherwise, car looked great. Didn't see a single spec of road rash on the hood.
