After enjoying my E39 M5 for about 4 years now, the kilometers are getting higher and higher, and parts start to fail. The engine is still strong, but at least once per month, something breaks, and I need to replace parts.
It's time to move on. I've been thinking about this a lot, and I can't find any replacement for the price I'm wanting to spend (€20k without mods), other than the E39 M5.
So I started looking for E39 M5's again, just like 4 years ago. Since I want to keep the next one again for about 4 years, it should be one with not too many kilometers, at most 125.000. I finally found one in Germany, not too far from where I live. 112.800 kms, 1999, all the facelift parts (bought and installed at dealer), carbon black, black interior, titanium trim, MKIV, 16/9, phone, Bilstein PSS9, Eisenmann exhausts, 19" OEM M6 rims. I went to check it out yesterday, did a test drive, and decided to buy it. Will be picking it up by the end of the week.
