E60 M5 pricing guide?

Hi all, I've been looking for a M5 here but I'm having a difficult time pricing these out! Seems that they're all over the place in terms of price points with comparable options. Is there a rule of thumb with these or a pricing guide out there?

Thanks

I'm assuming you know about E39 prices? I think you've had a few?

Obviously a lot of variables, but the point is, E60's aren't much different, even though they're newer. I looked at a few E39's and E60's, and they were near the same price points at mileage and condition.

Well, I've notice E39's shot in value from the last few years, whereas E60's look to be shooting down. Are the E60's going up at all, holding firm, or continuing to plummet? I'd kick myself if I stepped back into a BMW M car right as it was shooting down, and from what I've been reading, part costs have nearly quadrupled for the S85.

I agree with your observation.
My opinion is that they've hit bottom. I think people and dealers have taken lowball offers in the last few years for whatever reason, but now it seems they're holding.
I don't know about quadrupled for parts - they've always been expensive, but I don't think they're that significantly more now than before. What parts were you referring to?

IIRC, the solenoids jumped astronomically. I'm seeing some from 11k and then some similarly optioned for 20k, so somewhat representative of the E39 market years back, but the expense to DIY one back to health seems at least twice as much as the e39's.

Ive had the sudden sickness to get into a V10 while the season is nice here in the PNW, however, the market is just all over the place. What price/options should I be expecting for the 15k +/- range? Obviously DIY'ing is in order for that range.

Hmm? Yes, I am on the M3forums.


EDIT: For some odd reason, my tapatalk and forum names don't line up, exactly. Never noticed this until now, not sure it matters/relevant much, though.

Why not go all out for an e31 V-12 850?

Great car, maybe down the road, but it doesn't have a 500hp engine in stock form. I.e. I want to enjoy the s85 while it's still relevant enough. The last crazy NA engine from BMW. I just have to own it.

To be honest i think the e60 bottomed out and went down too low, the price will only increase assuming it doesnt have normal car kms racked up on it
Its a very special car and suddenly people realised that about the e39 also

I know in australia there is not even 20 for sale at one time and prices appear to be rising

even in Canada there are many E60s for sale - especially the 2006 year. A lot were produced back in the day. Supply and demand. Almost everyone who wants one, already owns one. And, there is no true price discovery - prices ARE all over the map ranging from CAD$15K to $38K. There does seem to be some correlation with mileage.


I count about 30 2006 M5 / M6s for sale on kijiji.ca for all of Canada - that's about the equivalent of 300 for sale in the USA. M6s seem to be slightly more expensive for equivalent mileage, but that may just be the "dealer" factor. If I expand the search to be 2006 - 2010, there are about 65 M5s and M6s for sale. That's a lot. There are zero E39 M5s for sale in Canada right now on Kijiji.

Some data from the 2006s:
> 125K kms = CAD$20K or less.
90K - 125K kms = CAD$20K - $25K

There are outliers, probably based on regional supply / demand.
62K kms = CAD$38K (one car)
65.7K kms = CAD$32.8K (one car)
130K kms = CAD$30K (one car)


I paid around CAD$29K for mine with 105K kms but it had an Eisenmann Race exhaust, HR race springs, front and back HartGE spoiler / diffuser, and Radenergie R10 20 inch rims. Selling the exhaust (has the original) and the original wheels (kept the R10s of course) reduced the price by about CAD$4.5K - so $25K for 105K kms. Don't forget that in most regions there is a 13% tax on car sales (even used ones).

Here is the link to the kijiji search for 2006 M5s and M6s
