I would be hesitant on that bid. The write-up on the car is shaky, to say the least. They can't even give an accurate or organized description of what the S2 package includes, which they quote an astounding $40,000 for, and have bad power numbers.

Just my thoughts,

Doesn't Dinan put an S2 plaque in the somewhere in the interior? The VIN is listed, so just put in a call to Dinan, they should be able to verify whether or not it is an S2.

Wonder what the reserve is??

I note that there are phone numbers for the seller and the original owner. Not a bad start.

As with any ebay purchase, this needs major research- original owner (S!, plural, not just the last owner). Find out who did the Dinan work and maintenance, look at the BMW history, have the bodywork inspected, etc

The "doesn't know what it is worth" is ... interesting. Best way to be screwed is to think that YOU'RE getting over on the seller.

Dinan provides an S2 palque that has an adhesive backing. It has the Dinan serial number on it, which can be provided to Dinan for verification of associated VIN.

Cheers, Daniel.

The Dinan S2 Package also comes with Front and Rear Strut and Shock Tower Braces. This car doesn't seem to have either ... NO Front Strut Brace and No Rear Shock Brace in the trunk.

The ad also says that the car has Parking Distance Control ... BUT ... I do NOT the PDC On/Off button on any of the interior shots of the shot.

I also do not believe that a Specal Cold Weather Package was ever offered on the e39 M5. The AD claims to have one.

Something does not smell right!!!
