Posts with cars like these make my day. What an excellent example of what happens when a car is maintained! 207K miles and looks no more than a few years old. Spectacular.

Thanks for the compliments, gentlemen. I would be proud to have it as my dd. Hopefully to have it gone to a good home.

Forgot to add the E60 SSK to the mod list.

Bump for an awesome seller and fellow M Atlanta enthusiast. That car is the truth. Don't let the mileage scare you, this car has been pampered.

Cheers,
M.

See attachments for hood and bumper problem. They don't really bother me since it's a daily driver and I don't expect it to be perfect when I bought it. What important to me is the way it drive and ride, which is perfect as an M5 should be.
Take a qt of oil between oil changes. No accident or paint work.
Carfax show the value at "book value + $1360". I list it at book value to compensate for these blemishes.
