After much debate, I am listing for sale my much beloved 2006 BMW e60 M5. I wish I had the garage space to keep her, but I don't so I hope to find her a new home without having to part her out.

I imported this vehicle from the US to Canada in October of 2010 with 84,500 kms (52,500 miles). The car currently has 164,000 kms (102,000 miles).
Asking price is $25,000 USD.

This car has all the factory options except for the heated steering wheel and heated rear seats. VIN is B584167. Here is a list of all my modifications on the car:

Dinan 13% Underdrive Pulley and Belts
Dinan Stage 2 Suspension Upgrade
Dinan Lower Control Arm Monoball Upgrade
Evolve Race-R Headers (cat converters deleted)
Evolve Stage 3 Vmax ECU Tune w. Cold Start Delete
StopTech ST-60/ST-45 Big Brake Caliper Upgrade
StopTech Cross Drilled Aero Rotors and Hats (90%)
StopTech Stainless Steel Brake Lines
Stoptech Street-R Brake Pads (80%)
RPI RAM Air Intake Scoops & Block Off Plates
BMC Air Filters w. charcoal filter delete
RPI SV1 Oil Cooler Upgrade
HRE 20" P40 Forged Monoblock Wheels
Michelin Pilot Super Sport Tires 255/35 front, 285/30 Rear. (4/32 depth all around)
Project Kics DPS Racing Alloy Wheel Lock Bolts
Hamann Front Splitter
Vorsteiner Rear Diffeser with custom mesh
Carbon Fiber Front Grills, Side Grills, Mirror Caps
Black Carbon Fibre BMW Roundels and Wheel Caps (caps mounted on OEM Wheels)
Hard Wired Escort 9500iX Radar Detector
Laser Interceptor Quad HP Sensor Laser Radar Shifters with custom installation
LCI Light Module and Harnass Upgrade
LCI Headlights
Euro Spec LCI Tail Lights
Bruce Miranda V5.1 LCI Tail Light Cables
MTEC White LED Angel Eye Bulbs
Trinity White LED License Plate lights
Trinity Smoked LED Amber Turn Signals
Trinity Interior LED Bulb Upgrade Kit
BimmerTech CIC Navigation Upgrade w. 2013 maps (VIN Coded)
Aluminum ///M Pedal Kit
BMW Apple iPod Upgrade Kit

I have spared no expense on maintenance for the vehicle.
Oil changes every 8000 kms and I have corrected all major maintenance items known to plague pre-LCI e60's:

Clutch & Flywheel Replacement with Cryo Treated Clutch Throw Out Bearing in 2013.
Engine Rod Bearings Replaced in 2015.
SMG Pump Replaced in 2013.
Oil Cooler Upgraded to RPI in 2016.
Throttle Body Actuators replaced in 2017.

The car recently had a new battery installed and all major fluids replaced in preparation for sale: Oil, Transmission, Coolant, Power Steering, Brake Fluid and Rear Differential Fluid are all new. All maintenance work on the vehicle while in Canada was performed either at AutoWest BMW or Performance One in Richmond, BC. The car is in superb mechanical and electrical condition. The only major components that are still stock are the exhaust cans and x-pipe.

Full Disclosure - The car has only been in one major accident, which took place in early 2016, a front impact at about 55km/h on my way to work. The accident required the hood, bumper, bumper cover, left headlight, left fender, and driver's airbag to be replaced. There was no damage to the engine, engine compartment, oil cooler, transmission, axles or radiator. I could have driven away if the police had allowed me to, but the other car was in bad shape (side impact for him) so they called in the tow trucks.

To my extreme frustration, the car was declared a write off because the replacement parts cost added up too quickly. I argued for weeks with my insurance provider to no avail, so I took the vehicle back to repair myself. All repair work was carefully performed at FasTrack Autobody in Richmond (a certified McLaren repair shop), and the vehicle is fully certified, tested and insured. I have full records and photos of the accident site and all repairs that took place which I can supply upon request.

I will supply copies of the entire maintenance and accident history of the vehicle to the new owner.

For a local buyer, I will also include the OEM Style 166 19" wheels with Pirelli Sotozero Snow Tires, and the original wheel bolts.

In addition, I will include all of my remaining original OEM components (eg. brakes, pulley, cats, CCC Computer etc), diagnostic software with DCAN cable, winter floor mats, and include my Escort 9500iX Detector.

I am hoping to sell the car to an owner that will both appreciate and maintain of this vehicle for many years to come. It is an absolute track beast, but still civil enough to comfortably cruise around town with the kids. I'll post a few photos below, and try to figure out how to add a Flikr link to show some more photos of the beast.

Thanks for taking the time to read this super long post.

Price drop. $22,000 USD. If I can't sell the car as is, I'll return it back to stock and unload all the upgrades in the parts forum.

Hi there,
Sorry I somehow missed your question.
Yes I still have the Vorsteiner flippers for sale.
Just shoot me an email at [email protected] if you are interested. I can ship them out next week as I'll be heading to San Jose on a business trip and I can bring them with me.
