I am considering purchasing a 2008+ M5 with 6MT transmission, so I am searching the typical for sale sites.

What is a good price for a 2008 6MT with under 50k miles from a private party? I would like to find one with most of the factory options and open to color, but white is ideal. What price would be considered a steal? Are there any significant reasons to look for a 2009 other than the updated IDrive controller?

Does anyone know the percentage of 2008+ M5 produced with 6MT transmissions?

Thanks

I recently went through a rather extensive valuation exercise for an insurance settlement on my 2008 6MT with 43,000miles. pm me an email address if you want the spreedsheet

I just purchased an 08, 6sp last week for $42k plus shipping with 23k miles. It took a while to find one with low miles. If you find one on Ebay, make a reasonable offer. Sometimes the seller will contact you and offer you a buy it now price to end the auction. Good luck.

ebay

I am searching right now as well, and there seems to be a lot of black ones, and not much else which that link above explains. I am willing to go with an 2007 right now.... there are 2 in texas for sale 39999, a white one in LA for 38k, and I even found one in houston on ebay for 31k, but by the time I called it was sold! most of these are 2007 cars though... To get a clean 2007 I am guessing I will spend between 35-36k and for an 2008 around 40k with less then 50k miles.... thats out the door pricing, asking might be a little more.

When I was buying mine, I looked for all types locally and only BMW dealers out of the area. I did not want any risks in getting one so far away. Not many for sale in the NE. If your a good negotiator you can get a good price on one at a BMW Dealer. I mostly considered CPO. Last year for 2008's with CPO they were low $40k with about 40000 miles. My first one I got from FL and the second I got from OH, fun road trips home. Private party excellent condition M5s usually ask a premium, cause people are too attached to the car too much emotion...

Find one that was traded in at a dealer, they raped the person on trade in and you can get a good deal if you negotiate well. Unbelievable how the majority are black. If you are really stuck on one color choice other than black you might be waiting a long time.

Dancan23, Just saw your post, and that you listed MA/RI. I am in Middletown, RI, and just picked up an '08 6spd, Monaco blue with Portland Brown. Curious as to where you are located!

Just got my 2008 a month ago from a Porsche dealer. Only 20K miles, lots of Dinan mods-exhaust, suspension, wheels and new tires all for 48K delivered to me. I looked on AutoTrader to find it. I think you can find them anywhere from low 40's to low 50's.

Hey,

I work in Smithfield RI and live in the area. Congrats on the none black M5 6SP! I really wanted a different color but since 50% of them are black it was tough find and I settled on color.

We should meet up sometime.

Thanks

Brian
