Hello my New England M5 fans,

I'm looking at a 2003 M5 that I would like to purchase, but I live in California and the car is in Stratford Connecticut.

I would like to buy the car right away, but I was wondering if there was anybody who lives in or around Stratford who could give the car a test drive and to visually inspect it?

I can be emailed at: [email protected]

Thank you.

Re: Anybody live near Stratford,CT ?

Is the seller willing to take it to a nearby BMW dealer for a PPI?

Yes he is, but if this local dealer has been servicing the car for 2 years are they going to be impartial in the inspection?

I live a little over an hour north of stratford, I would love to take my M for a road trip and check out that 03 for you. Unfortunatly, with a hectic work schedule and a newborn baby girl at home (whom I adorelovelove ) I spend my spare minutes changing diapers (not complaininghiha )

Again apologies and good luck with your future purchase:M5launch:

Can that dealer give a print out of the serviced performed?
And if they been servicing it, maybe you can work out something for CPO warranty.

I live in CT, about 30 mins away from Stratford. Is it a private sale? There are no BMW dealers in Stratford..

PM me with any questions.. I can try go this weekend and drive it if you like.

Although, if I like it I may just buy it since I recently parted with mine and am suffering from withdrawal symptoms.. just kidding..

Let me know how you want to proceed.

This is what amazes me. Here on the East coast, there just are not a lot of M5's available. And when they come up, they get snapped up quickly. Jeeesh...and people ask me why I flew to Florida for a car.

Well, there was an 02 just reportedly sold for $45k in the 'northeast' with 30k miles... at those prices, no wonder they don't languish!

Hang in there Greer...
