I was searching the web for a friend who is in the market for a beast. I came across this interesting vehicle:

Cars for Sale: 2002 BMW M5 in Louisville, KY 40207: Sedan Details - 371099931 - AutoTrader.com

The pictures are pretty blurry so it's hard to see anything. I put the last 7 into the vin decoder and it came up with some crazy options. "Special Padding Interior" Additionally there is an entirely new section of the decoder with individual specs. The interior looks crazy rare? Green with Red Inserts, and Birch Anthracite Trim?

I dont know who's car that it but it definitely has a unique color interior. Green Nappa with red inserts. Love it or hate it, it is different.

Yes it is very unique, and still looks to be all original from factory. Originally owner probably shelled out a lot of $$$$ for a complete individual interior.

Built for Canada. I know they have different option make ups at times. Chrome trim too. That is interesting for sure.

I saw that also, but just assumed it was weird lighting in the photo. In person I bet it looks even more....uh...unique. Yeah, that's it - unique. :)

first, I find it interesting that the VIN info states that this was a Canadian car, yet the dash is in miles and Fahrenheit. it must have been changed, so I wonder if the vehicles mileage has been tampered with as well.

second, I would never try to aquire a car just because it was individual. this has got to be the single ugliest individual interior I have ever laid eyes on. there is no accounting for personal taste, so someone with more money than sense clearly made some questionable choices when ordering this poor car. the price is perhaps just a touch high for a regular example of this year and mileage, but not out of order. however, for me, this interior lowers the value of the car. significantly. I wouldn't pay more than $14k, knowing that my first mod would be to buy another interior to swap out all the ugliness.

Definitely not for me as well just an interesting find. I would take that birch anthracite trim though.

My car is canadian car as well, and has the updated cluster. Only way it can be legal in US is to convert to MPH. I have a letter from BMWNA that states this when imported.

To each their own, this is truly a unique Beast :confused:

Interesting that 'transport protection' was an option...

I'm looking at a car that had the transport option deleted. After doing some quick internet sleuthing, it looks like show cars, demos, press cars, etc had the option deleted since the car wasn't delivered via the "normal" channels.

That said, the car still has to get from Germany to the US, so I don't know which method wouldn't require some form of transport protection? :shrug:
