that is HOT. it has all the tricks, except for the extended leather option. that is the one I want. too bad, I have other commitments. I should jump on it. oh well, cannot do it, unless its there after the 15th of November.

Mohum,

If only I had $60,000 lying around that would be mine in a flash. It's got everything I want i.e. 12:9 screen, E46 steering wheel, gloss black kidney grilles, gloss black tuning forks etc...

It's definitely worth $58,000 if the 2001 just sold on Friday for $70k. What are the benefits of the extended leather?

Exhaust is non standard, calipers have been painted. This is very much like the one that was sold on the Gold Coast (Sanctuary Cove) back in 2009-2010.

What tyres are those?

I stand corrected that its 16:9 screen. I suspect this car has done a bit of track work purely because most E39 M5's I've looked at are all running street tyres. I hate when a seller doesn't list all the aftermarket modifications that have been done on their car i.e. gloss black kidney grilles, red calipers, aftermarket exhaust, and painted gloss black wheels.

Hi Guys,

Sorry to move this thread off topic again (I still can't PM...).

Egogoose, I was wondering whether your headlights were for a LHD or RHD car. If they are LHD, does it make a big difference?

Thanks,
Huw

that is true,

LHD light pattern are different to RHD. the way to tell is when you fire it up (RHD) you will find the LHS headlights distribute more light upwards than the RHS, this is due to the RHS not focusing the light on the upcoming traffic and vice versa for the LHD.

Just been posted up lads on Carsales from Queensland. Take note of the rare two-tone interior and brand new S62 engine fitted at 30,000kms :dunno:

Have also spotted a fire extinguisher under the drivers front seat which is suspicious to me of being tracked a few times in its life over ownership. New engine fitted under BMW factory warranty at 30,000km (For those that don't know, the early M5 S62 engines from 1999 and 2000 were built a bit too 'loose' so suffered from very high oil consumption). This engine does not use any oil between oil changes!

Fire extinguishers (mounted in front of the drivers seat) are an optional extra; mine used to have one, and my best mate's (in the UK) has one ......
