It seems like there is alot of 2nd hand m5's on the board now, and thats fine I have just noticed the change over thats all, and I am wondering how many of the M5 Owners on here acually purchased their cars new vs How many are used M5's. If you'd like and you got your's used, you can also include what you paid for it, and then those looking for used M5's will know what some went for and how many miles where on it and what they will have to look to pay for one, again only if you like.

Got it new in 4/00 (3/00 build). Paid MSRP (came to around $75K) which was quite the deal in early 2000. Now it has 57,500 miles and running fine. The only major mod being the Tubi... I have the IATS kit and I'm just sitting on it, but with more days like today in FL, I'd better get to installing it. Hopefully I'll be driving her until she can't go no more.

Purchased used (with trade in of 2003 M3 SMG) on June 12, 2005. Sale price was $47,000. 2002 LMB/LMB with all options, 42,900 miles. CPO and extended maintenance for 4yr/50k miles.

Buying brand new doesn't seem to be worth it with the cars I've been after. There is a HUGE depreciation hit within the first 3 months, and there are frequently excellent offerings out there that you can save 10's of thousands for a slightly used car.

Used. (First used car in 15 years)

2003, M Audio, PDC, Shades, 16k miles, cpo, Oct 2004, $58k

Car su cks, thinking of selling it for cheap...

NOT


It is an interesting phenomena to see the 'changing of the guard' so to speak as a model ages... been there elsewhere.... somewhat different motivations, bit of a different texture to the new owners...as well as a different type of long term owner that emerges as the 'new car every 3 years type' tends to move on.

Anyway, interesting topic-
