Don't bid on it, it's mine!

Think they'll take my house as a trade in?

Actually, I love it for the wheels alone. :drool:

ah...so that is what the gills look like. Kinda busy. They should have plugged the side marker lamps. Would look a little cleaner.

What do you guys think, im considering but am not sure what to bid at?
I think that's Manny's friends car. If you search the classifieds section of this site you should find a full description and asking price etc...
If that's the car, Manny described it as being VERY fast.
Cheers,

I havent ever seen an M5 with the M3 side vents aka "fender gills" It looks awesome. Does anyone have them on this board...or know how to get them?

the car has been completely repainted by the way.

Hmmm...free of any damage or "repairs" -- yet the whole car has been repainted?

"obvious that this beauty was garaged" -- or just repainted?

the original (he bought it used) owner told me most of the miles were hwy miles from visiting his son out of state, he said the front had alot of rock chips. i believed him . i crawled all over that car and could not find any thing wrong with it. the paint job looks pretty good. not a show paint job but not crappy.

There are to many little suspicisons and things wrong with the car, I would be very cautious. If I remember correctly, a few board members test drove it, and they had a few complaints which swayed them to not buy the car.

Also, if the whole car is resprayed and doesn't look factory, I would walk away!

The gills look cheesy, the brakes are stock and he went with a stage 1 suspension. I'll bet it's fast but you need a BBK and camber plates for that kinda power.... Also the interior looks a little beat up...

I remember seeing the car at English Town Raceway at one of our meets.
The thing I noticed first was the bad paint job. It was just so blatant. Maybe it's been corrected....

No offense to anyone, but I certainly wouldn't pick-up that car :sad3:

Was this the "S2" that was trapping only around the same speed as the other M5's that were there that day?

Thanks for the link. Do you have them on your car? Just wondering what installation is like.
nope. looks like you have to drill the fender... which i'm not so keen about doing.
