Are you looking for straight cash or interested in trades?

This is a very clean car btw. All the bells and whistles? Sun shades, AC, cruise, etc etc?

E39 M5s aren't that rare(especially here!), and I don't see any reason to believe there are less than 100 supercharged S62s out there (hell, there are supercharger kits from like half a dozen respected manufacturers).

Heavily modified cars like this need to be thoroughly checked out (as if an e39 m5 didn't need to be anyways), but this thing looks like a f*cking blast on paper and a great deal if it's in the condition described. Also, those wheels are gorgeous. GLWS

Sounds bad *** but I bet you would have more interest if you went back to the stock hood and removed the tail light tint.
Nailed it!

10,000 in North America, so on average, that is 200 per state. If they average out by population, I wouldn't think there are 40 M5's registered in all of Kansas, especially when I see how many seem to show up in Cali and NY. But just a SWAG

and I don't see any reason to believe there are less than 100 supercharged S62s out there (hell, there are supercharger kits from like half a dozen respected manufacturers).
I would think 100 a fair guess. Dinan did what, 30 or 40 (at around $70K OVER the price of the car). ESS was next starting out around $8k, and did maybe another 30-40. And now there is RK, with perhaps similar numbers to ESS. Not sure what other "respected manufacturers" put out SC kits for our cars in any volume (aware of the Buckhead Import guys also).

Yes, a supercharged E39 M5 IS a blast to drive!:M5rev::biggrinbounce:

Regards,
Jerry

Figured I'd toss this out there while I get ready to post it for sale. Any interested in working out a trade for a 2008 FJ Cruiser? :)
