Would anyone be interested in assisting a future fellow Beast owner out? :1zhelp: I'm contemplating an M5 out of the Florida area and would love some assistance.

Sounds like I may have found one that matches ALL of my criteria which is pretty damned tough! Immaculate, pristine, low mileage, and perfect (to me) color combo. :trophy_bronze: Since I've had three M5's be purchased from underneath me grrrrrrr I'm going to be secretive about this one so as not to tip anyone else off. If you would be so kind as to just do a visual inspection and possibly provide some high res photos I'd be in debt. :thumbsup:

Thank you in advance and boy I bet shipping is going to cost me a fortune from FL to WA!!! :eek:oohhh:

Secretive is OK, but Florida is a pretty big state. Care to narrow down the location just a little?:thumbsup:

alright, this is a nice thing to wake up to! Thanks!

I already did a CARFAX, but thank you Blaque M5.

The location in FL where it was registered is Saint Petersburg so who's closest to that? Once I find out who's best able to do this, I'll PM ya :)

Good grief, did I put too much info out again?! The seller has gone mysteriously silent on me and now I'm beginning to get worried and discouraged again. Pfft, didn't need to buy a car in this economy anyways...wait, is that considered a positive attitude for possibly missing out on my favorite color combo and mileage reqmt's?

Thanks Stika, but for some reason the seller has not contacted me. He said that he would by Sunday afternoon and it's past...I'm almost distraught too as this was really one I was excited about.

If anyone sees a low mileage 2003M5 up for sale, please let me know!

if I get lucky and he contacts me, where around that area is a good place to get a PPI? So far E55AMG2 is the closest!

p.s I work at Logitech so whoever does this I'll grant my 50% discount to family friends as a thank you :) Anything on the website and you just pay 50% + s/h + taxes if applicable. www.logitech.com

I'm in Tampa, about 30 miles away from St Pete. If the seller contacts you, let me know and I'll try and have a look for you. Funny how things work; I recently had a board member look at a car for me in WA. WA to FL shipping is about $1200 or so.

YES!!!!! I took a risk and contacted the seller again to see what was up. He was surprised to hear I did not receive any of the three emails!!! So, it's on!

DAL, if you could e-mail me at [email protected] I'll give you his number and he is available for an immediate personal inspection at your convenience!

After that passes, I need to do the following:
get pics, review them
get the car inspected by a BMW member (internet friend)
get the car inspected by a BMW shop (this is called a pre-purchase inspection or PPI)
get the finances in order
send a holders fee (say $1,000)
get the transport company in place (covered and will take two weeks travel time)
get the car and start to giggle like a little boy

I'm PUMPED!:applause:

I don't care who does the inspection for me from here, I appreciate even anyone trying! The only thing I ask is this: if you were buying a brand new 2003 M5, what do you see/feel which is not showroom condition...that's the level of detail I'm hoping to get :)

I've reviewed the pictures that he sent and I have to say...this looks great so far!!! That's the first of many steps :)

Next on the list...

get the car inspected by a BMW member (internet friend)
get the car inspected by a BMW shop (this is called a pre-purchase inspection or PPI)
get the finances in order
send a holders fee (say $1,000)
get the transport company in place (covered and will take two weeks travel time)
get the car and start to giggle like a little boy
