Are you looking for e39 or e60 M5?

I have 2003 CB with full options with 14K miles. Warranty until June 2007.
I just sold my 2002 996 and started to look for a 996tt.

PM me if you are interested.

Hi Guys:
Thanks for the great response. Just to clarify: I am looking for a Red OR Black M5 ('00 or '01).
As far as my car + cash (how much cash?) I think what is fair is to compare Average Trade In or Average Retail of your car against my car. You can go to KBB, Edmunds, or NADA websites. It doesn't matter which numbers you use, but use similar values for both cars. This is the "cash" I am looking for in the trade.

just to give everyone an idea of what the blue book values for the cars are:

2002 M5, 45000 miles, all options: 51000
2002 turbo, full leather, spoiler: 82000

so it looks like the blue book values are about 30k apart. a bigger gap than i was anticipating

ernie :(

You are correct!!!!!
I was looking at a $40K+ gap with a 2000 M5, down to a $30K+ gap with a 2002 M5.
It is a big difference, but my car was a MSRP $130K back in 2002. With over $25K of Mods. With a TT you are going past the "great performance" catagory (M5). And you are stepping into SuperCar/Exotic catagory. You are getting an everyday driver that can beat most Ferraris, Vipers, etc. And keep up with any exotic on the road.
The price of admission is high, but the ride is worth it!
