Since everyone else is putting their cars up for sale, I figured I'd officially put my M5 on the market. Plus I want to put the 335 in the garage.

Details:
- 1991 BMW M5 (2/90 build - rare 4 seater vs. 5) meaning 1 of 495 US
- Alpine white/black
- 239k miles on body (head rebuilt @ 190k)
- Washed weekly, fully detailed monthly

Maintenance:
Radiator/cooling hoses (226k)
New battery (235k)
Coolant flush (226k)
Belts - 3 (228k)
Oil change every 3000 w/Mobil 1 15w50 synthetic
Air filter (233k)
Speed sensor (230k)
Trunk shocks (230k)
Valve adjustment (228k)
Valve covers painted (232k)
Hood/trunk resprayed (224k)
New emblems (224k)
OBC backlight/clips replaced (225k)
Lighters replaced (225k)
ALL rear suspension bushings (230k)
Various clips - engine, interior, etc. (233k) - no real need, just being anal
Throttle cables adjusted (234k)
Temperature sensor (237k)

Extra parts haven't gotten to:
Blower motor
S50B32 chain tensioner
Right rear door actuator

Work being done currently:
All 4 control arms
Rear trans seal
Engine mounts
Trans mounts
Pressure lines from the gear box to the p/s pump
Fuel filter

Mod List:
Dinan Chip (more top end oomph, raised redline)
Mark D'Sylvia EAT Chip (more practical mid-range power, stock redline)
OEM Euro 6-speed
Eisenmann 83mm exhaust

Exterior
Euro trim (front)
Euro clears (front/rear)
'93 M5 mirrors
’93 Throwing star system-II covers
'91 Throwing star system-I covers
Shadowline grill/trim
6000k Prolumen HIDs
35% tint (rear)
50% tint (front)

Suspension
Dinan Stage I suspension w/SLS delete (Bilstein/matched Dinan springs)
UUC Springs (uninstalled)
Hartge strut bar
15mm spacers (rear)
Polyurethane bushings (front)

Interior
M-tech II EvoIII Suede steering wheel
'93+ GE module (alters comfort functions, windshield wiper timing/pressure, one-touch down windows, interior light timing, etc.)
BMW E38 self-dimming rearview mirror

ICE
Alpine deck (w/ipod integration)
JL 500/1
Diamond audio 300.4 amp - uninstalled
Diamond audio S500 components (front) + tweeters/crossovers
Diamond audio S400 components (rear) + tweeters/crossovers - uninstalled
Diamond audio 12" D6 subwoofer

Issues:
1. Low beam error warning (from HIDs), nothing wrong
2. Driver's side bolster showing some age - easily cured with Leatherique
3. Rear parcel shelf becoming unglued/faded
4. Right rear door lock actuator broken
5. Front spoiler has small crack underneath (not noticable until up close)
6. Valve cover gasket leaks small bit of oil (nothing major and only worth dealing with when clutch goes)

---

For those who have seen the car (and know me) know that the car is in great shape I value E34s more than most other cars and have sought after the E34 M5 for years...and treated this example in a way reflective of that.

Asking $10,000 OBO. Steal it away from me before I change my mind :(

mike, it sounds like you have some extra parts with the car. Care to sell the UUC springs? I'm not thrilled with whatever springs are currently on my car (a mix of eibach and something else).
Not sure what they cost new, i looked at dinan's web site, can get a set of dinan springs for $340, already have bilsteins.

I will consider that option definitely :) I'm waiting to get the car back from the shop, but I may swap my Dinans out and give them to a friend to try out the UUCs if the car doesn't sell. I'll keep you posted! Thanks for the interest.
