Hi all,

Unfortunately the time has come for me to sell my M5. I still love the car but don’t have much opportunity to drive it anymore, so I hope to sell it to someone that can properly enjoy this very special classic. It kinda kills me to sell it, but I really need to. :(

The car is a loaded 2001, carbon black w/ black/red 2-tone sport interior and titanium trim. I’m the second owner. The first owner was located in San Francisco. He bought the car and drove it straight to Dinan in Morgan Hill, where they installed their intake, exhaust, software, stage III suspension and 3.45 rear differential. The car was a total garage queen for the first owner. When I bought it in 2008 it only had 17,000 miles! It was my daily driver for my late-schedule (fast) freeway commute from West Los Angeles to Burbank (405, 101, 134) over the next six years, putting on almost 39,000 highway miles - which isn’t very many. Now my commute is a whopping mile and a half, which would hardly get the M5 warmed up, so I walk or take the bus. :( I hardly ever drove it on weekends either. It’s never been on a racetrack and never autocrossed. Strictly transportation. Fun, fast, comfortable transportation. :)

The car’s maintenance is all up-to-date, with the most recent oil change (5W30) done at 55k miles. I’ve done many additional modifications over the years (full list below). The car is CLEAN. It’s rarely had someone in the passenger seat and I could probably count on one hand the number of times it’s had rear seat passengers. I actually keep a Swiffer sheet in the glove box and dust off the steering wheel center, dash, etc. sometimes when stopped at red lights. ZERO dead pixels in the instrument cluster. I’m a non-smoker, non-drinker, non-pet owner. The exterior is in great shape, too - washed regularly and machine polished and waxed when I have the time. It’s always been garaged, both at home and at work. It's also always been a California car, and has never seen snow, ice or salt. The front lower bumper has the usual little rock nicks that any 56k-mile car has. There are a couple other little nicks, but no dents or dings whatsoever. On to the details!

Nice; but stop trying to turn a "For Sale" thread into an "Oil Thread". And who's to say that the oil wasn't Shell 5w-30 with pixie dust.

OP beautiful car and good luck with the sale.

I was just pointing that my car uses 5W30 oil (and I've always used factory BMW 5W30 oil), not the more expensive 10W60 (or whatever some of the earlier 2001's and 2000's used). Ehhh, sorry for mentioning that, I guess? :rolleyes:
