02 M5, 42k Carbon Black, Caramel Interior Warranty till 2/10 or 73k.












One question. The interior is not a 10 out of 10. I have noticed that all of the camel interior cars I have looked at were the same or worse. Perhaps the softer leather is more prone to getting dirty or worn. Is there a preffered method to cleaning this leather well? Any products recommended?

I look forward to contributing to the M5board. I have lurked a bit here on the board lately during my search for the right M5. My next post will have the corrected sig.

Now time to start detailing her. I also notice Carbon Black is prone to swirl marks. What a gorgeous color, but I forsee a lot of effort in keeping it looking perfect.

Holy swirlmarks, Batman!

Nice car, though. I like the color combination :)

As for the leather, do a search for leather restoration. There's been a thread recently with some members' experiences with different treatment methods.

Nice car- carbon black/caramel is a great combo. I went with TiSilver because it requires no upkeep.:)
Enjoy!

wow, another clean m5 recently purchased... nice find! its funny, how i only seem to come across two types of M5 either extremely clean, or beat-up...
I really only think there are two types of owners for the m5: the meticulous owners and the careless leasers :)

Congrats - nothing beats carbon!

Curious why your front turn indictors (small round reflectors) are orange. Were those originally on the car?

Hooray! Another CB/ Caramel beast on the board. Good luck with the swirl marks and keeping your leather fed. Trust me - we all feel your pain.

Congrats bud!

Hey, change the car in you profile... you got it, flaunt it.

Read up on detailing- it isn't hard, the weather will be fine soon, and CB with a total refurb and zaino or wax will be jawdropping.
