It's that time. We're putting the RPi E60 M5 up for sale. If you're looking for a serious powerhouse vehicle here's your chance.

This is a single-owner, very well taken care of 2006 Silver Gray M5. It's been in no accidents. The front bumper was never drilled for a license plate. The vehicle currently has 32,125 miles. It was ordered, not picked from dealer stock, so it was never test driven, nor sat on a lot.

It has a custom clear wrap done by Premier Protective Films International done since it was brand new (about 50 miles into ownership). The film covers the front bumper, front quarter panels, all 4 doors, the rocker panels, door handles, and sideview mirrors. This is not a pre-cut kit, where you can see the lines. The edges of the film were wrapped around the panels. There are some smudges and scuffs on the protective film, but it's done a great job protecting the paint.

The car was always parked on an end space to help avoid door dings when out. It was also always garaged and never allowed to dry in the sunlight (to avoid water spots). Washing, polishing, and waxing was done front to back in straight lines, from the cleanest panel (roof) to dirtiest (bumpers and rocker panels). This was to help avoid the "starburst" of micro-scratches you tend to see on darker color cars.

Hüper Optik Ceramic tint is applied to all of the windows including the sunroof.

Driver's side (clean, no dings):








Rear bumper (small chip near bottom corner):





Rear bumper from opposite side:





Vorsteiner hood:





Closeup of the two dings on the passenger side rear door. The door has the protective wrap on it. This means the dings didn't go through the paint, so it can be popped back out. It did go through the protective film though (that's why the black color. There's some dust in it):





Interior viewed from passengers side front door. Sorry for the lint on the side of the dash. Was still cleaning car for this picture:





Center console:








Passenger side front door:





Rear seating:





Driver's side rear door (again, sorry for lint in picture):











Rear seating:





Dash. There's some peeling on the steering wheel trim (about $50 replacement):





Driver's side:











Trunk. Original protective plastic and foam is still on the ski pass-through:





Shotgun combination safe for trunk:





Engine bay:











Underside of hood, showing carbon fiber:

God I want that hood so bad!
Would you be interested in parting with it?


Xeno,


While we'd prefer to sell the entire car as is, if that ends up not happening, we may be willing to part it out. We will let you know if that is the case.


Thank you for your interest.

Holy crap, an old timer!

I wasn't even sure you still had the car, I read a lot of your posts early on.

Car is in great shape and has to be an absolute monster. GLWS.

I think you need to transfer over that SC to an "employee" to keep it in the family? :)

Passenger side door film removed and door dings taken out:







New hood struts installed (old ones were starting to get a little tired).

VMS wheels will now be included as well (in addition to the stock), if buyer wants them.

If you have any pictures of the car with the VMS wheels please text or email them.

any chance you have sound clips of this beast?
I'll look for one. The supercharger doesn't really change the sound of the vehicle too much.
