looks like i veered off topic in answering previous question, I welcome moderator to move post to appropriate threads.
If you read to the end of the thread you referenced, I am post #48. The picture in my post in that thread was the temp in the shaded garage at the track. I've tracked my 6MT quite a bit over the last 8 years and never overheated my transmission -- even with ambient track temps north of 110F/43C.
nice. mispriced 6MTs come up every now and then from dealers, that's how I scored my first!
but on close inspection, 175k miles is alot, but wonderful color, the silverstone leather really wears poorly/shows dirt well.
Yup. I’m sitting at 170,000 during this “stay-cation”.IMO 175,000 is not a lot of miles for a 6-speed, mine is sitting at 159,000 miles and fiftytwoeighty is at about 169,000 miles.
I think we have a lot more left in them.
I can’t stand listing a car.From the honest Seller perspective selling an m5 is not a fun experience
I would be honest and had my E60 M5 6MT on craigslist at one time and then realized I dont know wth I was doing wanting a brandnew GS-F ( although a pretty good option now that they got supercharger kits out there). My response to these annoying low ballers offering me 15k - 16k was.. "I dont think this is the M5 for you however, there are a lot of 2006 M5's with SMG that are right in your price range.." No disrespect to the 06 SMG owners.The offers He got on Craig’s list were around $12,000 to 13,000 by Kids telling him that is all the money they got.
Being a matter of fact Engineer his reply to them was priceless:
“If that is all the money you got this car is not for you” LOL
