Have finally decided to part out my 2002 E39 M5, California car its whole life, please PM me with parts you're interested in. Car has 129,791 miles on the clock and is located in Los Angeles, CA northeast of the San Fernando Valley just north of the city of Burbank off the 210 freeway, zip code 91040 and I work in Woodland Hills, zip code 91367. Strong preference to sell everything locally as I'm not in a rush and despise going to the Post Office. I understand that's not realistic and I will eventually ship parts but for now I prefer local pick-up only. I'd like to sell the fully running engine/transmission, DME, etc. first and will only do local pick up on it. Local buyers interested in engine/transmission/DME are welcome to stop by and see the engine started and running in person. This car was meticulously maintained and all work was done by myself. Please work with me as I do have a full time job and removal of parts not currently pulled from car will need to be done during the weekend. Please review my maintenance/modification log to see the extensive list of quality parts that were replaced as preventative maintenance on the car during my ownership.

*ANYTHING NEEDED TO START ENGINE, STEER OR MOVE CAR ARE ITEMS I'M UNABLE TO SELL UNTIL AFTER SELLING ENGINE/TRANSMISSION/DME, NAMELY:
  • WHEELS
  • SUSPENSION
  • STEERING WHEEL
  • ETC.
General Rule of Thumb --> If bulky, heavy or over ~$500 in cost then LOCAL PICK-UP ONLY for now, other smaller/lighter/less expensive items I can ship LATER. I'm trying to figure out the best way to complete this part out that my schedule allows. Feel free to PM your parts interest even if shipping required so I can keep a tally and refer to it later.

Thanks guys, miraculously no one was hurt but definitely saddened by experience because of how much time I put into preventative maintenance and tasteful mods on the car and not really getting to enjoy it.

Guys, I don't want to upset anybody but I'm going to see what kind of local interest I get first before I resort to shipping as it's just a lot of headache for me to ship a lot of parts. Please PM me your interest in the parts you want and I will keep a list of everyone who showed interest then get back to you after I see what kind of initial LOCAL interest I get.

Thank you for understanding.

I'd be interested in pricing for the spare tire bucket in the trunk floor as well as all the trays and carpet on the trunk floor.
Thanks

Thank God, no one hurt. Wish you were on the East coast, I’d buy the car from you. Excellent donor for my ‘03 540it.

So sorry to see this. Same thing happened to my LMB E39 a few years ago. I desperately wanted to fix it but the body shop didn't think it would ever be right again.

I would be interested in the two drivers side wheels (looks like both pass side wheel s are pretty much gone). Let me know the price for local pick-up.
Sorry for your loss.

So I'm trying to fine tune a process that works best for all pick-up transactions. Please keep in mind that I'm not a seasoned used parts seller and this is a one-time deal for me so I need time to research to arrive at fair price and am willing to negotiate but no low-balling please. Also, the car resides in my home and not a junk yard or pick your part. I don't want to negotiate with potential buyers on site. Best way to streamline this process is for you to send me as complete a list as possible of items you want, we arrive at agreed upon price, I prepare parts for pick up then arrange for pick-up time that works for both parties, done. I also work in the Woodland Hills area so we can possibly meet near there around lunch time to do exchange.
