You nailed it! It's in Durham at the moment. It should be picked up next week.Where in NC was the car? I used to live in Raleigh for many years, and about 10-12 years ago a techno-violet E39 M5 showed up on craigslist in Durham with ~150k miles and a totally wasted Caramel interior. The car was well beat and the guy was asking $9k initially and the last I saw it was down to $4500. Only later did I find out it was the one and only Individual Techno-Violet E39 M5.
Interestingly, this looks like a very similar neighborhood as that E39 lived in, but then again, you could say that about 100 times over around that area.
That's was fairly cheap back then. My dream is to get my hands on a barn find E39 M5 Estoril blue one day. It's by far my favorite BMW color.
