Well a couple of years ago I thought about buying an M5 as a new toy. Since my garage was full and my truck was being used regularly since we just bought a house I just decided not to buy anything. I always look and research cars when I'm bored and decided on an M3. I was planning on buying one in a few years when I decided to sell my truck. However I found this site and realized I really wanted an M5
Since gas prices are going up again, the value of my truck will fall just like SUV's and trucks did back in 08 and 09. I decided it was time to sell it now while the value is still worth something. She has been an excellent truck since I bought her new and have always taken really good care of her.
I then had a renewed interest in the M5 when I noticed how affordable they had become. I found a black one in Texas. Since I love black cars and have owned 6 others I wanted a black one. I need to give major props to Mike S on the board for volunteering to look at the car for me. However when I called on it, it had no records and 111xxx miles. Still Mike S thank you!
I then looked locally in Colorado Springs on Craigslist just for the heck of it. I found a small one line add for an 03 M5 but it was blue. I still decided to email the guy and we eventually set up a time for me to see the car. We met near a coffee shop and I saw the car for the first time. It was beautiful and stuck out like a really hot chick standing next to ugly girls! I was in love at first site, and forgot everything about buying a black one. I drove around the car and noticed the DINAN on the back! Even better!!!
Well I ended up buying the car three days ago and have already removed the goofy looking mud flaps which were only in the front, had the windows tinted, and polished the entire car by hand. Here are the specs, 2003 M5 Lemans blue, 101xxx miles, fully serviced with maintenance records, black leather with aluminum trim, short throw shifter, pixels just fixed, Dinan exhaust, Dinan S1 suspension, Dinan tune. I love this car!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
