Just spent a few days of my quarantine and lots of elbow grease getting Big Red all cleaned up.
Did a full compound, polish and detail on her; cannot beat the way single stage shines when it's fresh!

Hi Guys, I'm considering selling my 1995 M5 touring BL01873. What in your view would be the best platform for the sell ? Autoscout ? The car is in France but I can consider shipment anywhere.

Thanks for the help

Hi.
Perhaps not the best times to sell a good value car ??
Anyway, good luck. Remember, there also is demand and
a ,market‘ - over there -. You may wish
to give it a try here ? reasonable - reserve - recommended.

It was a difficult call to make and I delayed the decision for several month already. But I'm moving out of France to leave in Switzerland and I can't take my 7 cars with me as I go from a house to an appartment. I did short list 3 and the M5 is not part of them.

What do you mean by Over there and here ? Is there a section for vehicles on sale on this forum ?

Looks great. Was this the BaT car? Any surprises getting it up and running?

What I meant with ,over there’ is the US-market where these
cars are highly appreciated. Already appr. 40+ of E34
M5tourings have found a new home in an US state.
I suggested to consider the BaT-auction site as a sales tool.

Otherwise your options are many, mobile.de,
autoscou24.com, some U.K. classic cars sites and more.
Now that I/we are aware about your plans we will direct any interested party to you.
Again, good luck and let it go to a good home.
PS:
If it is ,ok’ with you, I could make an entry in the german
e34m5.de forum informing that your E34 M5touring is
available and for sale.

Ok, thanks.

Yes, it's fine with me. I will anyway articulate an ad in the relevant section here with all the details.

Thanks, you're correct!
No big surprises; I did end up having to rebuild basically the whole SLS system, but I more or less guessed that from the stance in the auction pictures.
The car has actually came back into service pretty well, I just need this quarantine to end so I can plan some road trips!

That's great. Glad to see it back up and running.

Is the USA market better? Maybe I will put my m5 on bat.
-
Maybe it was for a while and perhaps still is ?
Meanwhile we are in difficult times every where ?
How much did you improve the car to bring it back
to former glory ? What was done to it in your care ?
-
For a BaT auction and unless the car is in the US and
has a state title, the offering is recommended to
include a transparent (pricing, ro/ro, container)
alternative of shipping arrangements to East-/South-
or West coast ports of entry to the US,
alternatively Halifax for Canada.
-
Good luck, in any case.

We have worked away the rust on the doors and below of the car, tank lid, doors, all the scratches and repainted where needed. We have repaired all the windows, electric roof. We have changed all fluids and some filters. We have changed all belts. We have changed the visco fan and I think we will change the waterpump and thermostat too. repaired the exhaust. repaired the electric seats (motors) but now the headrest motor is having a hard time :p.

Hi again.
So, it’s on it’s way to former glory 😃. Keep on doing it
for best results and 👍👍for the efforts to rescue this
great car !!
-
Headrest adjust failure. This is a common problem with
an easy fix as long as theelectric motor is running which
it normally does. You need to shorten the plastic
surround that the adjust wire is running in.
I believe there is a fix write up here on the site under
the FAQ section heading (?).

Cheers.

2 For Sale on New York Craigslist:

Pretty scant amount of information and pictures in the ad.
These were discussed on one of the facebook groups. About one third of the milage that they were last advertised with before leaving europe, and some other questionable history.
