2006 E60 M5
Color: Grigio Medio (BMW Individual color along with Ferrari)
Interior: Sepang with BMW individual black trim



Thanks for your interest in one of my favorite cars I've ever owned. As many know, I've been on this forum for many years and had several E39 M5, 540, E60 M5's. I have a new job now that i’m going to be based in Denver, a lot of running back and forth to the airport now 50 miles each way 14-15 times a month and can’t drive this car in snow weather being real wheel drive and having to be on time if called in to work. I have an amazing set of records, maint and preventative maint done and it’s probably one the most unique and loaded M5’s out there - I went after this car, original owner only had less than a year and only 2500 miles on it. Second owner was Las Vegas executive, financial guy…super nice and got from him. He drove car from St George Utah to Las Vegas as his amazing commuting car..all highway. I bought at 72k miles and have put 21k on it in 4 years of owning.
Ive done so much work, make it all euro spec and thousands of dollars worth of unique upgrades added to car from DINAN work, exhaust etc- I’ll post all I’ve done.



NOTE: When car was under warranty had a bearing issue and they replaced with a 2010 S85 M5 engine with 32,000 miles. being a 2010 Engine, it’s the latest upgraded Vanos, SMG etc- the current odometer shows 95k, engine issue happened at 75k, so current engine really has approx. 53,000 miles on it. Warranty expired in April but thankfully had it with engine replacement.


NOTE: Story on paint: in July 2016, see carfax…was at neighbors house…1 mile away and started hailing at 10pm- no garage to pull into and car got hit….we did new hood, trunk, roof, door skins and new windshield because of paint- all BMW OEM parts except the Siebon hood- It has perfect beautiful paint and BWM Grigio Medio Individual color that Ferrari and BMW use- same time, sold interior to local guy and bought entire interior out of 2009 rear ended white on Sepang car…only had 22k miles on it…so entire interior except climate control panel is LCI. My car didn’t have M mode auto seat bolsters (squeeze in when turning) ..can’t get them to work, so perhaps coding needed…bought panel next to heated seats control so perhaps who gets this can work on this upgrade? Paid $3,000 shipped for interior alone..full leather door panels etc.


DETAILS ON CAR:

New brakes (last 10,000 mils, pads and rotors)


Cat back exhaust,

Bimmertech ATV4 Apple TV and backup camera

Germantech werks custom individual steering wheel ($1200 euro)

LCI piano black trim interior ($1000)

Where is the vehicle located now? You mentioned it is garage kept but the pictures above makes it look very much like a weathered outside car. Can you provide some additional photos as well? Much appreciated.

Not much... reported to me had been done rodbearing and vanos, but no records provided. Car was driving fine with light white smoke , I sent to the best place around and they said just needed 3 coils replaced. They said needed drive often... had oil and filter changed and battery replaced...and car was left parked again and now code to replace 3 more coils came out. Battery was dead and code not showing anymore. I will need to drive to find out which coils need replaced.

Man I wish I had seen this when I was up in Bethesda. I just wrapped up a 3 week business trip up there. I am about wore out from all the travel but hopefully I get another trip up there soon as I am definitely interested in the car but paying for travel and transporting it throws a wrench in it for me. I'm really looking for an unmodified 2010 6speed but damn if the car doesn't look like a great piece of jewelry.
