After many happy years with the car, the time has come to sell my M5! The main reason for sale is the fact that I do not have much time for it and someone else could enjoy it much more and much more regularly.

As far as I am concerned the upgrades (see the long list below) are some of the best combinations that I have seen and that I could find to put on the E39 M5 without going into superchargering it which I believe changes the character of the engine way too much ...

Let me know if you are interested. I would like to get around 25000EUR, but I am willing to negotiate with serious buyers. Just for your information, the upgrades on the car are worth approx 20 thousand...
