I picked up a nice clean 2007 M5 6-Speed last month. I searched for 6 months to find the right car with the correct colors and options. It's Silver Gray with Extended Perforated Black interior. Car is very clean and highly optioned, I think. Below is an option list. I'm not sure which of these are standard. I bolded what I think are options. Are any of the others options? I think the only option I dont have is soft close doors. Sticker on the was 98K. I paid $42K.
Thoughts?

Also a few pictures. It's been a tough winter in the northeast. I have not been able to clean the car well yet.

Car also has a V1 installed in rear view mirror and a 3M clear bra. Dinan exhaust goes on next week.

Nice, looking good!

As for the options,

0677 Logic7 sound system is standard; the installed upgraded option would be "Enhanced Premium Sound"

0620 Voice-command is standard.

0655 Satellite radio w/1 year sub. is an installed option ($350)

0415 and 0416 are the same.

Welcome! :M5rev:

IIRC, the Enhanced system comes with 16 upgraded speakers, a 9 channel amplifier, and 800 watt subs. Lol
Yeah, that might make a difference but I find myself not listening to the radio/ipod and just enjoying the intoxicating engine and exhaust tones. I came from a 540i speed then a 528it and I am in love!!

Ugly Plates

I'm going to order BMW CCA Plates JUST to get back to the white plates. I agree, they are awful. What a load of **** to try and generate income for the state.:Thumbdown:

I have a question kind of related, I noticed your have a 6 speed manual, is the SMG automatic more expensive?

Rarely is my radio up past 'barely audible' unless I'm cruising on the highway in 7th. The S85 sounds too good to drown it out with music.

27,000 miles. I did not want an SMG. Prices seems to be about the same now but I think it's a question for the individual which transmission they like better. Lots of 2007s for 40K-50. Price depends greatly on mileage.

I drove many SMGs and yes they are faster I knew I wouldn't enjoy it as an everyday driver. My brother in law has a SMG M5. I came from manual cars and love the day to day experience. Do I give up a couple tenths in the 1/4 mile or 0-60, yes. BUT, I dont drag race so who really cares. The car is still stupid fast and I find myself going to buy milk MUCH more often. I know it sound stupid but even my kids love the car JUST because it has heated rear seats and they can lean forward and control the radio from the IDrive controller. They also think the armrest cup-holder are pretty cool. (even though no food or drink is allowed in the car)

Now reliability. You've read many times here about SMG failures. It happens and it's part of owning an SMG M5. Chances are if you drive the car it's going to happen. I have not read about 6-speed transmission failures yet, overheating on a race course yes, but no failure (send link if I'm wrong). Even if it does fail the cost of a new or rebuilt 6speed unit will be much less than a SMG unit. Clutch, I will have no problem allowing my local indy to change out my 6-speed clutch when it needs it. SMG might be another story.

Now this is the way I see it. I just bought a car for about 60K off sticker. I love to V10 engine, I love the 6-speed transmission and love the car as a whole. If I lined up next to a SMG car would I expect to lose, yes, but not by much. I personally think the car needs a lower rear end to get the revs up quicker so a Dinan rear may be in the future. I have also read great reviews about the Dinan Stage II suspension.

Ten years ago I bought a 540i 6speed when I wanted an e39 M5 and regretted it every time I drove it. I then sold it to buy a 993 Porsche. Instead of buying the porsche I started a new business with the money and bought a 528i touring (yes, a wagon). I've driven that for 6 years and now I've bought the car I've wanted for the past 4 years. I'm happy and I think when you make the decision of what you want, buy something that makes YOU happy.

No regrets on the decision to buy a 6-speed!!:M5launch:

I couldn't agree with you more, only reason I was asking is because I just bought my m5 and was just trying to compare my purchase with yours, good job on the buy, seems like you got a great deal!

Power rear sun shade is for the back window, controlled from drivers door next to the rear view mirror folding button, the Rear sunshades are in backdoor. Is that correct? I have both.
