I'm a bit suss on that car... he's only had it for 18months, travelled almost 10,000k's and he's only topped up the oil. Plus he's put Korean tyres on it
Did you end up picking the lemans blue one.

Nah mate, the seller changed his mind before I could have it check it out.

He decided to keep it and said he'll regret selling it... proves to me it was a good a car

Spoke to the owner. Selling as his house burnt down but the garage, with the m5 in it, survived. Pixels are playing up. Has never serviced the car during ownership....

the car from the photos posted doesn't have the correct bumper nor the right windscreen (no rain sensor there and wrong rear view mirror). I have spoken to the gentlemen and he seems nice and willing to provide what has been carried out on the car. however, he has no prior knowledge of the vehicle (how many owners before him and so forth). anyway, thought will do a revs check on the vehicle and it seems that it was declared as an economic write off in 2008 for a collision of some sort, I guess the front side of the car. and had a write off inspection in July 2010, due to the vehicle being involved in Victoria floods in 2010.

if anyone needs the report I am happy to PM it to them.
Many thanks for the info, Mohum.

It's up for sale again: BMW M5 E39 2001 Permormance AND Luxury in Sebastopol, VIC | eBay (in case the link dies, it's a silver car with a VIN ending in 672). Craig claimed to be unaware of the written-off status, but I believe he has previously been informed.

Mechanically the car seemed fine, but the non-disclosure of the write-off made me very suspicious about the car in general.

Be careful if anyone is tempted by the cheap Avus blue with red leather M5 currently on Ebay. It is likely VIN WBSDE92060BJ10147, which means it is a repaired write-off (not mentioned in the ad, very naughty!). Also, it might be worth knowing that a few months ago there was an ad for the car which said the gearbox was broken.
