Need someone to inspect E39 M5 near Calgary

Hello everyone,

I am a long time lurker, but I am very close to picking up an M5. I am in Winnipeg, but I am looking at this car in Calgary.

The car is a 2001 in a rare velvet blue that I must have. However he doesn't have service history from the previous owner.

Also the exhaust tips don't look factory in that ad.

I have been dealing with Gerry over the phone and he has been helpful. His number is (403)-eight six two - 555 four

I have mentioned to him I'd like to send someone to look at the car and he is willing to accommodate.

Please give me a ring: (204) 297-nine nine five one if you can help me out, test all the switches and peak at what the underside is like. I can mail you a tim's card or something

Thank you everyone!

Why don't you find a reputable shop in Calagary and have them do an inspection.

Also get the vin so you can run a carfax report.

Interesting for sure. To bad I am not closer.
I was in the same boat when I found my Oxford Green car which I had to have. I was somewhat prepared for the bill that was to follow. But I couldn't be happier now.

I'd wager there is a couple grand easy in maintenance.

I tell you what... if I can get away on the weekend I will try to pop down to Cowtown and take a look.
No promises, I am in Edmonton.

This guy is reputable in Calgary:
Vitek's Autoworks

I had him inspect my E92 M3 before flying into to Calgary to buy it.

Hey Miguel I hope you got the car inspected.... I am in the same boat .
I saw a 1991 m5 in Edmonton that I would like someone to be able to look at it.
Does anyone know this car?
