2001 M5 TiAg over Silverstone (fully sorted)
Listing my 97,500mi Titanium over Silverstone 2001 M5.
This is a totally squared away E39 M5 Titanium Silver over Silverstone/black interior. It's a no issues car, under 100K fo $20K which I think is a great deal.
Engine: Timing chain tensioner, IAT relocation, shark tune, recent spark plugs, fresh oil/filter, MAFs, CPS, thermostat.
Suspension: Dinan S1.5 (springs, stocks, bump stops, and RSB), Beast power brackets, Powerflex thrust arm bushings (with new arms), rear upper and lower control arms.
Driveline: New clutch (SBC Stage 2 street), flywheel, electric fan, trans mounts, diff output seals, RMS, shifter bushings (stock lever) and all 3 diff bushings. Trans, diff and brake fluid changed.
Body: Freshly resprayed bumper, Price Wheels refinished wheels, new rear window gasket, regularly waxed and clayed, new "pork chops", metal headlight adjusters, DJ auto clear headlight lenses.
Interior: Technical graphite trim, DVD nav update, new cluster (no dead pixels). DICE mediabridge, repaired rear view mirror (radarmirror.com)
If you're familiar with e39 M5s, you'll see that all the common problems are taken care of and this is a "sign and drive" meticulously maintained car. I expected this to be a lifelong car and was maintained as such (like my 14 year owned e30 M3), but I found an '03 Imola M5 that has the options and color I wanted for long term (impulse buy). I bought the TiAg for $22,000 at 85,000 miles thinking it would be squared away and ended up putting $7800 into it, and I'm looking for $19,500...
