2006 BMW M5 – 106,000 Miles WITH Warranty to 129,000 (Sept 2020)

I am moving to Boston and will be selling my 2006 M5. I am asking $18,000 which includes transfer of the warranty (I will pay the $50 document fee). The car is very sound mechanically and is in good shape cosmetically as well. I have replaced several items (detailed below) while under my care. When I bought the car last year, I had not planned on moving away from DFW (I live in Allen/Plano, TX) but obviously things have changed. This is a very fair price for this quality of vehicle and the very generous warranty. This is an excellent way to get into the platform and still have a good chunk of money set aside for gas, tires, and maintenance while the warranty provides significant peace of mind for the big ticket items.

I purchased the warranty from Ally (the middle-tier Value Guard, link here) in September 2017 for 30,000 miles or 3 years (taking the mileage up to 129,000 and duration to September 2020). This warranty is very comprehensive mechanically and covers virtually all known problem areas of the E60 including rod bearings, VANOS solenoids, VANOS internal high-pressure line, OEM catalytic converters, SMG transmission (electronics and hydraulics) and even the alternator (plus a ton more, read the link). This also covers a large number of items you might not expect it to such as suspension bushings, engine/transmission mounts, leaking internal and external gaskets (plus replacement fluid), and a ton of other stuff. The warranty also provides for a rental reimbursement and trip interruption claims (> 100 miles from your home address). There is a $100 deductible per visit (not per replacement item), which is waived if you have to make a repeat visit for a claimed item within 30 days. You can take the vehicle to your choice of ASE certified shops, which includes all BMW dealerships (to my knowledge) as well as the majority of prominent independent shops (I use Ultimate Bimmer Service in Addison, TX).

Key features are below:
106,000 miles (this will go up approximately 100-120 miles per week as this is my daily driver)
SMG (as all 2006s are) with Euro tune
Silverstone exterior
Silverstone interior with aluminum trim
Sport seats
OEM 19” wheels with Anthracite power coating on wheels, small front spacer on front wheels (~2.5mm)
Continental DW tires in OEM 255/285 sizes (60-75% tread wear left, under 10,000 miles)
Lowering springs (from previous owner)
Dark tint on all windows to keep out the Texas sun
Comfort access
Adaptive headlights
Navigation, etc. (standard items)

Key maintenance/replacement parts during my ownership:
Steering rack (100,000 miles, warranty)
Rear diff input shaft seal leak (100,000 miles, warranty)
Oil scavenger pump seal leak (100,000 miles, warranty)
Front thrust arm bushings (100,000 miles, warranty)
Diff bushings (100,000 miles, warranty)
4 wheel alignment (100,000 miles, warranty after steering rack replacement)
Front tie rods (100,000 miles)
Coolant thermostat replacement and coolant flush (105,000 miles)
Drive belts and tensioner pullies (105,000 miles)
All 10 spark plugs (101,000 miles)
Right rear comfort access door handle (102,000 miles)
2 oil/filter changes with Castrol 10w-60 (100,000 and 105,000 miles)
Engine air filter replacement (100,000 miles)
I also sent the 100,000 mile oil off to Blackstone for an analysis and have posted below. I have a sample of the 105,000 mile change but have not sent it in yet.

Pictures will be posted below. You’ll have to excuse the car seats in the rear, those with children will understand how difficult these can be to get in and out and I will not be removing them until the car is ready to go to its new owner. Those of you without children are welcome to look up car seat installation videos to get an idea of why I do not want to take an hour to remove/replace these in 90-100 degree weather just to take 30 seconds worth of pictures.

Please contact me via the forum or my Gmail address at Jason.E.Lindeman (usual suffix removed to avoid email bots). Happy hunting!

PS – I also have a 2006 E46 M3 for sale here

Please excuse the rust on the rotors, I had just washed the car and had not moved it before the pictures.

2006 BMW M5 – 106,000 Miles WITH Warranty to 129,000 (Sept 2020)

Just replaced front rotors (Zimmermann) and pads (Textar).

Also just hit 106,000 miles over the weekend with still another 23,000 and 2 years left on this incredible warranty. This is a great opportunity to have a financial backstop to keep you driving the car rather than worrying about it.

You’re giving this thing away...honestly at this price I’d find storage for it or better yet, you have a warranty, just drive it. You won’t get anything even remotely close to this for this price. Sorry, I know you need to sell but after experiencing one, I realize that it truly is one of the best cars ever made. Ever.

It really has been a lot of fun and if I were not moving, I would definitely be keeping it longer. Unfortunately, it does not lend itself well to my upcoming living arrangements and the lack of space to store and (more importantly) work on it is a big problem in my book.
