I'm reluctantly listing my Carbon black 2002 M5 (E39) for sale. My teenagers are constantly complaining that it's too small & they don't have enough room in the back seat. I'm the 2nd owner and have thoroughly enjoyed this beast for 6 years and 65k miles. It was built in Oct 2011 & now has 150k on the clock (8700 mi/yr avg). No accidents; non-smoker; clean title in hand.

I've performed lots of maintenance & repairs (listed below). I had a Blackstone oil analysis done in 2017(?) and it came back fine (no excessive wear). I did a suspension refresh last spring (control arms, ball joints, tie rods, etc). I have a bunch of repair pics on Google photos : https://photos.app.goo.gl/KPaYrv2uq8v2jesA6
(Looks like Google stores them in random order.)
Here's a video of a cold start of my car:
(NO VANOS ISSUES, NO SECONDARY AIR PUMP ISSUES, NO CEL)
There is some oil consumption with this car. I have to add a quart about every 3k miles.
There is slight weeping from the power steering hose. I just ordered the #15 return hose.
CD changer fails when switching discs. Navigation is from a 2001 DVD. These 2 items are likely issues only for the few people left without smartphones.
Pretty good condition for a 17 yo car. The paint is carbon black, and the interior is black leather. The rear bumper has a small 2-3" crack from someone backing into me. The hood has the usual rock chips. The front bumper was replaced in 2017 due to a parking lot incident w/ rebar sticking up out of a chock & ripping it halfway off. The driver seat shows some wear but no rips/tears. On the trunk lid is an LSU magnet - not a bumper sticker. I recently replaced the hood/trunk badges. The stock wheels had major flaking & peeling, so they were refinished in satin black. The car is stock.
If you want a test drive, I'll need to see your valid driver's license and take a photo of it. I'll ride with you on the drive. I always baby the car until the engine is warmed up, and I expect you to do the same.
If you want to have a mechanic inspect the car at your expense, I'm fine with that and can work with you. I recommend Eurotune - they are independent BMW mechanics who have done a few jobs on my car. I also recommend Bimmer Rescue, another indy shop. They did a couple repairs for me last month & provided a comprehensive checklist on my car. I've updated the items w/ my notes. Here's the PDF:
