Tracking down the Indonesian M5s

Taffy and I were chatting with Anindyanto who is BMW Car Club Indonesia's register custodian and it seems the Indo M5s are a bit of a mystery, most of these M5s come out of hiding for a while then disappear again into various private collections so we are now trying to work out how many are really here.

The starting point is HD91's M5Portal

Here goes
1 - GA25115 Calypsorot met. 1990-04-24 Indonesia Z1XX/944

2 - GA25319 Calypsorot met. 1990-10-11 Indonesia Z1XX

Red M5 sitting at Astra BMW Cilandak ? ( B * *RY)

3 - GA25324 Schwarz II 1990-10-17 Indonesia Z1XX

This is my M5 , M5board member AseanAero / Tony , owned by a 4 star army general since new, sold in May 2012 to a client of mine , sold to me in July 2012. Original color, 57,000kms , good original condition (unrestored), only option of note is a full Nappa leather interior and its a Tropical version (higher water pump speed from 102mm dia pulley, air pressurised cooling system, 9.2:1 engine, larger dash air cond vent)

4 - GA25327 Macaoblau met. 1990-10-22 Indonesia Z1XX

Taffy is this the one from Singapore that is now in Sumatra ?

5 - GA25330 Sebringgrau met. 1990-10-29 Indonesia Z1XX

I Jakarta I think (B *** MW)

6 - GA25331 Alpinweiss II 1990-10-26 Indonesia

M5board member BlueBiTurbo / Taffy, original color , 75,000kms, probably the best interior and bodywork of the Indo M5s (restoration), except for those bloody turbines this is a very nice car.

7 - GA25374 Mauritiusblau met. 1990-12-03 Indonesia

Wrecked - Ex Australian delivered car , I have the engine from it which I found in a jakarta junkyard. I was told the engine was swapped out for a 2 litre six but why would you cut the oil cooler lines with a bolt cutter ? I suspect this car has been destroyed.

8 - GA25388 Schwarz II 1991-01-08 Indonesia

Sitting in a Jakarta spare parts / car yard parking lot for sale for 9 years , still not sold. Damaged transmission and in terrible condition sitting in the rain and sun for 9 years (I have christened this M5 'Eurotrash') it will cost a small fortune to bring back into good order.

So that's 8 M5s on the portal , we believe cars 1 to 3, 5 and 6 were legal formal imports.

VINs UNKNOWN

Daytona Voilet M5

So that's 9

Rumor is there is some more in Bandung (1 or 2 M5s with the 'collector'), Central and East Java perhaps 1 to 3 more M5s

There is also rumored to be ONE E34 S38B38 here but nobody has seen it.

So maybe we have a dozen E34 M5s

Any of the Indonesian board members please add what you can on these M5s and any others you know of.

Given that some of the M5s here are 'grey imports' the owners are very reluctant to reveal the cars identity.

Note to overseas readers - it is virtually impossible to import a second hand car into Indonesia. If a car is smuggled in it is matched to an existing registered VIN number from another BMW. Another example is many Porsches here are registered as VWs !

At least half of the M5s in Indonesia are parked waiting for parts , some for over 6 months. Taffy and I have actually done something about it and we have most of the parts we need to keep on the road. Taffy's present problem being an exception but he will be back on the road in a few weeks.

It is said that if you line up all the cars in the world end to end, someone would be stupid enough to try and pass them.

Nice write-up Tony! Regarding the no 5 car I think I got the details from Roy in Jakarta. Was/is that his personal car? I only put the VIN down, not who actually owned it. I have photos of it sitting at some workshop. According to my notes it had 27.000 km. Reg B**83LT.

GA25115 was presented on this forum I believe, and at least back then it was still calypso red. It was also presented on some local forum I think. "B * HRY"

Taffy, do you know anything about this car B **83 LT ?

You can see most of the M5s here are really low kms , I think all are under 100,000kms

No.
License plate can easily be changed.

As we discussed before one of the car was a flood victim and $20k rebuild.

This is GA25330 from Jakarta. Got the photo from Roy. Must have been in 2008 or so. I think it is/was his car. My memory is slowly starting to come back so I am quite sure it was Roy who spotted the other calypsored one, GA25319, as well (no photos though).
