I'm the original owner of a '93 M5 with 56.7k miles. Recently posted a question about potential value but apparently the moderator didn't like it.

My list of best things about the M5:

1. The feeling of total control and world domination on the road.
2. The silky gear shifts.
3. The sound, especially full throttle going up a hill in a canyon with the windows open.
4. The steering feedback makes you feel connected to the road like nothing I've ever driven.
5. Knowing you have a product which is IMHO the pinnacle of quality performance.
6. It makes me smile every time I get in it!

When I bought my M5 new in April 1993, a "free" 3-day trip to Germany was included for a visit to the Motorsport factory in Garching including meeting the guy who assembled my unit, then driving the (then) new M3 to Nurburgring for driver training and two trips around the track, once as a passenger and once as the driver. That was an experience I recall every time I fire it up.


P.S. I'm considering selling and wonder which of the following you guys recommend? (If the moderator doesn't delete me again).

1. Autotrader
2. BaT
3. eBay

Well, mine is possibly available, let me know if you are interested...

It's been a daily driver for 5 years, pretty much sorted and reliable. Check my profile for pics...

Getting new tires right now...

Unfortunately I won’t be in the market for one for about 5 years.

A lot of debts will be paid off then (childcare, 2 daily drivers, student loans, PMI insurance).

Definitely can’t do it right now otherwise I would and this thread wouldn’t exist.

There are many benefits of using BaT for a sale - the community can provide lots of feedback on the condition of the car, as well as free "hype"/advertising. As with any car of this vintage, the records of care & maintenance (the "pedigree") count the most. Since you were the original purchaser, and have kept the car for this long, you likely have many good stories about what works/what's been fixed, as well has memories that the average 4-owner (mine is 8-owner) just won't have.

My best recommendation is to set a reserve-price you can live with... Most of the comments from potential buyers, especially previous owners, seem to regretful of selling their M5. Best of luck with your sale, if you choose to pursue it. If it's on BaT, I'll be watching for it (have a filter for E34 M5's...)

The induction noise and the leather sport seats that you can tell are actual leather. #3 and #4 are the classic sedan lines and all of the cool colors offered on the M5.
