Valuation on Low Mileage/Rare Color Combo Car

Hey guys,

Im new to this forum but familiar with the brand. I currently own 2003 M5 with 34k miles, it is Alpine White with Caramel(extended leather). I have an air-cooled Porsche project that needs to get done in this century and I don't drive this car too often.

I have seen these E39 cars priced all over the place and I have no doubt that they are increasing in value. But where would a car as described fall today.

I've attached a few pictures....

Thanks!

Beautiful car! I suspect EAG will be contacting you soon. My feeling is that the car is worth $30-$35k on the open market; more in EAG's world

Agree that EAG is a great way to get a wholesale quote - you could then add 8-12% on top of that to come up with more of a private party sale figure. I would also search Bring A Trailer for recent E39 sales - they have been ramping up auction sales and that would give you a good sense of how the car might do nationally. Incidentally - they may be a good platform for you to sell it.

EAG... They always scoop up the good deals then flip them at high prices.

It's worth $22,000 can I get your contact so I can come purchase it!

Seriously in this market I could see that going above $35K even over $40K or possibly into crazier numbers if you can get 2 bidders who want white fighting over it probably from a hot weather location down south. The right day at the right auction and who knows as there really aren't many sub 50K Mile cars left.

I would highly consider BAT as your place to sell it and I would set the reserve at $33K. It looks immaculate. A well documented service history is going to be essential and paying a reputable BMW specialist independant shop for a pre-purchase inspection that you can publish, as well as getting it up on a lift for a serious photo shoot above, below, inside and out would go a log way towards getting this to hit $40K+.
