I'm in the club now! 2000 Euro M5 Carbon black + Caramel

I have been a member here since 2000 (probably most known in this part of the forum for the E39 production statistics thread https://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/e39...tatistics.html and at least since 2013 I have wanted to have an E39 M5. A couple of weeks ago I finally got to purchase one!

It's a 2000 German market car with a fairly long list of options, including Caramel leather (M3CR). Has the upgraded engine since it is a 7/2000 build. My intention is to restore everything to original condition (except the navigation which I prefer to have 9:16).

One question, when driving in 5th and 6th and around 1500 rpm there is a vibration when I give it some gas. Could it be a bad flex disc (no 2 in the link) or is it more common to have issues with the prop shaft centre support? I am really not familiar with this problem.

A couple of pictures of the car in it's current condition. I am looking for a mint condition driver's seat as it kind of spoils the interior as it is now.

Wow, very nice example! That rear seat option is mega rare, especially on a RHD!

Thanks! Yeah, it is easy to fall in love with the gurgling engine sound and all the torque it offers.

Thank guys. Well, the interior is certainly high maintenance. The driver's seat has seen its best days and I am currently looking for a good one, or two nice front seats. I'd really like new OEM leather, but 766,05 € for the upper seat cover is a hefty price tag

If anybody has good Caramel seats for sale at a reasonable price and can ship to Sweden I would be interested. I will give it a try with some leather dye from ebay and see if it at least helps bring some life back to the bolster.
