It might be SN: 1018037, Feb '85 build date, which is actually Salmon SIlver Metallic (203). Lachssilber was not offered as a standard color on the Euro E28 M5.

"Rare car for sale, asking $70k, needs some cosmetic work, no pics, don't ask for pics - I know what I got."

I get that there's an unlimited supply of people who are just couch or toilet browsing/shopping (as many people do for homes they can only dream of qualifying for a mortgage on, let alone purchase with liquidity) - believe me, I get this daily on cars and parts that I'm selling and its the equivalent of a full-time job (especially with all the loneliness and brain damage caused from 2020). But I think you can go through the motions of taking and posting pictures for something like this. If you need help with the pictures, please PM one of us or check the forums for instructions on how to do that. Otherwise go to BaT and post the car there for sale and deal with the peanut gallery (and the process to get approved). This isn't Craigslist, Facebook or Offerup so the target audience is definitely accurate and I'm sure a number of them have the means.

Anybody familiar with this car? I'm in the Seattle area and was thinking about checking it out. Looks like a nice driver-quality car with a body kit. Price seems fair. I wonder if it has an accident history or something?

I think you summed it up nicely. Seller is an idiot.

Something is just not right with this car. It’s obviously a euro M5 but there are so many changes (enhancements to someone) that parts of it are hardly recognizable. Too bad.

It could be that it isn’t a typically spec’d M5.

Lachssilber is German for Salmon Silver and was offered for the European DC91 M5
