Congrats! That's one nice M5. And low mileage too. I'm jealous that you got one with the original radio/tape player. That's seemed really rare when I was on my hunt last summer.

This one was on autotrader right? I think I called on it, guy was in a meeting and was going to call me right back. Didn't call till a month later, which worked out better because I would have bought it an missed out on the one I got with under 100k and Dinan mods (though I paid a good deal more).

I did find it on autotrader and it had been there for about 6months with crappy pictures. The gentleman was very nice, super easy to deal with, and was pretty knowledgeable about the car, the brand, the history, etc.

You say
the one I got with under 100k and Dinan mods (though I paid a good deal more).
and you are in the M5 prices section, so mind if I ask how much and what mods?

New to the M5 Community - Just purchased an 88 M5

Post by Curtispsf »

hi guys,

I'm the original owner of a mint 86 325e (90K miles) and a few months ago I started looking for an M5. I found a near mint vehicle last month in Sacramento and I jumped javascript:emoticon(':banana:') on it.

It has 149K miles, beautiful cosmetic condition with about 4k of recent repairs by the dealer after it sat idle for 5 years.
New Dunlop wheels, nonstock BSS rims, nonstock cd player, great AC etc. The dash has some cracking, but I have a replacement dash on hand to go in down the road. It runs great.

I really don't know if I overpaid for it...only time will tell, but here's the details... Luxury Motor Cars in Sac. asked $17,995 and I paid $16K including tax, title etc (equivalent of about $14K +/- $500.). It's a small company (4 employees) and each of them drove the car before for a month before it was sold. They said it was hands own the best M5 they had seen...and pointed out some known (to them) minor issues and so far, no surprises.. Great power.

I probably paid too much but I'm pleased with what I got for the $. Lord help me, my BMW mechanic will be looking over the vehicle next week. Crosses fingers. javascript:emoticon(':alright:')

How can I insert pics of the car? or do they have to be URL linked to view?

You must host them on an external website and then post it on here. :)

Here's one with half the mileage for $25k.

No service records (!) and needs plenty of cosmetic work - why would anyone present one of these for sale with a missing badge/emblem on the wheel center cap?
I think if all the cosmetic stuff was done and it had a fresh service, it might be worth the asking price.

Just sell your home and buy this one...would be really crazy if somebody pays 6 figures for an M5, no matter how museum-quality. Yikes!

The Henna Red SA-built DC98 M5 (ex-Australia) has been sold for GBP55k.

That's equivalent to around $US89k, for a 30k mile, truly immaculate M5.
See the October 2014 issue of BMW Car magazine for an article on this stunning machine.

It's now official, my 1988 US M5 is now on a trailer from Orlando to California.
The car has about 175K original miles on it. I found it on craigslist. Everything is stock except the shift knob. All VINs matching, no accidents and plenty of maintenance record from the previous owner for 10 years. I paid 8.5K for it, asking price was 11K.

Oh, probably not. There must have been a reason to sell, right?

I purchased a Canadian black/black car that was in the Classifieds a month or so back for $5500. Currently going under the knife for euro bumpers. Deals are still there to be had I guess. Selling off another M5 with a blown engine along with a parts M5 to a friend for same $5500.

This one is possibly more realistically priced, although it's been modified to Euro look, & needs the bigger headlights IMHO.

Yep. They aren't getting any cheaper.

Regular e28 535s are fetching high teens overseas. M635s and M5s are mid-forties and up over the pond, and up to 66 grand here in the States.

A 25k mile, 1988 M6 recently brought 66k in Oklahoma. Granted, it was flawless.

As enthusiasts get old enough to afford these cars, they are significantly climbing in value. People who once said, "One day!" are now old enough to afford these cars, and the prime examples will demand a premium.

Just a few years ago, you couldn't give away an M635csi, even with a free $10,000 hooker in the passenger seat. Now folks are yearning for the days when BMWs were attached to the tarmac, were devoid of computerized steering, and the cars actually had a soul.

Newer 6ers and 5 series are crammed with electronics and "features" your average real estate agent would love...Unfortunately, they are heavy, large, and lack the feeling the e23, e28 and e24 bring to the senses.

Driving is sacred to some of us. Maps, Bluetooth, iPods and 75 loudspeakers may sell cars on the showroom floor, but they do little for the experience of actually driving.

There is good reason the original M cars are fetching more than the newer models. Passion for driving and exclusivity. Only a scant few remain in either flavor of M car. Even fewer unmolested examples with all records exist, ready to drive.
