Wow Jason congratulations.

Your car VIN is the one before mine.
I started this list in 2010 to see how many we might find.
Thanks for signing in.
I guess it's ok to put you name on the list since you included it and the VIN.
You are the 11th listed owner. Gee we may get to 50% of the 30 someday.
Thanks.
Where was the car before you got it?

It looks great and glad someone got it that will take care of it.
See you're near SF.
In 2016 it will be the 100th anniversary of BMW. Big events and OFest planned in Monterey and Laguna Seca.
Put that on your calendar. Should be spectacular.

Not sure if I will bring the M5 or the 72 3.0 CS I am currently working on. I drove the coupe to Colorado this summer and back. 4000 miles.
Keep us up to date on your car and if I can help in any way please let me know.

Gary:

Thanks for the warm welcome. I've followed your posts with a lot of interest and admiration. This car came from Brentwood/Nashville, TN. I'll mark my calendar for the BMW event - sounds fantastic.

Thank you so much for offering to help. I am certain I will take you up on it soon!

Best,
Jason

How does a Black interior Canadian car differ? Does it make the car less valuable? I'm considering a Black on Black e28 M5 but it's a Canadian car in the US.

Thanks in advance.

Yes I am, thus the reason why I ask. Maybe it doesn't effect anything. Please educate me :)

Rare E28 M3. It's Perlbeige on Diamantschwarz, however.

Hey puma,

The guys on here can be pretty cynical and are giving you a hard time because you asked about an E28 M3
M3 no, that is a different model. The E28 is an M5. So lets just get to what I think you are asking.
Other than the speedometer being different (kilometers vs. miles) there probably isn't too much difference between a Canadian black interior M5 and a US black interior M5.

The reason the black interior US cars are more valuable is because there were only 30. Please read the info here about the black interior cars.

Now watch because I said "more valuable" this will start a blast about how this isn't true etc, etc.
I think they are more valuable because I own one. :laugh:

My bad I was typing too fast and didn't notice...yeah I meant e28 M5. :oops:

Thanks for the info. Hopefully I can find a car in my budget. I recently gave up the decade long search for an e30 M3 as they are now out of my financial reach for what I want to do.

Thanks again.

Sir,

You need to read the beginning of this thread.
This sign up is for the 30 US cars not the Canadian cars that all had black interior.
I appreciate your enthusiasm and glad you're an M5 owner but please delete your post.
Your car is NOT one of the 30 according to the VIN you submitted.
Thanks,
Gary

Congratulations and welcome.

So you bought Brady Tanners car.

Would you mind giving us your name and I will change the info at the beginning of this thread to your name.
Tell us a little about the car. Mileage, mods, etc.

Actually bought it from the guy that bought it from Brady!

My name is Brandon Raap, and the car is bone stock. 100% original...with a measly(get this) 350k miles! Though you'd never know it, as the original paint looks fantastic and the interior is damn near new! I'll post some pics as soon as I have them handy..

Is there a way to update this entire list? I imagine some of the cars from the beginning of this thread have new owners by now, especially with the rising prices. Not mine though:)

That would be great if you can figure out a way to do that.

This is a member forum where the info is no better than what the members contribute.

Many of these owners are still the same.

They get these posts if they're still members so it's up to them to offer new data.

WBSDC930XJ2875206 is in my possession.
Well, the back half is, awaiting conversion into a smoker/BBQ pit.
The front half is probably a microwave oven by now.

Thanks Sherman,

See you at the Vintage.

I guess I shall update this thread!
Shawn Cole from Lapeer, Michigan

I recently purchased WBSDC9302J2791946 From a gentleman who had it stored in a warehouse. The car was built in September of 1987. At some point, the car was "imported" from Canada to the US and a previous owner swapped in a US cluster. It hasn't been plated since 2014 but hasn't actually been driven since 2013. Currently I'm estimating 170k miles on it.

EDIT: I do realize it isn't one of the original 30 however it does reside in the US now :cool:
