Alim, Your M5 is a Canadian spec M5 and it is NOT one of the 30 USA spec cars built with Black leather. You should remove that from your eBay listing. Out of the 101 Canadian spec M5s, 71 were built with Black Leather and the reminder with Natur Leather. The original poster created this thread to identify only US spec cars.

Best,

VIN 2875205 is somewhat noteworthy as it is the first of the 30 USA spec cars built. I understand it is undergoing a refresh and I would love to see updated photos.

Would you mind giving us a name and location?
LA is by your name.
Haven't seen you on here before?
How long have you had the car?

I see you are a photographer.
I am a retired commercial photog in Atlanta.
My son lives in LA near the stadium and went to LA Recording School.
I started this thread and as you can see I have not found many of these cars.
Thanks for signing in.
How did you find this post?

Hey Gary,

My name is Jeremy and it's true, I live in Los Angeles. Close to Pasadena.

Bought the car 3 months ago and just had the whole suspension redone, it was beyond destroyed.

It's a car I've wanted most of my life. Grew up with GTIs and other VWs and currently drive an S4 Avant and had a very good year so I treated myself. It's a car I never plan on selling because honestly it's a car I never thought I'd ever own. And I didn't even though black/black existed until I found this one.

I am new here, googled e28 M5 message board or something and found this.

I'll take some new photos if it ever stops raining here. Currently I have one on my blog and thats about it.

Hey Jeremy thanks for getting back to me.

Great to see some young blood interested in the car.
I will ad you to my list of black interior M5's.

My friend Phil Conrad lives in Long Beach and has an M5 and is very knowledagble about these cars. He is on the board here as Philo. I'm sure he would be glad to help with any questions you might have.
Look forward to some pix when you get a chance.

If you haven't already please register on the M Registry.
There is a section for the E28's. Great source of info about the car.

Have a great Holiday.

A stunning looking example - and a rare beauty indeed, judging by the number of owner responses to this thread so far.

Hey Jeff,

RE: Jeff Dutton - Chattanooga TN - WBSDC9303J2875323 - 11/87

Thanks for posting your info.
I know you have been trying to sell this car.
I guess the high mileage has been a problem.
Too bad as the car looks pretty good from the photos I saw.
Can you post a photo here so the owners on this list can see it. They might be able to help you sell it.
If you keep it please consider coming to The Vintage in Winston Salem in May.
Thanks again,
Gary

The tool kit in all North American spec E28 M5s are the same. In other words, your car was delivered with the same tool kit as all other North American spec E28 M5s. There was no variation.

unless I'm seeing a reflection, those tools look like they were coated with something. Maybe some type of gunmetal coating to darken them up. They look nice regardless.

Interesting Louis.

Mine are the normal silver color like all E28's.

There is a product that is used to stop or prevent rust on metal. When you spray it on the metal it turns it a gun metal looking dark color or black.
Looks like the PO might have sprayed these to keep them from rusting.

Not the PO. :laugh:
And they do look nice, "Hey Luis, throw me that 17 - 19 box end". :shock:
I think a great addition to the shadow-line look the rest of the car carries.

Nice pics, btw.
