    Right. He traded it in. I know it is the car becau

    because I called back the dealer in Illinois and asked him to check the center console for a crack in the wood. Definitely the car. The crazy part is he contacted me last week about the car and said he was waiting for it to arrive. I live 60 miles from were the car came from. Damn. Now if I could just get a hold of t-man.

    must be this one --

    He's selling some take-off wheels and other parts: Parts for Sale

    Car was listed here:
    For Sale

    You said a dealer called you? Sounds like he traded-in, and maybe you can contact him directly and find out how much he got. :)

    name sounds familiar -- might have already sold it

    Is that IL or LI (Long Island)? I'm checking the M5 board for what I think I saw in the past week or so ...'01 M5

    Thanks Ed. I just found out that this was a member

    car!!! I am on a few lists looking for a low mile M5 and was called by a dealer in IL about this car. When I checked out the pictures I noticed that the car is the same one for sale on this board last month by T-Man. Do you know the car? Or the person?

    of course

    one month after buying that car you'll see someone post about how he/she bought an '02 with less miles for less money.

    but that's a fair price for a near perfect condition, one-owner car with all records and no stories. if you were willing to wait, shop regionally and accept a little more mileage, you'd probably find something in the range of $35-36k. It really comes down to how much you like this particular car and your personal timelime, which only you can answer.

    btw, that's a very sharp looking 540. good luck.

    Could I do better?

    I am looking at a 2001 Silverstone with 24,000 miles one owner trade all books records ect.... $39,000. Should I wait a few months or jump in?


    Thank you for your opinions.
