    Looking for E34 M5 under 40,000 miles

    I am looking to purchase an E34 M5 with under 40,000 miles--the less miles the better.

    Please advise if you are aware of any for sale.

    TIA

    go for a Euro M5

    If you're going to spend that kind of money, get a 3.8l Euro M5. There aren't too many of them in the U.S. (less than 100 I'd guess) but they do go up for sale regularly. Most of the Euros were pretty cherry when they were brought over (Germans are hard on their cars, so most are not worth the trouble), and so are likely to have less than 100k miles on the clock. You could find a nice one for $30k. If you really want to spend, seek out the 94-95 models with the 6 speed, N'ring suspension, M parallel wheels, and big floating rotor brakes. They also have the EDC front suspension which is cool, but the dampers are like $2k apiece and most will need it. The 3.8l does have a crankshaft bearing issue tho, so investigate that.

    I've got a US M5 with 99k miles and it's held up really well. Most have been babied. The S38 is a leaky motor, so any car with super low miles has spent a lot time sitting with the seals drying out.

    want a really rare car - go for the Touring. Only 891 made and none sold in the US.
