    Only available the first year I believe. One of the nicest colors (also on early E36-M3) and not sure why BMW ever dropped it. Makes me miss my '03.

    Question regarding M5's

    Very nice.
    I currently have a 88' 735i and am considering an M5 - I realize you are probably biased however, what year do you think is the best M5 as far as looks, performance and of course getting a good deal. Where would you suggest I go to start doing some research and learning what year has what I am looking for? Thanks for your help - enjoy your new ride.

    For the e39 M5's there are only a few minor differ

    Very minor differences between the model years for the e39 M5...

    I was actually looking for a 2003, but came accross this 2000 in excellant condition with VERY low mileage and a very good price, so I jumped on it...

    Post some specific questions here or search the archives...

    www.m5board.com seems to have more activity than this forum, so you might get quicker answers to any questions you have over there...

    Early '00 M5's...Oil consumption>

    was a concern. BMW reworked pistons to correct the problem. My '00M5 is sweet. Search for..........BMW M Registry.com<img src="http://lexam.net/carnut/misc/BMW-M6-web.jpg">[IMG]

    Is it really Avus/Dove?

    Hard to say from a photo, but it looks the same as LeMans/Silverstone. What's the sticker on the shock tower say?

    Beautiful car!

    Yep. Checked under the hood tonight...

    Avus Blue metalic...

    Not sure if it was custom ordered, or maybe they offered avus in 2000 and Lemans in 2001+...

    It is definitely simillar to Lemans... Be interesting to do a side by side comparison sometime...

    Beautiful Car

    Great color combination. I have the same interior on my Titanium Silver M5. I did buy some rubber floor mats for everday commuting to save my M5 set.

    Regular e39 series rubber mats.

    I bought mine from the dealer with the 10% BMWCCA discount. They have two styles. I think they were around $80 for the set of 4. I probably could have got them cheaper, but it was convenient at the dealer. I just put the M5 mats in when I'm taking others out. For the everyday driving, it's the rubber ones.

    Congrats. Beautiful. Get the rubber>>

    floormats. Current BMW mats don't hold a candle to the '80's thick, wool mats. Ah well, if BMW's cutting corners.<img src="http://lexam.net/carnut/misc/BMW-M6-web.jpg">[IMG]

    Ok, what kind of deal did you get? If you don't

    mind. Really nice looking by the way. Definitely would consider one with those kinds of miles and condition.

    No, I don't mind sharing....

    $41,500...

    Very difficult to put a value since there are not really many comparable cars in the market... I was actually looking for a 2003 when I saw this one...

    Anyway, right now there only 10 e39 M5's on auto trader nationwide with less than 15k for all model years... Ave price is $56k... So I think I got a smoking deal... Plus, because it was a private party sale in GA, I paid no sales tax... Also it was one of the colors I was looking for and local...

    And after meeting the seller, I had a very high comfort level that the car was 100% as advertised... A true car enthusiast... Heck, he even called me this week to check up on the car... A real class act.

    Thats is the color I would pic as well,

    and that is a great price. It isn't even broke in. And it looks soooo good compared to the new M5. Have fun with it.
