VEHICLE STORY

Snagged this one up in Sept of 2013 after my Mini decided to imitate the Human Torch. I was thinking of getting an M3 or another Mini, because they feel like big go carts and that's a blast in its self. But, I was convinced that since I was now 30 and need something more sensible, thus the M5 E39 search commenced. Why E39? It was pretty simple for me, I liked the simple upgraded styling, the fact no matter what you will find one with a manual and from what I found on them pretty reliable in the heavy mechanical department. I picked this one up with 78k on it, it had the clutch replaced 10k prior as well and the vanos update already done as well, with a full service history to go along. So anyone that knows BMWs that is huge. The main project for this thing is to fully update it to the 2001-2003 face-lift and maybe a few upgrades might be added as the stocks are need for replacement.
