You’re Running Out of Time to Bid on This 1991 BMW M5
The difference between a regular BMW and an M model is that little extra that the company’s performance division puts onto and into its versions of the ultimate driving machines. The 1991 BMW M5 for sale that you see here has it — plus a little “extra extra”.
Before you get too excited, just know that the I6 in this 145,590-mile car hasn’t been upgraded. However, it did have its valves adjusted 6,000 miles ago. According to Bring a Trailer, “Other recent services include a new driveshaft flex joint (giubo), new cruise control cable, new shifter bushings, new A/C condenser and drier, cleaned coolant level sensor and new hood struts.”
The “extra extra” is the bits and pieces that have been added to this clear-titled, straight-bodied, fast 5. It wears “Throwing Star” wheels surrounded by Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. It’s also been lowered on Dinan springs and fitted with Bilstein shocks.
Inside, the stock steering wheel has been replaced by the one from an E36 M3. You might recognize the shift knob from a later 3 Series with the Performance Package code-named ZHP. The seller had the headliner, sunroof shade, and all the pillars recovered in Alcantara. The AC blows cold and has been converted to run on R134.
If you want to be this M5’s new owner, you have about a day to put your bid in. As of right now, $7,000 is the amount to beat.
