Abandoned 2000 BMW E39 M5 Restoration
I just bought a 2000 M5 for $500. It runs and has 79200 miles on the clock. It has been sitting under a tree for two years. Best of all it has a complete Dinan Exhaust and Intake. I dont know what that is worth. It was parked and never run after the owner rearended someone just hard enough to crack the front bumper. The brake master cylinder went dry on fluid and he tapped the car in front of him. There is certainly a leak somewhere. I couldnt pass it up at this price. I had it towed to a local mechanic I like and have him looking at the mechanicals to make sure the engine is worth fixing up.
