      Precisely. Worst MY for the E39 M5.

      Cool car though.

          I'm not a vert fan, but I'm digging this whip.

          In other news, the 88 Bronzit 'is' is currently sitting at $14K. That's more than I thought it would end for.

          I'm sure the low mileage is driving the bids.

            A tad late here. Loved my 2001 M5 but what a maintenance nightmare. $1013 for pads and rotors all around. Um no.

                Do them yourself. Way cheaper.

                  I was thinking the same, then looked up the parts cost 0.o Not out of the norm for a shop to do it at ~$1k.

                    Agreed and brakes are so easy to change on pretty much any E chassis

                          Ok, I'll bite. I'm not into the 5 or 7 series. What's the issue with a 2000 vs later?

                            Tails, headlights, some interior bits and I think some mechanical bits.

                            The cosmetic stuff really makes a big difference IMO

                            early e39s are not the best looking

                              ^ Yep - additionally off the top of my head:

                              2000MY vs 2001MY(+)
                              Pre-LCI vs LCI
                              Halogen headlights vs auto-leveling HIDs
                              Rectangular fogs vs round
                              Yellow markers vs clear
                              Yellow rear turn signals vs clear
                              M52TU vs M54 for I6 models
                              2.8L vs 3.0L (I6)*
                              GM transmission vs ZF (I6)
                              Style 5s vs Style 42s for Sport Package (I6)
                              Minor HVAC control differences



                              * remember when model numbers actually corresponded to displacement?
