    E39 M5 is on my short, short list. It's only companion is an E46 M3 since the wife loves them so much.

    But dat M5 waffleswaffleswaffles......... drool.
    Both cars are at the best price you can probably get them for now. I've been looking at some S54 powered cars also, but I cant decide between a Z4M or a E46.

    Looking at E39 M5's and they're all 18-20k.
    This started as a "cheap convertible" idea, but is now growing in scope.

    OTOH, E39 M5's are great cars, and will most likely appreciate as long as I do good repairs and keep it in good cosmetic and mechanical order.
    Plus that V8 sound.

    Just glad I have been doing this long enough to do a quick idea in the noggin. Some of the questions are so generic and have a huge range of cost, it gets annoying. "How much is a swap in an e30?" "How much for a built m20?" "How much to install a roll cage?". You would think people who are building cars have at least an inclination of what they want.

    OTOH, it's bitten me before when the car is just dropped off and they tell me what they want, trusting my honesty. Well, caged an e46 that wasn't quite prepped, and had some work -arounds like keeping A/C, BCM happy, power windows etc so the car could evolve from street to race. Handed him an invoice, and he says "That's it?"....I was thinking I was overcharging....grrr
    I always try to be as specific as I can, or give as much information as I can, while asking for help.

    Also, in regard to selling, I've gotten a lot of people asking for various VIN reports for the KTM, most are pretty personable even asking the right questions, it's a new scam that's hard to detect until they send a link to some website and ask me to provide a VIN report.

GIMME MY MONEY SO I CAN BUY CAR PARTS!
