    Hi all i have the chance to purchase a BMW M5 (05 REG) 27500 miles for what i deem to be cheap, ive test driven it and it drives so smooth no knocks, bangs or grinding noises, it has full BMW S/H

    My question being what is the market value at the moment for one of these?

    Regards

    Jamie

    I think I'd be looking for advice on a M specific forum, these are great cars but I can't imagine you'd want to buy a bad one! I assume it would be an early E60?

    Value wise all I can add is an online search in the normal places.

    Best place for evaluations is to look on autotrader and pistonheads to see what they go for? 05 reg you say?, check if it sneaks under the £400 taxband also!

    whats it up for ? mate, there are a shed load of ringers out there right now in the 4x4 market, take it down to your local BMW main dealer and let them loot at it for £150 to make sure its not ringed.

    How is buying an M5 an investment? Do you plan to keep it years in storage or something? Personally just save your money, there's much less risk for you that way.

    Ah i see! Makes sense now, just do your home work before you sink £8500 into it, you don't want to make a loss!

    Sounds cheap for a V10 supercar! I'm sure a search on Pistonheads and Autotrader would soon tell you.
