The BMW E39 generation M5 (2000 to 2003 model years) was the pinnacle of M5 evolution. It was borne from an era of BMW design that was both classic and modern. The E39 M5 was significantly more powerful, advanced, and modern than its E34 predecessor, yet was the last of the iconic traditional designs before Chris Bangle and Adrian van Hooydonk’s awkwardly styled E60. Simply put, the E39 M5 was the last of the classics. It came from a time before the modern “throw-away” BMW, a time when the M5 was also offered exclusively with a manual transmission. It was refined enough for civilized daily driving and can even deliver over 25 mpg when driven carefully. It was (and still is) the supercar that does it all. It can accommodate four adults in comfort while rewarding its driver with astonishing performance.

Summary

 exterior photo

This Lemans Blue over Black Heritage leather 2000 BMW E39 M5 is an excellent example of an E39 M5. Lemans Blue is one of the best colors in the E39 M5 color pallet and it looks fantastic over the Black Heritage leather interior. In addition to the plentiful standard features, it was optioned with fold down rear seats and a rear spoiler delete. It is largely unmolested and most importantly has been fastidiously maintained to impeccably high standards. It was originally delivered by BMW of Seattle in May of 2000 and remained there with the first two owners and 75,000 miles. The third owner purchased it in 2018 and reportedly did an extensive round of maintenance including overhauling the cooling system, rebuilding the VANOS Units, valve cover gaskets, fuel pump, rebuilding the rear differential, rear axles, and rear wheel bearings. The current owner was a good friend of his and brought it to Colorado. They replaced the DSC module, rebuilt the headlight adjustors, and replaced some of the engine bay cowlings. There are receipts supporting the majority of the work in the records binder and we gave it a clean bill of health on our inspection. As it sits, this is a great example of an E39 M5 in a desirable color combination with excellent maintenance history and at a reasonable price point.

Exterior

The mild climate of the Northwest has kept the exterior in excellent condition. The Lemans Blue paintwork is original with the exception of the passenger side door, rocker, trunk lid, and the passenger side rear rocker panel. The reason for the paintwork is not reported on the Carfax and a paint gauge report is included in the records. There are typical small chips and scratches typical of age and mileage, but overall there are no glaring imperfections. There is no rust underneath. All trim is present and in great shape. The headlights are clear and crack free, although the lenses do have some pitting. The fog lights also have moderate pitting; side markers, and taillights are all clear and crack-free. The windshield is free of cracks and chips; it does have minor pitting. The wheels have some curb rash, and all have some chips and scratches. They are wrapped with Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ tires with good tread remaining and 2018 DOT dates.

Interior

The interior is also in excellent shape. There are no odors and it has never been smoked in. The carpet is free of stains or rips and is protected by factory BMW floor mats. The seat leather is soft and supple to the touch; the only wear is minor creasing on the driver’s outer bolster. All seat functions work, including the seat heaters; there is no seat twist. There is some typical creasing on the outer driver’s seat bolster. The dashboard is clean, and the airbag cover is not warped. The steering wheel is good shape. The instrument cluster does not have any failed pixels, and neither do the navigation screen and HVAC displays. The early tape deck / NAV screen has a certain early 2000s charm to it. It can also be easily upgraded to the later style NAV screen if desired. The BMW Premium sound with Logic7 is fantastic with only the driver’s side tweeter not performing 100%. There are no check codes on the onboard computer and no engine, DSC, or ABS warning lights illuminated. All power functions, seat motors, seat heaters, and the power rear sunshade mechanism work as they should. The door locks and window regulators work and function quietly. The sunroof operates smoothly. The heat blows warm and the air conditioning blows cold. One key, the rear cargo net, and the owners’ manuals are included in the sale.

Mechanical

The maintenance history is the most important factor in any E39 M5, and this example has extensive long term and recent maintenance history. Lots of costly and complicated items have been addressed including the cooling system, rear differential, VANOS units, and small odds and ends that add up quickly. S62 fires on command, idles smoothly, and pulls strongly to redline. It has no VANOS rattle or lifter noise. There are no fluid leaks or drips; the only things we noted during our inspection were small typical seeps at the transmission case half and the oil drain plug. None are in need of attention; lift shots are included in the picture gallery. There are no SES or “trifecta” ABS and DSC lights. The clutch does not slip and the transmission shifts smoothly. The driveline, differential, and wheel bearings are quiet with no vibrations. The brakes are excellent. Like any M5, this example will need continued preventative maintenance and repairs, but it deserves to be maintained to the high standards that have made it so nice.
