In Reply to: M5 FS on Ebay / What's the deal? No bids? posted by Mike on September 03, 2001 at 16:02:58:
Mike, If it was the one from Phillips Auto- I bought it. 13,900 miles. It was listed as starting bid at $34,000? No bids, I bought it direct from the dealer for 26K. Found it in the local Auto Trader.The car is perfect except for an egg stain on the roof and ugly MOMO wheels. I actually bought it twice- got so caught up in the "perfect-ness" of the car, brought it home and noticed the stain on the roof! I took it back and paid to unwind the deal. Phillips came back to me- the car was a consignment, got the owner to lower the price 3K, refunded my unwind money, and I bought it again!
I'm getting used to the Clypso Red paint.
I now have a very nice e25 M5 for sale! It's actually faster than the E34 and everyone says cheaper to fix.
