    Thanks, man! I found someone.

    I'm about to make a really bad decision so I wanted someone to see that decision for me. It has 10 cylinders, two-tone paint, ventilation in the front bumper, every single light on the dash is glowing but it also has a proper transmission in the middle. I've officially lost it if I do this.

    Well, you might see it then. Someone is going to see it tonight for me and if it checks out, I'm wiring money to the seller and someone is going to store it there for me until it heads back to Deutschland.

    While yes, about the stupidest thing I'll do if I do it. 142k miles and apparently original rod bearings, in other words explosion waiting to happen.

    I sent my final offer, to say the condition is bad would be an understatement.

    Well... if anyone can properly sort out this neglected M5 out is it you. Bringing her back to Deutschland is a good start and I'm sure there are many tuner shops that can help you get everything you need to get this car back in proper shape... good luck!

    Thanks for believing in me!

    If it was a smart or dumbest move ever, we'll find out in few months. I just sent a deposit for it and tomorrow I'm wiring the rest, but here the gist:

    Silver grey 2007 E60 M5 with a 6-speed manual, 1 of 1.366 produced only for the US market. 1 of 155 in that color combo. 4 owners, clean title but accident on Carfax in 2014 (fender bender) in the front, 142k miles, no service history other than what's on Carfax, every single light on the dash is shining like a bright star, misfires and runs poorly but no knocking noise.

    In other words, the very definition of a basket case. Pics.























    But, I bought it for $6k which should make it the cheapest of its kind in the USA so it'll be one of those videos. Gonna Hoovie it up.
    Of course, by the time it lands in my yard and shipping, customs, tax... and other fun stuff are added, the final price will be much higher but it will be a rarity in Europe.

    It's the longest video I made to date but I'm pretty happy how it turned!
