1990 BMW M5

Selling my beloved M5.
This particular example started its life in Japan. It had reached 53k miles before it was brought over to Canada in 2005. When the car arrived, it had bad head gasket, which is common with Japanese imports and the paint was quite tired. The previous Canadian owner rebuilt the motor, a complete overhaul was performed on the head with a Port and Polish, as well as replacing the rod bearings while upgrading to the S50 timing chain. The original pistons, connecting rods and cylinder walls were completely intact and were thus reused. This was alldone at 86k miles on the odometer (53k miles) by EC Automotive Machining in Edmontonfor which I have the receipt.
The car was repainted in original GlanzSchwartz color with matching lowers body panels. Also replaced was the radiator, alternator, fuel filter, brake pads and rotors, spark plugs, belts.
I bought the car last November from the ownerin Canada and drove it personally from Montreal to New York city and registered it with no issues. The car has a clean NY title and zero rust. In the last few months I have replaced the idle air control valves and did an oil change with Liqui Moly 10W60 and did a brake fluid flush, i have the receipt.
However the car is not perfect. It is missing a small piece on the driver side bottom door which I have shown in one of the photos. It can easily be replaced and painted. The rear driver side window regulator is acting up sometimes, its on it way out and will need to be changed but it still works, very common for these cars.During the winterthe battery had died completely and it wouldn't unlock.The key trick from the forumswas performed toopen it, so now the central locking system needs to be reset. I've heard it's a simple procedure but I just never got to it. The radio wiring had been setup to work with the upscale Japanese Nakamichi brand and those radios are difficult to find. I never restored the oem wiring to make the CD43 work sincethe S38 sounds so good when revving it, I never cared to change it.
To be noted, the car has a freshly reupholstered 370mm M Tech II steering wheel, custom suede door panels with rare euroblack wood trim, driver side glove box, suede shift boot, a rare originalCD43 radio, rare factory extendedleather stitched center console, brand new original HELLA Fog lights are on the car. Tires are Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 with of course forged squared Throwing Stars. The engine pulls very hard to the redline as expected. There are no rips or tears in the leather. Also The rear SLS has been deleted and replaced with Bilstein shocks all around and the A/C works and is ice cold.This is my 4th E34 in the last 3 years. I have now an E38 and have been enjoying it a lot, the M5 rarely gets driven so I decided to sell it, especially that I moved to California and the car is currently at a close friend of mine's home in New York. The reserve price is very reasonable.
I would not hesitate to drive the car anywhere.
The chassiscurrently has only92,546 Kilometers....which is 57k miles, might go up slightly as the car is still driven occasionally.

Payment method of the balance after the Paypal deposit will be cash or certified cashier's check.
NOTE: The pictures were taken a couple weeks ago when the car had clear aftermarket DEPO tail lights, which have since been replaced with the original BMW HELLA amber tail lights and will be sold with the car.
