1988 M5 in my driveway! Help!

Because I'm the motorhead in my circle of friends (and I'm retired), I get asked to help friends fix, buy or sell their cars. Anyway, a woman friend in my Tai Chi class just lost her husband. He was a motorhead I never got to meet, who drove an all original 2 owner, California, '88 M5. She understandably can't stand having it around, so I brought it here and have begun running ads for her. Most callers don't get the significance of this car. If anyone knows a good home for this collectible car, contact me here or PM.

If only I had the space and bucks.............

That's a great historic car. I hope you find a home for it with someone who truly
understands what it is. There are very few of those around.

Right! I hope a true BMW lover can give it a good home to honor my friend's husband. The right car will always attract the right buyer.

Yours is a nice M, Torque. We have my friend's M5 advertised for $9800. She would probably take $9000 from a real enthusiast. If you or anyone you know is interested, PM me and I'll email more info and pictures.

Thanks for the compliment (I wish it was an M though ... lowly 318i sadly).

Anyway, 9000-10000 is not a bad price for a e28 m5 assuming it's as nice as it appears in the (smallish) pictures.

This is a historic car so you should consider putting it in one of their websites. Just a suggestion.
