2003 BMW M5
Very Rare and hard to find 2003 BMW M5 extremely low Miles, one owner, Clean Carfax and localy owned and serviced right here in the Bay Area.
First seen at the 1998 Geneva International Motor Show, the E39 M5 marked several key changes from previous E28 and E34 models, even beyond the switch from straight-six to V8 power. For example, where its two predecessors were largely hand-built on separate production lines at M GmbH in Garching, the E39 M5 was assembled right alongside standard 5ers in BMWs Dingolfing plant near its Munich headquarters. Additionally, with nearly 20,500 built between October of 1998 and June of 2003, the E39 M5 is significantly less scarce than the E28 and E34, of which 2,200 and 12,000 were made, respectively.
Styling remains a major component of desire with the E39 M5, which built upon the strengths of the timelessly handsome base car with M-specific front and rear fascias, sill extensions, quad exhaust tips, clear turn signal lenses, aero mirrors and a delete-option trunk lid lip spoiler. Black Shadowline window trim was standard, though the chrome package of standard 5ers could be requested at no additional cost.
Though based on the M62 as seen in the 540i, the M5s S62 V8 was quite a different animal in most regards, upping displacement from 4.4 to 4.9 liters, compression ratio from 10:1 to 11:1, and switching to individual throttle bodies for each cylinder. Other major changes included the use of modified cylinder heads, hollow, high-lift and duration camshafts (with VANOS phasing on both intake and exhaust), and dual scavenging oil pumpsone for each bank, activated when DSC sensors detect lateral acceleration greater than 0.9g in order to prevent starvation during hard cornering.
