Vehicle History
The M5 E39 to be sold at the National Stadium Auction is one of the last pre facelifted cars to leave the Dingolfing factory. The car arrived to Poland from France, where it had its paint refurbrished. Following this, a very meticulous detailing work was carried on by Polish specialists, to give the M5 an almost new appearance. On top of being great outside, the interior is preserved in an outstanding shape. On the engine side, car has only covered 140 000 kilometers so far, and has multiple service records. For now only the vanos system will require servicing soon, which is a standard process for any S62B50 engine. The car has a Supersprint exhaust system which adds more sonority to the engine.
