This post was originally published on this site

This 1991 BMW M5 is finished in Sterling Silver over gray leather and powered by a 3.6-liter S38 inline-six paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox. The car has been the recipient of numerous modifications to the suspension and braking systems as well as a custom sound system reported to cost in excess of $10k. The seller is a certified BMW factory tech who owns a specialty shop, and has logged 7k miles behind the wheel in his seven-year ownership. This E34 M5 is offered with spare parts, receipts from new, and a clean New Hampshire title in the seller’s name.

The Sterling Silver finish is shown up close in several photos below and the seller reports no accidents or damage during his ownership. Four new exterior door handles have been installed, and new reflector headlights have been fitted along with factory Euro mirrors.
