FOR SALE: 1 of 524 RHD examples, Macao Blue, fully rebuilt self-levelling suspension, recent £13k expenditure!

EQUIPMENT
Macao Blue Metallic paintwork (250), Extended Silvergrey Nappa leather (0319), 17-inch Throwing Star alloy wheels, Rear spoiler, Shadowline trim, Electric tilt/slide sunroof, Rear sunblind, Auto-dimming mirrors, Electrically adjustable front seats with drivers seat memory, Headlamp wash/wipe, Automatic air conditioning, Alpine cassette radio, Central armrest with CD storage, BMW toolkit, Alloy spare wheel, Spare key.

EXTERIOR
The body is finished in striking Macao Blue Metallic with contrasting Sebring Grey side skirts. The gleaming paintwork presents to an excellent standard all round and is free from any major signs of wear and tear our studio photos really dont do it justice! Glancing along both sides the panels remain perfectly straight with even gaps, and at the front theres barely a stone chip in sight. The rear spoiler has since been professionally removed for a more understated aesthetic, but is included with the sale and can be re-fitted should the new keeper wish.

INTERIOR
The well-appointed M5 cabin boasts extended Silvergrey Nappa leather covering the M sports seats, centre console, door pulls, and glove box lid. Other factory upgrades include fully electric front seats with drivers seat memory, an electric tilt/slide sunroof, and automatic climate control air conditioning. The undamaged grey upholstery is still relatively supple having never been re-connolised, and all the electric adjustments appear to function correctly.

In the footwells youll find clean grey carpets protected by tailored black overmats. Leather trim covers the M Technic steering wheel, gear knob, and handbrake lever, all of which present to a good standard. The switchgear is also in fine fettle and remains feeling solid to the touch. At the rear of the car the vast boot space houses the spare wheel, BMW toolkit, and jack.

ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION
The venerable 3.5-litre straight six (S38B36) idles smoothly up to temperature, sounding great through the M5s twin pipes. The engine bay presents in great original condition with no signs of any damage or poor repair. Better still, over the last 18 months the current owner has quite fastidiously spent an eye-watering £13k renewing many of the cars mechanical components - all carried out by our trusted marque specialist. Recent engine and transmission works include replacing the ancillary drive belts, alternator belt, PAS belt and compressor belt, checking and adjusting all valve clearances, replacing the gearbox selector shaft seal, differential input and output shaft seals, replacing the gearbox mountings, propshaft coupling and centre bearing. The car was also treated to all new engine and heater coolant hoses along with a complete overhaul of the heater and ventilation system. The suspension and underside also received significant attention, full details of which are below.

In addition to all this the car is accompanied by a fantastic maintenance record all stamped in the original service booklet.

WHEELS, TYRES AND BRAKES
The 17-inch throwing star wheels look great and present with only a small amount of curb marking; new front tyres have also just been fitted. More importantly, the underside and suspension have been treated to an extensive refresh recent works include replacing all rear brake, fuel, and hydraulic pipes and hoses, replacing the front dampers and springs, overhauling the rear shock absorbers and struts, and replacing the rear springs, top mounts, rear suspension accumulators, and pressure hoses.

Having had the original self-levelling suspension (SLS) rebuilt to factory standard the car drives just as BMW intended. This system is often permanently deleted when faulty and commonly replaced with a coilover setup, which not only loses the originality but also gives a much harsher ride far less suited to an M5 - pleasingly that's not the case here.

HISTORY FILE
This rare UK example (1 of only 524 in right-hand drive) was first registered in August 1990. It was supplied new by Bridgegate Limited who went on to carry out the running-in inspection at 1,002 miles. The next ten services were all undertaken at BMW, with the remaining entries in the service booklet stamped by independent specialists. The History File is complete with a raft of paperwork from very early on in the cars life. Remarkably the current owner has spent in excess of £13k bringing the car up to his exacting standards, with particular attention paid to the engine, transmission, and self-levelling suspension system - considerable peace of mind for the new keeper! Freshly MOT'd she's good to go.
