This is a 2001 BMW M5 Touring built by the seller. He started with a 2001 525iT wagon shipped from Texas that was originally a California car bought new at Beverly Hills BMW with 176k miles and a 2003 e39 M5 donor car from Nevada with 80k miles. He then swapped the engine and all associated drivetrain parts including the gearbox, differential and axles, front and rear subframes, and full m5 interior from multiple m5 donor vehicles. (except for the back seat) brand new OEM front and rear M5 bumper covers. The motor, gearbox and differential were completely resealed and all removed parts from the M5 were refreshed or replaced with original BMW OEM parts before installation. The brakes were also carried over from the donor M5 with all new associated parts, including stainless steel brake lines and OEM rotors and pads. All the M5 components bolted into the 525iT chassis. The mechanical part of the build was done by Nick Trapp and Brian Marks who successfully built an e39 M5 wagon that sold at auction for $72k. The final electronics and stock tune were done by Chris Gerber’s shop, G3 Automotive Solutions in Raleigh, and Bob Bishop with Stage Fabrication in Youngsville, NC.
The exterior color is BMW Titansilber metallic. The M5 exterior modifications include the donor M5 side mirrors. The original hood was resprayed due to rock chips. The suspension modifications replaced the stock M5 struts with adjustable KW V1 coil overs with front and rear M5 sway bars retained, with all four fender wells rolled for more tire clearance to give the wagon a lower stance. This M5 wagon has the stock OEM header and catalytic converters from the donor m5 with dual resonators and electronically controlled cutout exhaust on one side and Magnaflow muffler on the driver side with quad exhaust tips. The Wagon rolls on a staggered set of Factory Style 65 M5 newly refinished by Prince wheels with new Michelin tires. New OEM/Hella facelift euro xenon headlights were installed.

The complete M5 interior including door cards, leather center console, M5 steering wheel with brand new airbag from BMW, as well as m5 sun visors are carried over from another with Silverstone black and grey leather seating with the Nussbaum dark wood accent trim in excellent condition. The rear seat was redyed to match the M5 seating. The M5 cluster was retained from the donor m5 and was repaired and refreshed by Paul with Pixels in Charlotte, NC. The interior also retained all M5 Alcantara A pillars, as well as a custom Alcantara headliner. The manual 6-speed shifter is bone stock, with all bushings and parts replaced to feel like new. The factory OEM clutch and all associated parts are also brand new and replaced during installation. The rear windows sunshades were ordered directly from Europe and installed.

This M5 wagon conversion was completed by expert mechanics and craftsmen with a “no expense spared” mentality. It is fully sorted with no gremlins and all gauges and electronics work as new. The only performance modification consisted of KW V1 coil overs. The rest of the car is stock M5 and 525iT. This is a reliable driver’s car in excellent mechanical condition with complete service records of work completed and new parts added. It is an expensive conversion that cannot be replicated for this price.
