The last real driver’s car!

As we move closer and closer to fully automated driving, there are some who still want the experience of driving a performance car that’s not fully operated by the latest computers and technology. This is the car for those people. This is hands down the most pleasurable driving experience I have ever had behind the wheel. Is it the fastest? Absolutely not. Is it the most luxurious? Not by today’s standards. But a well sorted e39 M5 will put a smile on your face every time you get behind the wheel. Not to mention the good examples are appreciating in value lately.


The Beast

I've had this car for 3 months and no issues to speak of. The vehicle was a garage queen when purchased and will remain one until I have it. It never fails to put a samile on my face and is an absolute joy to drive. It completely eats the road up. I never understood that comment until I owned one. It is the Beast!



Power and fun yet sensible for the family. It is the best overall benefits for a used car, good looking, powerful, fast, safety, roomy interiors and good for the family.
