Here it goes.

I had a lot more planned for this car, but between work relocation and putting miles on this car, I'd rather pick something that wasn't so hard to find. I was very particular with what I wanted out of an E39 and Alpine White, Mint, and a California-only M5 were all part of the requirements. I paid a premium for it and waited a long time, but it was worth. Hopefully it goes to someone that will also appreciate it just as much, as Alpine White is practically impossible to find.

Anyway, onto the specs:

There are a few minor things that could be done to make this car perfect, which I outlined below along with a realistic cost.

Front Left Swaybar Endlink ($30)
Front tires soon

The car has always been a California car starting it's life in San Francisco, then Irvine, and now Ventura/LA. I'm technically the second owner, and had the car for a little over half a year with about 8k miles. A thorough folder of maintenance records is included as well as a carfax report. The car is a beast, but I just began a new career where I have less and less time to enjoy this, and it feels like a waste of a pristine Alpine M5. The factory amplifier and speakers are all included, but I've upgraded them and added an auxiliary input while keeping the factory navigation intact. In fact, two pairs of factory speakers are included as I thought the OE speakers were just old, but it turns out they just aren't great components to begin with. Anyway, all the wiring I disconnected are labeled, in case you want to revert or further upgrade the audio.

I'm not a fan of dark tint, but I wanted to protect the interior and keep cool during warm weather, which I ironically didn't even get the chance to due to the fact that I haven't even owned the car for a full year. I had 80% ceramic tint installed which protects and keeps the interior cooler than even the darkest tints. The tint comes with a factory warranty and is also less than a month old. The car is also equipped with Evolve's Alpha-N tune specific for this car. It's wired up to run Alpha-N or MAF's, so you can choose which to run. It get's rid of the factory's on/off throttle feel and makes the car much smoother and enjoyable. It also disables the Secondary Air Pump which tends to fail, so there is one less thing to worry about. 91 Octane Shell or Chevron gas was the only thing ever used during my ownership.

The car came with the Stoptech Slotted brakes/pads combination have a slight vibration under minimal engagement which I read a lot of people have. It doesn't change the performance nor has it bothered me enough to change them out as they still have plenty of life left. There is a guy that will repair the dead pixels on the MID the same day that I can refer the new owner to, as well as the service shop (if you are local) to continue all the maintenance work as they are the only ones to service to car. The power steering hose has a small seep. The car also has a pretty mint OEM front windshield, so you don't have to worry about a bead blasted/pitted windshield when the sun hits it. Overall, the car is in really good shape.

It's listed cheaper for forum members but it will also be listed on Autotrader. It would be nice to have this go to a enthusiasts as I can also recommend future mods or answer any questions. I feel the price is fair as is, so please consider not sending that low-ball offer. I'm looking for a buyer that has the cash in hand, as I don't have time for getting this pre-approved, or doing some kind of payment plan. I can provide contact information to the shop that has done all the maintenance during my ownership if you have any technical questions.

Asking price: $18,500

Thank you.
