If looking at a car and wondering how much damage did it have that the whole car has had to be primed turns your head. Cool.

So all cars have to be damaged to have matte paint? Mate you are too cool for us, just too cool.

This one at Adelaide BMW has been there for about 18 months now - loaded with some of the more desirable M5 features but they can't seem to get rid of it surprisingly

http://www.carsales.com.au/dealer/details/AGC-AD-17028827

- Low km's
- Has the Competition package  (423kW up from 412kW)
- Has the (minor) LCI update
- Price has just been dropped by $20k

Not sure why it won't sell, maybe there's more to it?  Looks like a good buy for those in the market

Easy answer to that one. BMW decided to introduce a stripped out version that actually was still pretty well equipped and dropped the price in a big way. They destroyed the resale for the early cars. Thank goodness I'd just sold mine. The dealer who bought it ended up offering it on the market for less than they paid me.

What doesn't help that car is its drab looks, the colour is boring but livable, however when mated with black wheels and black grille surround it looks plain.

I agree, first thing I'd do to it is give it silver wheels like the car below. Changes the look completely

The introduction of the M5 Pure (as MHH alluded to) and the fact there's a new generation 5-Series coming in the next 12 months doesn't help either, but still surprising that this one has been on the market so long

Tesla. It's a much better city car. The M5 was only ever happy on fast country roads.
