I had luck with Craigslist BUT only because the P38 is a cult truck (similar to the E46 and E39 M).

The guy i bought my P38 from had bought/renovated/sold 5 or 6 of them in the last few months and was a very straight shooter and honest guy. He had an active account on the Rover Forum and a very good reputation so I felt confident he wouldn't sell me junk and then run off with the cash (hell, I just wrote him a check for it and drove it home so was rather nervous).

The seller ended up helping me replace the brakes, redo the air compressor for the air suspension, and a bunch of other stuff in the year or so after I bought it from him. To say the least, he was a very good dude.

So I would just make sure that you look for both a car and a person you can comfortably buy. For the E39 M5, I have to imagine that many that are for sale in the area are owned by collectors, enthusiasts.. so you should be able to find someone who will sell you a good car and stand behind it.

I don't understand that part... The cluster I'm assuming.

Searched and learned. $25 DIY fix. I've been dealing with it in my 325 for awhile with the radio. It hates cold weather lol

Bj: Not an issue or i wouldn't be searching for one. I just will bitch a lot lol

E39 has massive pixels, they are quite noticeable when out.

Same common E46 problems on most E39, so not too terrible if you stay on maintenance.

Right on red can only be made after stopping. Pretty plain and simple. She violated the law.

She clearly did. I laugh at people when there's a no turn on red sign and i wait. Have been flipped off many times.

http://baltimore.craigslist.org/cto/3565633557.html e60 m5 anyone?

They were making a big deal about that in our community - people coming around with petitions...I ignore just about anyone that comes to the door except the BCC fire department

the other thing - she is quoted saying no one coming from left and opposite side turning left...well, if one of them made a U-turn on green arrow and they hit her...it would be her fault...I can imagine that whiny b1tch would be claiming she stopped to ins co

If I am not in a hurry, I like to stop at red lights and NOT turn right on red. It is optional, it is not law that you must turn right on red if legal and no cars are coming.
