...any red flags with this (stunning-looking) E39 M5? Current bid is US$3000 with 5 days to go. High-ish mileage (133,000), but it looks remarkably clean for a 17-year-old car. The listing itself is refreshingly coherent, too.

I’m not in the market for any car right now but hope to be within the next year or so, and 2000s super-sedans occupy an irrationally special place in my heart. If I were ready to pull the trigger now, this ad would be stupid tempting—am I missing something?
