Ex-Paul Walker & Roger Rodas AE Collection 2000 BMW M5 for Sale

For many BMW and auto enthusiasts in general, myself included, the M5 E39 is the…M3 E30 of the 5-Series range – the quintessential German performance saloon, if you prefer. Fairly low mileage examples are always a treat, even more so when they look like this cosmetically spotless 2000 M5 (just look at that interior).

However, this car has another ace up its sleeve as it was previously purchased from the AE Collection of the late Paul Walker and Roger Rodas back in 2011. Whether this matters and more importantly, adds to the value of the car is debatable. For some, it might be the reason to own it, for others, it may be nothing more than a conversation opener when you’re with your buddies or fellow car aficionados.

The V8-powered M5 seems to have been taken care of throughout its life by all five owners of the car, as stated in the eBay ad. It has 51,250 miles (82,461 km) on the odometer, which by the way, was replaced together with the entire instrument cluster due to the known issue of dead pixels that plague all BMWs of this era.

The buyer has set an undisclosed reserve price, with the highest bid standing at $19,600 at the time we uploaded this post.

eBay Seller’s Description:

“Up for sale consideration is this low mileage 2000 BMW M5. This vehicle was previously purchased from the AE Collection (Paul Walker & Roger Rodas collection) back in 2011. This is a rare opportunity to own a car from their auto collection. I mention this only to offer the potential buyer the ultimate confidence in regards to this vehicle’s history. All of the vehicles at AE are hand picked and they are some of the most tasteful models from today’s market.

This M5 has been consistently serviced at BMW dealerships since that purchase and I have been advised by BMW that it was previously a CPO (certified pre owned) BMW. This should give the buyer a solid piece of mind, knowing that everything was serviced on this vehicle at the correct service intervals. This is a key note for all BMW M vehicles as they are very sensitive to maintenance at the recommended intervals. This M5 does have the updated pistons that BMW changed from the earlier M5’s. This update corrected the “burning oil” issue found on those earlier models. As a result, it will take either the 5w30 Mobil 1 Synthetic motor oil or the previous thicker oil from Castrol that was exclusive to the E39 M5. The tires are the recommended Michelin models and they still have a long life on them. I had purchased a new set back in 2011 at about 40k miles.

This M5 has no known mechanical issues. It runs and performs just as it should. It passes smog and all of the electrical components perform as they should. The clutch is still original and very healthy. The interior is like new, and the exterior paint still shines and feels like it left the showroom floor yesterday. This was very well taken care of by the team at AE and I have only continued the love and appreciation for this car. We are considering the sale to support our growing family, and thus I have very little time to drive and appreciate this car.”
