I Bought & Fixed the Cheapest V10 BMW E60 M5 6-speed In The World - Project Raleigh: Part 1

  • Published on 5 months ago

    M539 Restorations

    Runtime: 32:27

    Naturally aspirated V10 paired with a manual gearbox - does it get any better? Yes, if your garage is 5 minutes away from derestricted Autobahn. I bought the most "reliable" BMW and started fixing on it, it'll be a while before this astonishing car is ready to hit the Autobahn as it needs to pass German inspection first but follow along as I throw money at it and get it back into the shape it deserves to be.

I was born in Germany, so now I am very surprised....do German people speak English on the road as well or the truck driver is a bilingual like the author of the video? If they speak German, I will thinking to go back at home

No surprise on the Christmas lights on the dash cause that’s how the US used car market is look like. Once the car is running out of warranty it’s just getting worse after each every owner. They have that stupid Kelly Blue Book thing what they keep following and as the car’s value is going down their willingness is going down as well to put any money into the repairs. I would not recommend to import any of them because the way how the things are going overthere. I saw many times while i lived there people are putting the lowest and cheapest gas into their premium german cars at the local supermarket’s gas station because the store gives a few cents off/ gallon after each $100 being spent. Not to mention the quality of their gas.

TYVM Nice vid and lovely car as usual We bought one for 50 err did we already have the euro back then? no idea... It lasted us all the way to berlin to party for a weekend nonstop. Only broke down a few kilometers before we made it back to our hometown. Even paying another 50 bucks for a taxi from where we simply left the car back to home we still made the deal of our lifes^^ Less than a train ticker wouldve cost PER person and we were 5 ppl. We didnt even pay cash for the car but well lets say in a rather questionable kind of currency. Just glad the cops never stopped us bc that wouldve been it for us.

I like watching “This week with cars” . Steve on there is another expert who makes complicated work look easy. But Our friend here is doing way more than the average mechanic and stripping bits down which no one expects anyone to do. What a skill and working on great cars and not old rust buckets. Cars that have gone wrong and defied more average talents to simply consign the car to the crusher. Rescued and brought back to life

It's not BS, this was the cheapest at the time and still probably is. Not sure what he bought, but this one is clean title and with a manual gearbox! Nothing about it is "bullshit" and you can't compare it with SMG cars and salvage titles.
