Used Car of the Day: 1991 BMW M5

Today's used car of the day is one of just 508 ever built. Yet it's priced by the seller at a reasonable $45,000.

Some of this is undoubtedly due to its age. Still, this Alpine White/Nappa Grey leather is a hand-built, early production car with a build date of 06/90. Maybe it's a bit of a bargain at this price.

The seller claims a clean CarFax, no accidents, and no rust. He or she also notes that most key features, including the engine and transmission, are original.

Even the radio and CD player are factory, according to the seller.

For forty-five grand you can get into a clean example of a rare BMW. Sounds like a deal to us.
