Mid Week Match-Up: Rob’s Daily

Today we’ve got a special Mid Week Match-Up request from friend of DT Rob who is relocating to the Carolinas (from sunny SoCal) and is looking for a story manual transmission daily driver for under $25k.

More requirements from Rob — needs to be manual gearbox.  All wheel or rear wheel. Any make any model.  Sporty. 0-60mph less than 6 sec is good, but handling is more important.  No emissions requirements in his jurisdiction. Prefer factory stock, but small mods. 2 door or 4 door. Small back seat that could fit a kid or two is a must. Any age of vehicle — but an older car would need to be restored (no rust buckets or projects!). 1991 earlier could be grey market.  

I am going to suggest this 2000 BMW M5 here on eBay offered for $17,500 buy-it-now or make-offer located in Fullerton, CA.  I’ll even give it a test drive and clear up any unneeded carbon on the valves if needed!

See a better car for Rob?
