Gents, I've lurked here and asked questions for the past few years. I have been looking for the past few years for a nice example. I pulled the trigger one one recently. It came from Japan and is registered as a 1995. I will follow-up with the vin a bit later.

Pearl Black/ Anthracite
Almost 65,XXX Km.
Options per vin decoder:
Sunshade
Heated Seats
Keyless Entry

The car just came back from a pretty hefty maintenance. All fluids chained including the transmission and differential. New SLS pump, new radiator, new coil packs, new a/c compressor, all filters.

Car (cross fingers) seems to have been well looked after. It rides extremely well and the suspension feels tight and it runs and shifts better than any I have driven before. I look forward to putting some miles on it and sorting any remaining issues. It goes well with my 2010 911S in the background of one of the pics. Excited to be a larger part of the board.

Any members in Dubai up for a get together?

The work was actually done by a master tech from Al Ain. Now that its in Dubai any future work will most likely be done by SilberArrows unless you know a better shop?

Welcome aboard,

Nice find it looks like a great car. It's a 95 but not a limited? Love the Evos.

I'm a little curious with a handle like "HoustonM3" where did you originate from?

Good Luck with it.

Take Care

I'm from Houston Texas and my first car was an e36 BMW M3 therefore the handle. I'm an Expat in Dubai.

That is a beautiful car you've got there. Looks like one of the cleanest E500E's in Dubai! Myself and Volchok005 have 500E's although his is being painted right now and mine has the interior out for restoration. Would love to get together when the cars are rolling in a few weeks. Volchok005 knows a guy in Abu Dhabi with a large collection of E500E's plus an E60 who we went to visit last week and he's also looking forward to a cruise when our cars are running.

Btw, no affiliation but Silberarrows is a great garage. I know the guys very well and highly recommend it. Seen a fair few E500E's and SL500's there too.
