What should an 88 M5 Cost

Hey guys, so this weekend I was at this place where i store my boat and I noticed an 1988 e28 M5 (is that the right code, i refrenced the roundel to make sure i tried to get it right) in there for storage. The owner of the storage place said he though the guy would probably sell, it and It got me thinking. I am just wondering what something like this should cost, because if I could get a deal on it I might turn around and sell it and try to make some money. The body looked to be in good shape with a few chips. The interior the front seats looked a little abused but nothing to bad. I would say it has probably been sitting in storage for at least a year so I dont know if there would be any problems from it just sitting as well. What do you guys think and Should i get this guys contact info and see what he would want for the car, and what should I offer if its a good deal.

They don't all come in Black, that is the Model T Ford you are thinking of.

One has just sold down here for $35,000 in mint condition from the car club. It was Red, 1 of 200 RHD. Great cars.

I know that factory, in America, the e28 m5 was "any color you want, as long as it's black."

In US, the only color was black. How rare is the euro version of that M5? What are the spec differences between the US and euro version?

euro is 286 hp US is 256 the euro i hear is also like 200 lbs lighter.

euros are pretty rare, but you will know if it is or not, simply by the price differance.
