Yeah, the four spoke steering wheel is weird.

I would expect to see rear foglights if it was a euro spec car. These typically aren't removed when cars are federalized. An easy way to tell for sure would be to look at the B pillar. Imported cars should have a sticker with details of the importer and importation date next to the VIN plate. Sure is a sharp looking E39 regardless!
The M package was only available on 2001-2003 E39s (and in the U.S. ONLY on 2003s). The M package never included an M5 cluster. That alone scares me - how do we know the mileage is accurate? Did they swap out the entire cluster or just the gauge faces?
The color combination is amazing though. The leather really works with wood trim and I normally despise wood trim. The car needs matching headliner and a/b/c pillars though (black suede would look nice if you couldn't match the seats). The color combo alone has me wanting the car really, really badly. If it was a 2001-2003 E39 I would be much more seriously interested (updated tail lights among many other improvements). The price is a bit high for a 1998.
That thing is GORGEOUS tho...
