I've always felt that the best era for BMW was the early 2000s, when BMW was making gorgeous cars with excellent lines, great performance, beautiful interiors and wonderful engines. A lot of people agree with me, which is why BMWs from this era seem to be increasing in value -- and today I'm showing off the five best BMWs from the early 2000s currently listed for sale on Autotrader.

2001 BMW 740i - $8,880

The "E39" BMW 7 Series, which was made from 1995 to 2001, is the best-looking 4-door sedan ever made -- and the "M Sport" models, which were offered in 2000 and 2001, were the best of the best, with gorgeous wheels and a perfect look. I especially prefer short-wheelbase "M Sport" models, which this one is -- and it's currently offered with 123,000 miles by Mudarri Motor Sports in the Seattle area for $8,880.

2000 BMW M Coupe - $29,995

The BMW M Coupe is one of the most interesting BMW models of all time, as it was essentially a high-performance hatchback version of the popular Z3 Roadster. This M Coupe uses the less powerful "S52" engine, with 240 horsepower, which was replaced in 2001 by a 315-hp "S54" powerplant -- but I selected it anyway because I love this color, which perfectly fits the car. This M Coupe is offered with just 52,000 miles for $29,995 by Elite Motors in Virginia Beach.

2002 BMW M5 - $21,550

The "E39" BMW M5 is becoming a highly sought-after collectible, with many people believing it to be the best M5 ever created -- the perfect combination of right sizing, an excellent interior, handsome styling and an analog driving experience. This 2002 M5 is finished in blue with a black interior, and it's traveled just shy of 90,000 miles; it's currently offered by Bobby Rahal Motorcar Company in the Pittsburgh area for $21,550.

2002 BMW X5 4.6is - $5,995

The original BMW X5 doesn't have much of a following, but it was one of the great BMWs of the early 2000s -- a simple, sporty luxury crossover with a clean design and excellent sizing. Although there was no "M" version of this X5, the powerful 4.6is stood in for an X5M, boasting 340 hp and a 6.5-second 0-to-60 time. This particular X5M is finished in beautiful Estoril Blue, and it's offered with 143,000 miles by Hilbish Ford in Kannapolis, North Carolina, for just $5,995.

2001 BMW Z8 - $208,900

The BMW Z8 was the pinnacle of the early 2000s BMW experience, with its gorgeous styling and big V8 up front. The closest "modern BMW" has ever gotten to a supercar, the Z8 has appreciated a bit in value over the years -- no surprise, as it's certainly a special car, and it's quite rare. This 2001 Z8 is offered by Marshall Goldman Motors in the Cleveland area with 5,600 miles, and it's listed for $208,900 -- big money, of course, but very much in line with other Z8 models.
