HELP my E39 M5 is making a weird noise

Posted 9th February 2013 at 10:48 PM by JBAR650
SO my 2000 M5 broke down the other day and I had it towed to my house. When it broke down it basically stalled out and refused to drive. After I got it home a couple days later I went to turn it on and it started making a really loud rattling noise from the engine. If any one has any ideas or suggestions please feel free to tell me what you think. Thanks a lot. Below is a video of the sound.

Need help - want buy an e39 - need service records

Posted 28th January 2013 at 05:24 PM by Assess this
I have read others having issues with obtaining service records. I am finally ready to take on caring for and purchasing a 2000 m5. The issue is that there are no service records because I am getting it from a non-BMW dealer. The local BMW that it was serviced will not give records unless I am an owner. The carfax is clean and engine looks great. But don't want to take the leap without appropriate records. Can anyone help?
