Bought this from a member on here about a year ago

The cars story is a follows, it was originally a california car and then was sold and purchased in north carolina. i bought it off a member here whom owned it since 70k to 120k. he was a bmw salesman in north carolina and he found it through his bmw dealership connections in cali. I went to north carolina to pick it up.
It was a cpo car until 100k and thats how the story of the motor getting replaced and the trans. Almost every m5 that i have ever heard of has had the common problem of carbon build up which triggers the failure of the secondary air pump code which sets of a CEL. As you know there is almost no way to fix this unless you get a chip/tune to delete the code but since it was under cpo the original owner wanted it fixed right and bmw's idea was to take off the heads and clean it. This didnt work and actually ended up hurting the car so bmw bit the bullet and did a longblock in the car. So thats the story of how the car ended up with a new motor.
The second owner said he bought a extended warranty from bmw once he bought it. A year or two in he had an issue with hard shifting when it was cold out so he brought it in and they were able to duplicate the symptoms and couldnt figure out the problem so they ordered a new trans and while the trans was out he also had them do a clutch while they were doing it.
I have paper work from bmw for both big jobs and alot of other paper work from the previous owners for other services.
The motor that was put in was a new one from bmw installed by them and most importantly had the updated rings and vanos units from what I understand and it dosent use any oil unlike most 2000 models.
