Replaced the E39 M5 with a 2010 E60 M5

Found a nice looking E60 M5, has the upgraded Navigation/interface which is great compared to the old one.
Picked it up 2 days ago from a Mercedes Benz dealership, has 54k original miles 1 owner.
Color is space grey metallic on black, looks brand sparkling new, very happy with it so far.
It does have SMG, I had an E46 M3 SMG before, somehow use to it already, bought an extended warranty as well in case the tranny starts giving me headaches

Nice, welcome to the family! Make sure it's up to date on maintenance. Even though it's low miles I'd consider swapping out fluids (trans, diff, etc) simply because of the age if it hasn't been done yet. Also when you change the oil be sure to spend $28 and get a Blackstone Oil analysis. Do it every oil change and you'll be able to track the health of your S85 (and the infamous rod bearings).

Thanks guys.
I'm from Orange County CA and the car is/was at Mercedes Benz Walnut Creak about 400 miles from home.
After taking to the sales guy for a couple of days I asked them to hold it for me, flew Monday with the family and after a test drive and careful review bought it.
We have been enjoying the car since here in San Francisco, driving back home tomorrow Friday... will see how she treats us on our way back.
So far driving around has been great, other than filling up every other day no surprises

i ended up paying quite a bit to but had been looking for a 2010 with less then 25k miles and it wasnt an easy find...dealer also threw in a 4 year/40,000 warranty so i justified the premium for the peace of mind...purchased from bmw dealership and paid 38k, dealer had it listed for 42. Could not be happier as it was about as mint as you can find and also had all maintenance records.....enjoy!! mines not a daily driver but the gas station will definitely be a frequent stop...i get better gas milage on my crew cab f150 ecoboost

LOL at the 'wasn't cheap' comment. That's dirt cheap....

My guess is the guy bought the 2010 21k mile car for around 40k..
