Hello, I am about to purchase a 06 M5 and I been browsing around this wonderful forum for about a month now. And I was wondering if the 2008 models suffered from premature bearing failure as well. I attempted to find a poll, but was not able to. I dont know if bmw changed anything that could have fixed this within the years or if I'm just shooting at the air. And if you never had bearing issues, would you be so kind as to post the year and mileage of your vehicle.
