I have made up my mind. The next car I want to get myself into is the E60 M5. I am 26 and single and have no need for so much car. But, I simply cannot think of another ride that I would want to be in for $60. When buying something so expensive, what is it that I should look out for?
1. Production Date: General consensus says post 3/06 builds are relatively problem free. Given that my budget is $60k, I cannot touch the '07 / '08 models. Will it be safe to get the late '05 or early '06 builds?
2. Service Records: What do I look out for in this department? Basically to see where the car has been and what probs its had? Whats a red flag to look out for?
3. SMG Recall: If this has been done, great. If not should I call local dealer and give them VIN to see if they'll do it?
4. Extended Warranty: This comes into play after 4yr/50k warranty right? Is the dealer warranty best here?
