I'd hate to say yes and something goes wrong, these cars are very temperamental. Maybe wait until another member has a listen...

I know I understand, I am not putting a pressure on you, I won't hold anyone responsible... I was just looking at someone to say if he would go or not go for it , if one was in my shoes

Thanks for your responses, I decided to go ahead and buy it... If I need to bleed the vanos, I am pretty sure I can find DIS online, I mean buy it of course legally I have INPA and Ediabas which I used for my ex 335i to code injectors, so it's just a matter of finding it. I already have the cable which I used in the 335i, that should work on this M5, right ? They are both 2008 cars, so I suppose can interface (obd2)?

Can't wait for the long trip home, 1200 miles on summer tires

Cheers all

DAMN $22k for an LCI with only 69,000 miles?

clean title? seemingly that car should still be mid-20s maybe high 20s....

So that means that a car which has over a 100k miles is worth 18k

I called them on it day before yesterday and they said it was just sold...i cannot fathom an LCI M5 with that mileage at that price. Honestly it can be wholesaled for more than that. Not saying there is anything wrong, but that's 8 grand below where the car should be priced. If I were you I'd consider flipping it, you could easily make 4-5k on it.

FWIW, I asked them to meter the paint and if I could get it PPI'd and the used car manager said no, at that price they just want to sell it...I didn't like that.
