Arrow bought 2010 maroon E60 M5

Hi everyone,,

This is Ali from Dubai and I'm new to the forum. I wanted to own an E60 M5 since I was 15 years old, but unfortunately I was 15 and I couldn't LOL. The E60 M5 was one of my dream cars and it comes in the 2nd place of my of my list. So, I wanted to own the one in the first place first then I move to the second one and I can proudly say I did it with tears in my eyes and a smile in my face. So, some of you will ask which car is in the 1st place, it's (FORD GT Supercar 2006). After buying that one I asked my self why not buying an M5, so I did, btw I was searching for a good one in my country for about 3 years. All what I found are 2005 to 2007, the 2008 ware rare and if you find one it will be in a really bad condition. I red about the car a lot and I know that the car needs a lot of attention, the running cost is very high and the maintenance is really dam expensive, but still I want it .
Recently, I found one and I bought it, it's 2010 E60 M5 a low milage one (26k miles or 42k km ) with a really good price (19k $) no accident and it's equipped with IPE F1 exhaust + x pipe. But, still the car needs some care, the body have some small dents which needs some pint touch up, it needs some bushing and it had a fuel pressure code ( the mechanic cleared it and didn't come back).

So I want tell you what I did
1- I changed all the fluid (engine+filter, transmission, differential, break and coolant)
2- ordered some polyurethane bush for the front end ( LCA, UCA, antiroll bar bush)
3- transmission mount
4- new spark plug
5-new spark plug coil number (5+6) they was broken

What do you think guys, Have I missed any thing?, any recommendations?, how was the deal?

BTW, I did't use the car yet but I hope I can enjoy the most out of it. I also hope to be a good member in the forum, learn from your experience and enjoy being with you.

Thanks a lot

Congrats I have a 2010 black on black, definitely makes me smile every time I drive it and you will love it. You might want to do the air filters and cabin filters as well.
