Whats with all the 2013 M5's
I was looking into buying an M5 and budget is around 30k. Would prefer lower miles and newer year, but after looking through multiple sites i.e. Autotrader, cars.com, I was seeing alot of 2013 M5's pop up on the radar. While the F10 was from 2011-2016, I was wondering if there was a facelift or update going on 2014+ model years? Were there common problems during the 2011-2013 M5 years that I should avoid? Were they lemons?
For example, the E60 M5 I was told had V10 Timing problems that I should completely avoid and the E39s were better, however, I was looking into something newer. Another example is the Mercedes Benz early V6 engines on the w211's had a balance shaft issue where the repair was thousands of dollars. Should I avoid 2011-2013+ M5's?
