Seeking experienced e39 M5 help for buying in Virginia (Reston/Fairfax/Dulles area)

Im looking at an M5 in that area. I have e39 528i experience, i am a wrencher with 2 e30s. This is a different animal, and would appreciate someone familiar. I have only been a passenger in the m5 in the past.

I was wondering if anyone was willing to help me benchmark the car. I can pay and feed you.

I am getting a PPI done, but I want someone with specific knowledge to help me out if possible.

I am new so no PMs yet. Reply here if you can help me out. A weekend in Feb would be ideal.

Pro Tip, if you use Tapatalk on your phone you can circumvent the minimum post requirement for PMs
