Hired a PPI before purchase!

Try to get a Cert M5 if you can, I have had my beast for almost 12 years, never a problem, other than trival sensors, lights, fuses but nothing alarming. These are very rare cars, trying to find a shop to repair other than the dealership is the hardest part in my book. Best of luck, don't forgot to let us know how you made out! :-)

Start here to compare whats on the market. I built a spreadsheet that has every E39 M5 for sale across the country under $20k. It includes prices, miles, ownership records and more. Definitely join up at M5 Board too. Tons of information.
