Amazing engine and I'm a big fan of the E60. Some of the V10's in '06 had issues with the high pressure oil pump failing and you will probably have to deal with the SMG pump eventually. If you have...

Rhipsher, did you just buy the 530 or M5 ? Current market value on that E60 is $10-12K.

Lease residuals on the F10 are 60-62% after 3 years so $74K for a '13 sounds about right considering...

I'm unclear. Is the car at the VPC in Port Hueneme or is it still in Germany?

I have driven every model of the 5 (E24/E28/E34/E39/E60/F10). Loved the E28 but BMW ruined the E34 with a poor chassis, engine and weight. The E39 was amazing but that's when they hit the law of...

If you are even considering an E36 M3 the E60 will feel isolated and soft. I do enjoy my 5 but in no way is it more satisying to drive from a visceral, engaged perspective than the 3 series.
