I read it and I appreciate the author's outlook on it. I liked that he gave some reasons NOT to buy an M5, but I still don't think that would be enough education to the general car-buying public...

Yikes, that was gruesome.

Instead of trashing it, they could have easily made a quick $500- $1000 in parts (cats are likely $400 alone, plus tranny and engine), and that's not even taking into...

The grease where the steering wheel mates to the actual column dries up over time- best to dismantle the column, clean the surfaces and apply some white lithium grease.

I would honestly source a CCM. Super easy to swap out, and a usual "wear item" on these cars, so if it isn't the CCM and the same problem persists, you will have a spare for the future.
