M5 2006: When new I got bad computer bus cable. 4 weeks to get it replaced. Oil leakage from factory almost lost engine...! Bad Windshield Glass seals. Bad steering wheel leather quality and materials. i-Drive Vehicle Service menu disappeared. Bad Alternator at 26k miles. Puerto Rico Dealer replaced battery under warranty, but reported bad alternator after warr expired! Giving up lease after 4 yrs. Got new 550i M Sport with M5 driver side exhaust, spoiler, etc. DON'T get this car without CPO and extended warranty and service option (100k/6yrs).
