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).
Personally, I think you got a bad apple. I purchased my 2006 M5 in 2007 used. I've had issues but they are all minor. I still own the car today. I have 22,000 miles on it. The only I have to pay for is tires. I replace them every 10,000 miles, not by choice. They wear out fast.
I purchased a FULLY loaded, every option you could possible get, M5. I love the car. But I must say, I also own a 2005 M3 Convertible that I have NEVER had a problem. Both cars have SMG.
