I highly suggest the 08s+ due to the LCI update. It makes the car look a bit more modern. Overall, by 2008, they pretty much fixed all the little nagging issues. Plus you have plenty of warranty remaining. Gas I admit does cost a pretty penny b/c it chugs it so fast. But then again, the M5 isn't for everyone. If you can't afford to pay to play, then I suggest you get something more mundane. I see a lot of ppl trying to get into the M5 market by picking up the cheaper 06-7s. Those cars have lower resale b/c they are buggy (some, not all) and little or no warranty left. What you save on purchase price will cost you more in the long run in repairs outside of warranty. The real gems are the 09-10s b/c they have the newer HD based Navi and iDrive. The older iDrives are sluggish.
