well... the M5 is a cruel mistress ... i am the second owner, and the first owner did maintenance to the teeth (changed oil every 5k, every maint possible on time) and did $15000 worth of maint and repairs post warranty ... after i picked it up... i still had at least $5000 worth of preventative and non-preventative maintenance and repairs to go...
just tackled MAF sensor malfunctions, now i got front control arm bushings... the problems never end if you want to make it run perfectly
and i baby my m5 like never before... if i drove it like i drove my z4, man, amex will love me long time.
