What to look for

Hello all

I have been driving a 97 528i for the last 4 years and have learned a lot about the e39. My dad is now looking at a 2000 M5 with 123,000 miles on it. It's Imola red with a caramel interior. I know the lower model e39s have always had cooling system problems and are notorious for certain things. When looking for an e39 M5 are there any specifics that should be looked at? Obviously a PPI is a no brainer but is there anything else that should be addressed?

Thanks, Vinnie
