Lots of potential issues to deal with given the complexity, but a well sorted example shouldn't give you much grief. Keep in mind everything costs more. Definitely get a good PPI and stash some cash for rainy day. Don't service at the dealer.
+1. Happy research on! It's all about how the prior owners treated the car. The M5 is all about appropriate maintenance.
