Interesting rant.

Anyone that has done proper research on the early E60 M5 would surely know that the SMG is a total disaster and costs stupid money out of warranty.. In fact, did you not wonder why your new used car was so cheap!?!?!? Because they are a nightmare to maintain.

Your fault

And now that the car is broken, you want to buy a warranty to 'protect' yourself? That's fraud.

If you do not understand the need to open mechanical assemblies to diagnose issues, you ought to be driving a 4 cyl 1980s Toyota

Go to m5board for tons of info on this PRECISE issue
Keep it as simple as possible...but no simpler.
