Agreed.

Bear in mind, these forums attract the "lunatic fringe," so you will be exposed to many off-the-wall things that the average E39 owner never experiences, or doesn't bother to report.

The GOOD NEWS here is that this place is a catalog of the marque's foibles, and can be a great resource for your troubleshooting exercises.

THe E39 is definitely NOT a lemon, but it IS a German luxury/performance car, with a sophisticated chassis very much advanced from your '57 Ford Ranch Wagon. It is NOT a maintenance-free ride.
