I wouldn't do it if I were you. Insurance for me at the age of 20 with a clean record and driving a 2011 Toyota Corolla costs me about $900 every six months. Especially with a BMW M, expect to see 3 to 5 figure repairs in the event that something should go wrong. S62B50 has been known for some issues like carbon build-up, but only the experts would really know. A good alternative for your budget would be considering a 3-series or an Infiniti G.
