Although a somewhat old thread I hear the advice I am looking for. I agree 'famous' it is scary.

I was looking at this:

Input? I don't like the fact that a Ford dealership is selling it thus I feel they don't really know what they have. It's on me to know everything about this car.

I went back and forth between the C55, E55 and M5. Settling on the M5.

The potential mechanic ghosts of this M5 (E60) worry me from the standpoint of one fix after another. I don't fear working on a car. I have done head gasket jobs, clutch replacement, rear end replacement and so on on the vehicles I've owned. I just don't want my first BMW to be a regret. Don't want a problem child.

My alternative is a 550i.

Helpful feedback desired.
