Buliding up to M

Maybe you should try a 3 first a 330i w/ZHP is a nice choice and shouldn't kill you on maintenance or insurance even at 19.Even an e36 M3 would be easier on your wallet,unless your a professional BMW tech the maintenance on an M5 is not cheap, and being 47 with a clean driving record makes the insurance reasonable ,but I can tell you Progressive was charging us $1200.00 every six months for my daughter's Mustang because it's a "sports car" V6 and all, she's 22 now hence the" was charging us" since she's now off our policy .Which is one of the reasons I started to look for a E39 M5 the other is I am a Master BMW tech so nobody works on my BMW's but me.I don't charge myself my normal $80 per hour.Don't think you can't get into BMW's just make sure you don't make your first experience a horror story .
