Looking to buy 06 M5, issues?

Hello forum,

Looking to buy a 2006 E60 M5, are there any major issues I should be on the look out for?

The big three:

SMG-pump

Vanos High pressure line

SZL sensor.

The latter two would have been addressed by now. The SMG pump was the subject of a recall for early MY 2006 builds, otherwise it can happen but the repair is well known by now. Some report air in the Vanos lines which needs to be bled.

If you can get the service history of the car that would show you what has been done.

Dealers can CPO M5s now, you may want to focus on one that is certified.

Good luck in your search.
