Would you, or Would you not on this M5?

Need you guy's advice... currently there's a 2000 e39 m5 on a local lot for $13k. Odometer reads 139k, sales also mentioned that the NEW MOTOR only has 80k miles on it.

Apparently the dealer swapped the original motor with a 2003 e39 M5 because the original motor was "no good".

I'm on the market for a e39 M5, 2000 isn't the year of choice but can't beat the $13k.

What do you guys think?

The M5 is a 70K car that comes with a 70K car maintenance cost.

If you are so focused on the price of the car, you'll end up hating the car because of how much everything costs.

Like about 200 bucks for an oil change.

Or over 500 bucks for two tires.

And lastly, at this point in time, when a great 03's with less than 50K miles are only trading at high 20's, why look at anything else?
