Mileage Vs. Maintenance

So I was looking at e39s for sale and was wondering which would you prefer?

02 540i 6 speed with 120k miles decent shape needs cooling system and a clutch pretty soon. Current owner likes the car but not really an enthusiast.

With the 540i I wouldn't have more than $1k for maintenance after purchase price

or

02 m5 with 300k miles currently located in florida 2 owners the current owner has owned it since 67k miles. Great shape alot of preventative maintenance. The owner loves Bmws and is a enthusiast like myself.

I would have about $3k for maintenance. I do labor myself.
