In the market for an F10 M5!

Hey guys, what's up

So I'm this close to import a used 2012 M5 with 15 000 kilometres on the odo from Germany to Sweden. Anyhow, the salesman told me the engine was changed at around 1200 km because of early model lemon problems. No information could be given about the details at that time. I sort of smell a rat and I was wondering if you guys knew what was faulty about the early S63TU engines? Was it central mechanical issues, injection, exhaust, electronics or what?

There is also a slight confusion about the stereo seeing as my German isn't all that great. What I'm looking for is the HiFi-System Professional and even though they claim this is what the car is equipped with, I want to be able to check it when I see the car. How can I determine whether it's got it or not? What do I look for, i.e. speaker appearance, looks, sound, settings etc?

Thank you beforehand /Christian

I'm curious
Why buy a car that's had issues already when if your patient u can get a flawless dream car
Just my opinion
These cars were lemons for a reason!
Don't buy a lemon when u can buy a peach
Good luck
It will all work out in the end....and if it hasn't worked out yet, its not the end!
