Just when I as was out...

I thought my E60 days were behind me (a 530i and 535i), but I keep going back to those days

I am thinking about a 550i this time around.

What are some things I have to keep in mind when dealing with a higher mileage V8?

Coolant pipes were more prone to leak in the 545 than the 550, but it does happen. My high mileage 550 is on borrowed time. Good luck on your find and serviced records is must on these cars.
