Try to get a Cert M5 if you can, I have had my beast for almost 12 years, never a problem, other than trival sensors, lights, fuses but nothing alarming. These are very rare cars, trying to find a shop to repair other than the dealership is the hardest part in my book. Best of luck, don't forgot to let us know how you made out! :-)
