Hey everyone, I've been doing some thinking and planning lately and I'm almost sure of my decision to be. I live in Miami and I've been looking for an e39 M5 for a while now and I think I've found the one. I became quite skeptical when I started looking at it because it's a 12/1999 build date but the guy said he has had the Vanos serviced. The car currently has 115k miles on it but it looks like it's in beautiful condition and not to mention it has the facelift headlights and tail-lights. I'm going to check it out again this weekend and make my decision but I was hoping for some current owners opinions before I make my final decision. If the vanos is an issue how hard is it to tackle? I'm extremely techie and I love DIY threads here so just help me with your input. Thanks.
