Always wanted to get an m5 but don't really want to spend 90 grand on a car, i am wondering if it's worth getting a 2006-2007 m5 since they aren't certified preowned. Any advice would be appreciated thank you.

Amazing how the prices dropped for the 2006 model year. It's very tempting to pick one up, maybe from someone on M5board.
Although some good lease deals can be had on new ones as well.

If I was to buy a used M5, I would look on the M5board.com. Check out the member, look over his history of posts and see what has been done to and with the car.

No where else and no other time in history could information like this be had.

The M5 is worth your money!

Just make sure you have it inspected.

so are you saying that BMW simply won't CPO any M5s? Is that true? I have never heard that before.

Why won't they? (is it because they suck and BMW knows they will lose money by CPOing the cars, or is there some other reason?) :dunno:

Correct, they will not CPO or extend warranty/maintenance on any 2006 and up M5. I am not sure if the reason has been brought up here before.

How has the supercharger been on the car? High-maintenance? It's such a nice car. I'm getting sick of finding parking with my 7 series. I guess it serves me right for being a 'real' new yorker and driving a 7. I just love the drive out to long island during the summer ;-)

Tribeca, E60 M5 has naturally aspirated V-10, no supercharger.... not yet.

5.0-liter, V-10 engine, 500 hp
High performance from high-speed engines: that's the philosophy of BMW M. This compact, high-revving, V-10 power unit develops enormous thrust and muscle that's always on tap. At 5.0 liters of displacement and 500 horsepower, the V-10 produces 100 horsepower per liter - a remarkable feat for a naturally aspirated production engine. And its power-to-weight ratio of one horsepower per each eight pounds is a figure more representative of a racecar than one you'd have in your driveway.

There are some awesome used M5 deals out there. I just bought one.

If you don't want to take the M5 plunge and want a fast M3. I'm selling my Supercharged E46 / M3:

There is a thread over on M5Board about BMW now offering CPOs for the M5. I dont have the link, but its there....
