I'm looking at a 2000 M5 and wanted some feedback from the gruppe. I have an E30 M3 and have owned an E34 M5, but am in need of a sedan. I've looked at the M5 board and have noticed a few things like Vanos that need to be looked at. I know that some people said that my E34 M5 was not a good daily driver, but even though the parts were a bit pricey, I had a really good experience with that car up to 225k miles when I sold it. Does anyone have a high mileage E39 M5 that can comment on how expensive it really is to run? I love the 6 cyl. engines, but am still a little bit nervous about the V8's. Thanks for all of you input/feedback.
