    As far as I've ever heard, they're about the most reliable series of BMW evar. I don't really care for european cars, but I would take one of them shits in a second.

    Only buy a BMW if you can afford the repair costs. None the less I'd whip an M5 in a second.

    Yeah, I think they are very classy but I don't want E500/55 fuckstory repair problems...

    My parents bought an E500 with 13,000 miles (grandfathers rarely driven car) and the air suspension and batteries were fucked (2500 bux)

    I am ok with semi-high maintanence ( had an evo...) but not for endless repair bills

    weak clutch, 4 fuel pumps. check the service history carefully, pay for a ppi you'll be fine.
