+Kr_deem I still don't get why his comment was lame. You're just desperate to criticize someone for no reason. You don't know shit, anybody can read an online review to come up with info, everybody knows that they were money pits till 2009. Why tlll 2009,all those issues were addressed for 2009. Shut talking know it all's are fine a dozen. Like sheep, Baahhhh! Your all the same, pathetic lying, loses who live their whole lives online. It's all fake.

+Gandalf721 how do you know that it's still likely to cost alot after all the issues he mentioned are dealt with ug you don't own one? Cause you've seen one example of a knucklehead who was redlining it on the public street off every stoplight? Or just a guess? I'm interested to hear your bullshit reasoning? Cause you've worked on 10 examples like this? Or just cause you wanna appear smarter and harder than everybody else? Save it and go back to your PlayStation kid.

Be smart,get the E90/92 M3 instead. With the 6 speed manual ofcourse. The E60 M5 is,well i wouldn`t say overrated but the M3 is 90% of the M5 without any of the headaches

So lets do some simple statistics.:BMW made more +20.000 E60+E61 V10 M5 plus +10.000 E63 M6. Lets round down to 30.000 V10, 3% of that is 900 engines. You're stating that you easily found 900 complains of different engines on the internet??? Or you found less than 50 saying the same and made up your trash talk? Also how many people go to forums to say they dont have problems vs who goes and says they have problems. You just make thing up, but hey this the internet

Doug how do you feel about the E92 ///M3 ZCP as far as reliablity? The S65 V8 was derived from the S85 V10. I would assume the same problems. Throttle actuators, rod bearings, electronics, etc. This has always been my dream car but I've been scared off because of these problems.

Once those issues are fixed, will those issues be fixed for good? or after 50000 miles will those failure points be knocking at your car door again? Are these being replaced with superior parts or just with OEM replacements? I'd like to get one of these one day and I was just wondering.

had an 04 e60 545i for a little less than a year. paid 14k for it a few years ago. the car drove brilliantly, the steering feel especially was very precise and sharp. decided to dish it after i got a "Major engine malfunction" message on my infotainment system and the car spontaneously sounded like it had a massive cam installed at idle. lost my ass and sold it for 8k.. and it appeared to be a very well kept car with good service history and only around 75k miles. bmw remains one of my favorite car companies, but they can definitely be finnicky.

This M5 beauty has been a driveway ornament at my house for the last couple of years. Kinda feel bad for my brother, it was probably his worst car decision he EVER made. I think it has a very beautiful and subtle design (I love how it looks!).... but as it doesn't run, it's just a little nicer to own than a lawn gnome.

If you can’t provide your beauty beast, then dude buy a scooter. The cost of changing rod bearings is 1200€. If you cannot afford to do it every 50.000 km at a car revving 9.000 rpm,yes u are not supposed to buy the car. Also you don’t look like an M5 e60 man so leave it.....

I honestly think the main reason for such short failure aside from the rod bearings being too tight of tolerance. Is the break in period. I doubt anyone who bought these new followed driving it specifically to Break in period. It’s a f1 Engine that’s why warming up is so important

With all the pro's and con's of the E60 M5, it's a love thing. It's not the fastest car, certainly not the most reliable and expensive to run and maintain. But I still LOVE my E60 M5 because it puts the biggest smile on my face and it feels fantastic to drive. IMO this is what cars are all about for a true enthusiast.
