Now that the E39 M5 are becoming available in my price range, looking for
comments on what to look for when buying second hand etc.
Looked at a 1999 T reg locally to me - had the full BMW service history with
all receipts and was in very good condition (ex-solicitors compnay car
apparently judging by the name on the paperwork)
80K miles on the clock, all electrics worked as far as I could tell. On the
market for £12.5K
However, having been stung once before buying the first car I saw, I am
going to cast my net a bit wider.
Are there any major points I need to look for, any recall items that should
have been attended to etc etc.
Does this model suffer the cooling fan problem as with other E39's? What
about timing belt replacment etc etc.
