I traded my M5 V10 when I was noticing the same expensive issues with other ppls cars. I traded it on a 2016 Alpina B7 and have had 0 issues except normal maintainence issues. Still use it as an everyday just as my wife uses her Golf R.

+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.

These have the rep of being the most unreliable beemer ever. In general, BMW's are fairly reliable. German cars being unreliable is a meme. Are they as reliable as a Toyota or Honda, no, but those cars are followers, they dont lead technology. They introduce tech 3-4 years after the fact.

This is why I like my Chevy SS with a manual because it has a 6.2 liter LS3 engine that is bulletproof! I don’t need 500+ hp in a car that is broken when I can get 415 hp in a car that works everyday!

Don't forget 1qt of oil every 1K miles, crappy 2nd gear synchro, "non replaceable" diff fluid, no traction control defeat without a visit to the doc and a dozen other little quirks. Hail got mine recently and a replacement mirror runs about $800. Oh yeah, and ask my neighbors about the cold start droning every morning. I bought my 07 6MT knowing it had issues, but it is my daily and I love every minute of driving it and to the redline quite frequently. It was literally the cutting edge of BMW's F1 trickle down at the time. If you have never driven one past 5K rpm you are missing out, and this is coming from someone who has had cars that made more torque from damn near idle than this car does at full tilt.

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.

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
