    Rare Car! Actually driven one: it was owned by the then-CEO of SolidWorks.

    OHC V8’s sound cool.

    Boss's son has an S7. Great car, he treats it like dung though.

    It's not as bad as a Land Rover, but it's no Japanese SUV. Electrics are as bad as Audi.

    Not for that money. I understand it has insanely low mileage but that's a absurd price for that car. You can get into a B8 for close to that money. As Bergs mentioned, the chain guides are the downfall of that motor and in 50k miles you'll be regretting the purchase.

    Between myself and a friend we've purchased 10+ B6 S4's all with around 100k miles on them and have never paid more than $2k. Once those chains get a lil' rattle in them their value goes into the toilet

    Re: BMW cars

    Thats a classic, and I like the modifications. At the same time a stock m5 would probably be a better choice.

    Spent a lot of time behind the wheel of a RS7. Crazy how far the full size RS cars have come since the RS6.

    I would want to make sure it had proper service history. Is it still under original 4/50k warranty? BMW's are great cars but can be expensive to repair. I bought a used 2009 BMW in 2012, beautiful montego blue 335xi with manual. Couldn't find what I wanted at the dealership but got it at Automax. People don't realize that extended warranty is like an accessory. I bought an extended warrant from BMW USA online from a dealer in SC for 2/3 the cost Herb Chambers wanted. It paid off when I needed to replace the injectors earlier. I still have the car 7 years later and it has been truly the ultimate driving machine. The 5 series less so, but still decent. That model was considered to be slightly inferior to the A6 of the same year.

    I do not have first hand knowledge on the quality of the 2016 5 series but I did have a 2011 550i and it was rock solid for a V8 Twin Turbo. You have a 4 cylinder so not sure if it is worse or better.

    Either way, I hope you are getting a good deal on it. The 5 series depreciate greatly so you should make sure you are getting a great deal. If I had to do it again, I would wait 4 years before buying one because you would be able to get one for really cheap.
