A lot of car for the money! Always had a soft spot for them, although I'd be interested to know their reliability!!

Known to be pretty reliable. There are a few in the US that have plue 200K miles on them.

If only my home were finished, would have flown down and picked this up !!

It's just the V10 aspect that is the pro/con for this type of car and of course the service bills.

Andecorp, not interested in it as a run-a-bout??

I have 13 cars already  :doh: Besides, the Bentley is the run-a-bout.

I think the engine is the biggest pro of the car. The biggest con is the DSG - I personally can't stand flappy paddles.

I LOVE its active seats though. Those are cool as!:)

Yep, experience from past owners of them have said that the SMG gearbox was its only downfall. Very clunky around town, but the engine was pure F1.

I think the active seats are a bit creepy, I kept looking around to see who was fondling me

Yes. Each individual seat can be switched off or it has 3 different grades of how much you want it to be active.

The issues with the E60 M5 is that they are very hard on clutches, and start shuddering.  This is largely due to there being no lubrication on the release bearing.  Secondly there is a rubber hose that goes inside the motor that feeds the vanos, these are now getting to the age where they are breaking causing the vanos to loose pressure and stop operating properly.  The fix is a bit expensive I am led to believe.

All that has been done on this car less than 100km ago.
