Yes, the E65 has a ton of electrical issues.

An E38 would be a great buy, only if it is one that has been maintained. Lower mileage isn't always better with these cars, since most of the maintenance stuff comes up at around 100K.

If you have any questions regarding the E38, I would be more than happy to help. You can pm me here or find me on twitter @SEVEN40iL and same username on bimmerforums.com

2001 is the latest, but anything 99+ is good

E38 99+, this is the post facelift year. I had a 98 which was nice, however maintenance hstory is key here, make sure it had regular service with history from a BMW dealer, pay 2-3k more for it to find one.
