very little known about E34 M5's, as far as I'm concerned I don't know of any major flaws cept for the similar parts on regular E34s.

well its not that i have alot of cash... my family needs cars so we do what we can... not yet have we spent more than $7000 on any one of our Bimmers. The M3 and the M5 are just something that i started to look into... Probally will not get one any time soon, but am really intrested in them...

Oh and i went to the dealer today... on his website open saturdays 10 - 6... im there about 11:15... doors are locked. So that sorta pissed me off. But its ok.

There's lots to check for on a used M5. Don't buy it without doing a leakdown test. Also, there's lots of good info here:

I am about to buy a 1993 M5 - in the next week or so I should have it. (Just waiting till the current owner gets his E39 M5). An M5 can cost a lot of money if any motor work is needed, a rebuild is around 10K - 15K. Don't buy one unless you are prepared for the expenses.

Here's a link which even mentions the chip I developed for the M5:

Look carefully at the service records and see if the indicated mileage makes sense. The odo's in these cars can be rolled back as they are electronic, and I think this is done to more cars than you would imagine. It's quite unlikely that a 1991 M5 would have 150K Km's. I've looked at many, and that seems to be the magic number you see them at. The 93 I am getting really has 152K km. The current owner has it since 36K.
