etc.. i could go on and on

stay away from E39 if you want my advice. Cars are too old and are prone for failures
you will dump alot of money into it and resale value is garbage.
I don't think so about the 500K part, i know at least 4 540's that are owned by friends or relatives at over 350K and they burn oil like no tomorrow already. But YES it will drive to 500 LOL.
