... then from what I'v heard the the newer "N" engines in the newer 5 series cars should send you running for the hills. At least the coolant pipe in the e39 540 is easily and cheaply replaceble... in the new cars it is really expensive to do at the dealer and after market solution is cheaper but is still north of $500 for the part alone.
