I thought about an E39 M5, but the maintenance costs on the old 528i are fairly steep. It has to be worse on the M5. I hate putting this much money into an old car that isn't worth very much.
Let's see. Buy oil filters online for $8 US, 5w30 castrol Syntec from Walmart in US for $26 and other than that I bought a used pair of headlight ballasts including lights for $150, new Michelin Pilot Sports for rear. Besides that I removed the entire nav and stereo and replaced it with a car computer. That is it for 1 years ownership and pure joy to drive. You just have to look for a previously non-abused vehicle. They are out there.
