The m62 will eventually need timing chain guides, cooling overhaul and gasket replacement (vc, valley pan, oil pan). Aside from that, they are pretty reliable. Cost for those three jobs is around $2500, $600 and $900 respectively including parts and labour. Even if you did those three jobs right away, you're still under budget if you buy the e39. Seems like a no-brainer to me! the window regulators and headlight adjusters will eventually break too, but that is no major headache.
