Welcome to the Werkz.


Be really really cautious about the the first two years of the E65, it had a painful amount of electronics issues which many people just couldn't resolve. All cars need maintenance, but if you can do the basic stuff yourself, its not too bad.

The E38s were a really solid platform if you can stand going back to the previous model 7 series, otherwise you'll have to look at a 2005+ E65 model. I don't know that the 5 series had the same degree of electrical issues because they weren't as heavily loaded with electonics as the 7 series.
