Tranmerica is an unknown quantity at this point
ghead

I'm considering purchasing a '91 or '92 E34 M5, however I don't have first hand experience with the type of car.

If anyone can provide any insight on chronic maintenance/problems, any indiosynchracies and any general commentary about the car, I'd greatly appreciate it.

My apologies if this information is listed elsewhere, but I was unable to search on +E34 +M5 and couldn't find anything in the FAQ.

Thanks in advance.

I don't know much about what goes wrong with them, but expect a few thousand a year in maintenance (this is what current owners are saying).

How many miles are on the beast?

Because of the high performance engine, expect to rebuild the engine at / every 100k unless it is driven very softly.

The car is really awesome, but maintenance is expensive and is on average 2800 and up for maintenance per year (assuming its a daily driver).

Expect all parts to be much more expensive than anything made for a standard bmw, even if the parts are close to the same.

good luck, post pics if you get it .
