S38B36 E34 M5 engine - Age, oil leaks, gaskets around cylinder one, timing chain around 200,000 miles, valve train on these 10yr old plus cars, again, really just wear and tear as miles creep up to 200k. Clutches need replacing immediately upon first sign of slippage, immediately.

S38B38 E34 M5 engine - Misfires due to failing coil packs, not expensive, occasional MAF meter issues, clutch must be replaced on very first sign of slippage.
