M5 Video Guide Customer Interviews

Simon wasn't sure if he should buy an E39 M5 and if he did, he was concerned about what to expect for maintenance and operating costs. What happened after Simon purchased the M5 Video Guide?


Glen's M5 had a major item in the drivetrain that needed immediate attention. Even though he'd owned BMW's before, he sought money saving maintenance and detailing tips. How did it work out for Glen?


Too bad the M5 Video Guide didn't exist two years ago!

It surely would have saved myself and others a lot of cash buying the wrong car...Do you know enough to buy one intelligently? Maintain it inexpensively? 

Sadly, too many people don't... So if you just purchased one of these incredible cars, if you've found an E39 M5 for sale, or if you're thinking about buying one, this video guide can save you time learning about this awesome car. If that sounds like something you're interested in, then keep reading...because you're about to take advantage of my video guide... it doesn't exist anywhere else! 

But first, you may be interested in my personal story that all started a few years ago with my first E39 M5...

When I first heard about the E39 M5 from my neighbour, I wasn’t sure about this car. To me it sounded at first like a regular 5 series BMW jacked up on steroids. What I didn’t know was how the BMW M Power division is really like a brand within a brand at BMW and makes some of the finest cars in the world. After reading about the car online, I thought:

”Those crazy engineers at BMW must be INSANE!”

I considered the performance specs on the car and read a few reviews. It was becoming clear to me that this car was a well guarded secret in performance car circles even though I’d heard about the M5 before.​

So I found one on eBay, had it “inspected” and other than seeing some pictures, considered a 2003 E39 m5, then bought a 2001 E39 M5 ‘sight unseen’.

Over the years, I've driven and owned some incredible cars - some of them cost 'no object' - from Porsche, to Ferrari, to Audi. And today, I can say that: 

”The BMW M5 is one of my all time favourites…but she’s not perfect."

But not long after buying the 2001 M5, I found myself visiting the dealership more than I would like…and paying for more repairs than I have experienced with other high performance cars I’ve owned.

I asked the head service tech why my car was costing so much, and he told me that it wasn’t necessarily the E39 M5 that was the problem, but instead it was possible that I bought a car which had nearly all the maintenance deferred… even though I had the car inspected and it showed “No Major Problems”…yeah right! The problem was that...

”I had not purchased the M5 intelligently”

But it didn’t have to be that way. Had I known what to look for, now that I’ve owned the M5 for a few years, I could easily have avoided buying the wrong car and paid A LITTLE BIT more for the RIGHT car, which would have saved me THOUSANDS of dollars in the long run! Since then I’ve made it my business to immerse myself in the car, its systems and requirements.

You can learn from my mistakes and find out how to locate the perfect E39 M5 for sale and buy a fantastic E39 M5 in any model year (2000 m5, 2001 m5, 2002 m5 or 2003 m5) that will almost be guaranteed to be problem free – if you know what to look for…

”The E39 M5 may be the best car BMW ever built!”

Now the kinks are worked out of my car, it’s up to spec and I can say that I am totally in love with it. There’s nothing out there today for the money that will provide you with the same level of driving satisfaction, practicality, style and performance. In fact this car is VERY reliable.

”And for the money…NOTHING even comes close.”

Trust me, I know. Maybe today the RS6 Audi or the Caddy CTS-V might be close contenders. And back in the day the Mercedes E55 AMG or Jaguar XKR for 4 doors – but they both cost wayyy more to buy and maintain…plus they have their own issues that you wouldn’t want. Recently I had the privilege of driving (very hard) for the weekend a 2007 E60 M5 and after a thorough comparison of both cars, I concluded that it’s a totally different car than the E39…And once you take the comparably HIGH COST out of the equation, the BMW E60 M5 is probably the next most comparable car out there…However, FOR THE MONEY you’ll learn why...

”...the E39 M5 is better than ANY other performance sedan”

Today, you can benefit from my knowledge. Learn what to expect in terms of maintenance costs, when to take it to the dealer and when to take it to a private shop (for WAYYY less money).

Find out what kind of driving style will cost you how much and why. Learn which modifications are easy and cheap. Learn which service items can be deferred and which ones require immediate attention if you don’t want to blow up your credit card in the future.

”Take advantage of my knowledge…save your cash and enjoy your car more”
