SEAN MUR­PHY, IRID­IUM

“I owned an E60 M5 and had a very bad ex­pe­ri­ence with it. It had done 130,000 miles with­out prob­lems and then all hell broke out. Granted, some was ac­ci­den­tal stuff like a wing mir­ror be­ing knocked off (£1000), but it went through three idrive con­trollers and two throt­tle ac­tu­a­tors (there are two at £600 each). It also needed a new clutch. Parts aren’t cheap. I was un­lucky with mine, though, be­cause gen­er­ally the E60 is re­li­able and will do high mileages with ease — and it has the best-sound­ing BMW en­gine ever.”
