    Looking around and the F10 M5 seems like the performance bargain of the century .Why so ?

    Are they so problematic that people are scared to death of them as the prices have plummeted.

    Or is the market "just not there" for 500 bhp+ saloon cars at the moment or in the future?

    16 plate Singapore grey/Extended Silverstone leather... 20" alloys,HK and 360 cams... 56k miles. £25995 at a dealer...

    That must be a third of its new price in 3 years???

    Seems like a huge saving if they arent an unreliable mare.

    Compared to an RS6 of the same year they’re an absolute bargain

    I ran mine for 2.5 years from 18mths old , no issues at all. M5s just depreciate at an alarming rate , always have. The current model will be mid 40s next year and mid 30s the following. F10s are a great buy at the money.

    M5 F10 is a great car

    Its defo a good buy but I would only run one with warranty to save any big bills.

    A lot of car for the money

    What would the warranty costs be for a 3 yr , 50k miles car?

    As said, the RS6 and E63 seem to hold up better than the M5,

    Had mine for just under a year. It’s been bombproof. I have warranty on mine but haven’t needed. Epic epic cars and properly fast, in fact I think power is under quoted. Looking to get out of mine soon, huge spec and better value than the car posted by OP.

    The gfv on my car is 35.5k at 4 years / 32k miles, which would equate to dealer forecourt at £40k at that age and mileage. A great buy at that if you get a good one that has been looked after...

    I would trawl AUC and low ball dealers and push for 2 year warranty, dealers at this time of year will always look to do a deal esp with M5s. Buying from non franchise warranty’s won’t be as comprehensive .

    Way too expensive. The M5 needs the M Multifunction seats & Harman Kardon as a minimum in my opinion. Add in nice bits like remote boot closure, rear view camera, heated rear seats, heated steering wheel..........then that car doesn't have a good enough spec and also has the smaller not so nice 19in wheels.

    I remember Chris Harris tweeting something along the lines of the engine being a time bomb.

    Try for as low miles as you can.
    When you go over 60k warranty hours sky high.

    It’s a buyers market. If you can purchase one AUC then the warranty in year two is only circa 700/800 which yes is slot of money but piece of mind is the key.

    I’ve started looking at other options. I was going to buy something special that would hold its money, but at the rate ev’s are being launched, I fear what the taxman has in store for petrol cars and how that may effect values.

    If I was buying a f10 I’d def want a bmw warranty. Rs6 are good value too when you consider what they cost new. Now the new model is out, they should fall a bit more.

    That are a lot of car for £40k. I’m getting old too.

    Biggest issues seem to be buckling 21” alloys and squeaky brakes like all rs cars.

    They must be old then, Rs6's seem to be holding their money better than any BMW.

    Yes they’re great value at the moment. Had my f10 for less than a month and for me it’s perfect, supercar performance with saloon practicality :)

    It’s a big car though and not as agile or easy to park as my previous M3s

    The AUC referenced is too expensive for its spec as others have mentioned. Had mine since June and think its a blast but it is a lump. Get the AUC warranty and enjoy it.

    Personal preference but i actually sought out the 19' alloys. They look really good in the flesh, especially in a darker shade than the standard. They remind me of the E39.
