Default M6/E63 - Common problems? Considering buying one, any help appreciated

Hi Everyone!

I've got the bug for a rip-roaring M6 with 10 screaming cylinders. I'm looking at buying one with higher milage and wondering if you guys have any words of wisdom when it comes to these machines. It appears the s85 has some problems with crankshaft bearings and leaking VANOS high pressure lines.

Are these reason enough to stay away from these beautiful machines? Are there other problems with these cars that you could share? Do you think parts are going to be an issue going down the road, apparently BMW quit making the s85, maybe for good reason.

Any help advice appreciated!
