If you loved it that much and it was the saddest day of your car ownership experience to let it go, then you could have find ways to keep it. Buy an ext warranty and spend some time keeping the car pristine. Basically, I'm sure you had options if it meant that much to you.
I was crazy about the car. But I really like the more trouble free ownership experience of a brand new car and didn't have the time or interest in dealing with the increasing problems that come as a car ages.

If the E39 had still been around in 06, I would have gotten another one. But at that point, the E60 550 was too expensive for my budget. So I got an Infiniti M45 Sport back then. When that lease was up, the 550 was within my budget and it was a happy happy day to return to the magic of a BMW V8.
