Default Looking to buy 2013 M5

Hello everyone,

I am trying to buy a M5 it seems. I currently drive a CLS550 and I wanted to upgrade. the CLS63 AMG was on my list, but the M5 is pulling me in.

With that being said, I have an appointment to go test drive one tomorrow.

I am hoping to get some info, some advice, etc on what things, if any, to look for while checking this car out. What are some known issues that I should try to verify are not failing, etc.

The car has 45000 miles on it. I do plan on getting the extended warranty.

Also, if there are any other general things I should know. I'm an avid car enthusiast, and I have done my research. It seems pretty solid from what I can tell.

Thanks in advance for the help!

I test drove one today. It was a smokers car. Terrible, so I was not going to buy that exact one, but still wanted to drive it.

This car was a 2013 with 45000 miles on it. When I checked the rotors, they were badly lipped in the front, and not as bad in the back, but still worse than I would have liked.

I get in the car and right off the bat, the A/C is broken. It's 105 outside where I tested this car. That sucked.

Next, the car said that a tire was low and to "drive at own risk" - But the tire seemed fine. Maybe it was a bad sensor?

Anyways, I get on the road and my first impressions are not good. I think this car was a busted broke ass piece of shit. This was not a nice M5 at all.

I tried to punch it a few times at a 20 mph roll in first, and the lag was very noticeable, and the car did not feel as fast as I thought it would. I never even heard the tires chirp. I did have traction control on, but everything else was sport. Not even a little baby chirp from the tires. I really wonder if maybe because the tire sensor thought it was low, maybe the car was pulling power? Or maybe this car in general is just crap.

I'm searching for another M5 to go drive, as I am pretty sure the one I tested today was not how an M5 should be.
