Good deal?

Looking for an older m5 v10. I know issues with the rods and this car looks like it had those replaced. Does anyone think this is a good deal??

Proven,proof that its been done. You've got Dinan exhaust on it but not sure if it takes in a tune also, you'll have to ask questions about that.
I have an F10 not E60, try the E60 thread they will be more knowledgable on there on tunes etc for the V10's.

If it earned a badge it probably has the tune. A car this old the $$ should be seen against the service history. You will need to familiarize yourself the issues of this series - rod bearings - seems to be done, the other being the SMG transmission.

You need to check it out, the service history and drive it to feel a 14 yr / 100K mile M car. Given it was last serviced in 2011 at a BMW dealer and had a proper break-in with the previous 3 owners - all of whom serviced it at BMW is good news.

GL!
