Hi folks, considering an '05 or '06 SE-R as my daily driver. I've been toying with the idea of an '01 M5 but I keep coming back to how much more sense the Nissan would make in terms of operating costs, repair/replacement parts, etc not to mention it's several years newer for less cash.

I've read over the posts looking for reports of common issues/problems, and so far it seems notchy shifts when cold and occasional starter issues are about all I can find.

Are there any common failures/weak areas to watch out for on these cars in particular? Any major servicing costs due to happen in the 30K-60K miles mark I should watch out for?

Also, I am trying to sort out what options would have been available...from what I can tell, the cars were mostly "loaded" with a few options like traction control, auto-stick tranny - any others?

Blunosr, I've been using my '06 as my daily driver since I bought it new, and love it. No problems outside of a blown window motor and a peeling wheel, but both were under warranty and I have a warranty to 100k, so I don't anticipate any either. Unfortunately, I need to sell it as I'm moving to Shanghai, so if you're anywhere near MI and still interested, let me know.
