Lightbulb 2002 BMW M5 -- Welcome all advices

Hello, hope everyone is doing great

Plan to buy 02 M5 with 103185, one owner trade in, body looks great. Of course I will ask for all the records. Is it a great DD? What are the common problems with this year model? Any advice please

Thanks to all inputs!
