I also considered a e55 before my 335i. Went and test drove a couple. They were definately fast on the highway where it can stretch it's legs. However the crappy steering feel just turned me off. I just didn't feel confident pushing the car because of the over assisted steering which gave no feedback of the road at all. Seats also did not have any lateral support when you pushed the car. I went to MBworld and read up on these cars and there are lot's of known issues with the e55. There is a good reason why they are so cheap for a car which had a MSRP of $85k. No one will touch them even with a 10 foot pole when they are out of warranty. Make sure you budget for repair cost.
