thank you guys for your help. it is making me feel a lot better about SMG. A little history about this M5. maintenance records show no transmission problems however the reason the previous owner got rid of it is because he was having trouble with the I drive software according to the sales person. according to him he told me that after having the same problem with the software twice the original owner used lemon law and BMW north america agreed to buy the car back from him and helped him with a new M5. They also assured me that the software was upgraded on the car and it is functioning very well now. also they assured me that the software malfunctions had nothing to do with the transmission. Tomorrow i will look at the full maintenance records for the car and hopefuly if all look good i will complete the deal.
One more thing, I tried so hard to get on the M5 forum/board but it will not allow me to post threads. but you guys have been very helpful
