It all depends on the manner the car is driven and how the car is maintained.

I hope you dont talk the way you type.

yea if you drive it slow and never break the 5k RPM mark, then the car will most likely incur some accelerated wear and tear. Dog and thrash it, and you'll enjoy a long lasting durable vehicle.

I have to say, a high mileage s54 would concern me. That is such a high strung engine, I just don't believe its going to last like prior M engines. Its hard to say, but for one thing the s54 definately hasn't been proven as a trooper. I would also, if you are looking at used cars, stay away from the 01 model year.
