Help w/E64 M6 Purchase

Howdy, folks.

I have a friend who's possibly interested in buying a 2010 M6, but concerns over the V10 have him spooked a bit, and understandably so. I know that the issues of the motor 'grenading' have been solved by a rod bearing replacement, and that the other problems (Vanos, SMG pump motor) are not hugely expensive. Can you link to some videos or articles that point to what's involved, the cost, and time involved, so he can put his mind at ease?

The alternative is to look at a '13 F12, which might be out of his budget right now, but I'm trying to build a case to explain that spending low- to mid-20K on a V10 +$3K for the required preventative maintenance might not serve him as well as stretching his budget and just getting into an S63Tu, more amenities, better performance and newer tech.

Any guidance or wisdom you can share would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
