That appears to be a generic interpretation of the BMW specified Inspection II for BMWs in general. Actually it sounds like a shop that has 'dressed it up' to make it sound more extensive and detailed- to support their prices or influence your decision to go there.

Near as I can tell it is NOT what BMW publishes for the M5.

While it may be useful or helpful, when someone asks for a FACT they should get that and not someones 'best guess internet search'.

The OP can easily find it himself. Posting misinformation actually does him a disservice!
