This is a great idea. Can you clean up the thread though so it only contains actual DIY's or useful information and not "subscribed" threads?

Thanks for taking the time to put this together.

Let me ask a different way then:
Should any of the existing items in post #2 here be removed for any reason?

Thanks.

I would have thought the items in post #2 might be good for new owners to get an idea of timescales in the cars life for these jobs. I'm sure it's intended to be an approximation, and not a schedule as such.

Happy to be corrected though

2001 E39 M5 : Silverstone Blue, 19" Breyton Spirits (horribly rashed...Genuine BBS LM's to go on), Philips Silverline Indicator Bulbs, Intravee II and Alpine KCA-420i (in a box in the house) and 160GB iPod Classic , Evolve headers and race cats to go on, otherwise standard at the mo...

"I look at it like this. Owning an M5 is kind of like dating a slamming hot big-t...ed blonde, who is a pain in the *****, drains your cash, but screws like there's no tomorrow. Owning a Honda Civic or the like, is akin to dating a girl who is fat, ugly, smells a bit where she shouldn't, is a cheap date and doesn't screw at all (you don't mind). So yeah, I'll take the blonde." (Courtsey of Jetpilot718)

The thread of my car and it's progression to mechanical perfection... : http://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/e39...ry-thread.html if I ever get around to anything...

If anyone, who wrote a "subscribed" post here, would like me to delete their post, please drop a Thanks or Like to this post.

FYI, an alternative to posting simply to subscribe, is to use the "Thread Tools" link atop each page in the thread.

I never made one, it's basically the same as you would perform to get to the cam position sensors, all three are back there for each bank. Not a whole lot to write up, except that it's a pain in the ***. I think theres a thread about it.. lemme search and see.
