I don't think this thread is contributing at all to the forum we should just close it.

Why do you feel that way? I find it very interesting. It's also motivating me to replace my bearings before I get effed by a blown motor.

I wanted to write to ask permission to cross post the bearing photos from this thread, over to the m3post thread on bearing discussions.
Official S65 Bearing Specification/Clearance Wiki

I would host the photos on my own server, and make sure they never disappear (links never get broken).

Since I'm not sure how often I will check back on this thread, if anybody has objections to cross posting their photos, then please send me a PM for me to refrain from putting them in my database.

Thanks,

/PG

If anyone has objections to their pics being used, let me know and I'll forward their concern. This is a great way to help the combined S65/S85 community and raise awareness.

I am close to pulling the trigger on a 2010 M5 with 30k miles. I am a bit afraid after reading up on the bearing failures. I am hoping that by the time it is an issue for me, a definitive solution will have been found. I plan on running M1 0w-40 as soon as I get it, and having the oil tested every change thereafter.

Is there any reason that a late built vehicle such as this might be less prone to failure? I read somewhere that the new bearings that people are getting are harder and not lead coated.

Most of the pics have been for 05-07 builds (which is understandable given that they are higher mileage and more likely to have been opened up).
