So as promised, here are mine.

Changed at 126k. Owned the car since 123k (kms).

Last OA - Lead at 19ppm. Weekend Drive only. No track. Changed to 702/703 bearings

Wear is not too bad but probably will not last another 100k kms so glad I changed them. I will probably wait another 120k kms before worrying about them again given the current condition?

Enjoy. Now I need to change serpentine drive belts as my car was squeaking like mad when I first start then goes away after warm up. Dealer noted this prior to disassembly. Dealer says the cost of this job is $72 + 1h labour. SOunds about right???

I just bought the car about a month ago and love it. I bought it with the intentions of doing the bearings because I planned on keeping this one for a while as it's the last of the great NA M5s. I got the car under book so bearings were not an issue. I went ahead and shipped the car to Markert Motor Works to do a custom dyno tune, SMG tune, LCAs, coil packs & plugs, and the rod bearings. I went with the BE bearings and ARP 2000 rod bolts. While the front subframe was out we did the motor mounts and did a front to rear inspection and it already had the updated vanos lines, new power steering pump & lines and an Evolve power pulley in it which was a score.

Rod info:

- mileage
79650

- owner history
I'm the 3rd Owner

- average oil change interval
Based on dealer info from 1st owner and service receipts on the 2nd owner, every 5K with either Castrol or LM 10-60

- oil analysis reports if available
None

- reason you decided to change (fear, suspect noise, suspect oil analysis, hard usage, etc)
Known issue and figured that since I plan to keep it, just do the BE/ARP and be done with it.

- DIY or shop changed
Shop. Markert Motor Works in Lawrencevile, GA

- link to your change thread I you have one
Dont have one.

Bearing pics. 8 of the 10 look good and then #3 was just starting to see a little copper and #8 was copper. Not the best pics but you get the jist of things. Crank looked perfect.

Markert Motor Works are good people, surprised how well they know the s85, helped me out at NCM when I had a small coolant hose pop off that I was unable to access with tools i had. No charge repair by Markert Motor Works!
I owe them one.

They really are great! We had a coil pack take a crap at Road Atlanta and didn't have a spare. They came over, ran the computer on it and found #6 was the problem and had a bag of coil packs and put one in for us. Zero charge.

That is what I use them now for all the serious work. They did the chassis work on the race car and they have it now putting in a new clutch for the SMG.

Really dumb question guys, but how do you remove and then fit a replacement internal HP vanos oil line? Can't for the life of me work it out.

Cheers,
Matt

Did you remove the pump? I think it needs to be removed to get the line out. I didn't have too much trouble removing mine. Do you have it disconnected and just can't get it unseated or what is the issue?

Bizarrely I thought it was connected at both ends internally. Worked it out. Thanks Jim Colley for the advice.

Cheers,
Matt
