Highest Milage on Original Rod Bearings??
I know, I know, another rod bearing thread... Relax. Im sure I'll get a reaming, but whatever. I came upon this same titled thread, but in the E39 section. I did some searching and didn't find anything for the E60 M5's, but thought it might be interesting. Now my intention is not to convince or prove to anyone to replace or not to replace their bearings, just for entertainment and maybe some helpful information. Like when your a kid, it was always nice to finish the night of with a funny movie after a horror movie marathon. Now "Rod Bearings" is in the title, so if your that sick of reading about them, you shouldn't have clicked on it.
That being said, My 06 has a bit over 79,000 miles, and is bone stock (for the time being.), and is just my weekend car. I had an oil analysis on the first oil change when I first made the purchase, came back spic and span. I am anxious to do another one, which will be testing the oil that I have driven as opposed to the previous owners. I never exceed 3,000 rpm before reaching proper temp. But once that temp is met, I driver her hard, but never to a point where she seems uncomfortable. Are these not the funnest f*cking cars ever..? Hmm, maybe that should have been the tittle...
Anywho, see what happens
