Albert I didn't know you had a problem too! When did that happen?

Dan, do you have your car back yet?

Update

Hi Matt, got a call from my SA today. My SMG pump has arrived from Germany. It took a week : (

Hopefully I get my car back tomorrow.

But I also asked them to check my brakes. Brake pedals feels a little mushy. Last time this happened they just flushed the brake fluid and I am afraid it maybe a master cylinder replacement this time. Thanks again to CPO!

I am itching for a coffee and drive meet again soon! Those dang twice baked almond croissant that Albert introduced to us at West Seattle Nuveau is the best!

Dan -- great news that you'll have your beast back soon!

I will inquire about the brake issue too as the last time I took the beast out, I also noticed a mushy brake feel. I wonder if it's not just a bad bleed on the previous job but a flush never hurts.

Have a great weekend!

Thanks Bryan!

Brakes pedal feel being mushy must be another common issue with our M6 after 25K miles.

4 months ago when I brought her in for mushy brake pedal feel they said it is possible that air got trapped on the brake fluid so they did a complete brake fluid flush and that appeared to work as brake pedal feel became firm again. Issue is now back 4 months later.....

You have a great weekend too. Portland is not too far. Come join us for an early morning drive, coffee and excellent croissants!

Yes -- I was talking more about it in this thread with Mike...

Aside from seeing all your smiling faces and gaining some calories with delicious pastries, I have to visit the PNB Remittance Center there in Seattle or Tukwilla soon so I can't put it off too long..

Hopefully your shop can finish all of the things you need before end of day tomorrow.. Sunday is going to be a beautiful day (Monday too!)

Friends,

My poor M6 currently has 42.500 miles. I never changed the SMG pump, nor do I have any indication it might need changing.
As for the brakes, this feeling you have is not good. It is not a matter of flushing, but probably the master brake cylinder staring to go bad.
Also an unknown issue to my car.

Of course I am a cool driver, as you all know. I never exceed 5000 rpm and my top speed is 100 mph. LOL!

Hello George.

I agree about the brakes but my soft pedal is not severe and I have seen such things firm up after properly bleeding the brakes (in non-severe cases).

As George have indicated - no two SMG pumps are made the same. Some will last longer than others.

And as I mentioned on my post, the brakes issue is most likely master cylinder as they already flushed the brake fluid last time.
Again, some parts last longer than others.

And I will bet we all drive our beast as its designed to be driven and as its meant to be driven.

Enjoy your own beasts, get it fixed when it breaks, keep having fun.
