what a chilling story indeed... !!
thanks for sharing it with us. i do feel for you and i agree with some of the responses, especially about seriously considering to get rid of this continium of problems.

i now strongly believe that the M5 is a completely balanced masterpiece that should not be tampered with even by so-claimed expert tunners.

i realy wish your problems will end at this point (though i have strong feeling it wont !)

wish you the best..

To quote a not so famous American president: "I feel your pain". What a disheartening experience. Thank you for sharing your saga with us. It sure will make me and probably many others to think twice if not three and four times before we take that leap of faith and let some after-market tuner touch our S62 engines. Has anyone else had as bad an experience with M5 engine upgrades, tuners, etc.?

Regarding aftermarket tuners...........

DINAN is ridiculously expensive BUT (and that's a BIG but) they seem to be the ONLY choice and the ONLY way to go, when it comes to safely altering/modifying the M5 car. Something to think about. Im sure this thread would make Steve Dinan smile from ear to ear.
