    Here's the right oil for F10 M5 See attached file for BMW's recommended oils for F10 M5. Mike
  2. 2013 M5 Owners Manual Finally Available (PDF)

    F10 M5 Discussion
    Sure you can - it costs about $100,000 (+/-) and comes with a 2013 M5... :) Mike
  3. Just In: F10 M5 Facelift LCI coming 2013!

    F10 M5 Discussion
    It's happened before. The E39 M5 came out in 2000 and in 2001 they facelifted the E39 (angel eyes, etc.). Mike
  4. Engine power reduced only in M mode, any ideas?

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    My suggestion - check the catalytic converters. I have personal experience in the past with BMW Catalytic Converters that have basically "fallen apart" on the insides. When you get up to high RPMs the "pieces" of catalyst will partially clog up the exhaust flow and result in cylinder misfires...
  5. Sirius Help Needed

    Re: Boil it down for me - Sirius Help Needed BTW, the latest bulletin indicates it DOES REQUIRE VERIFICATION.
  6. Sirius Help Needed

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Re: Boil it down for me - Sirius Help Needed You don't need to change your NAV unit - that is the same HW/SW I have and Sirius works fine with it. http://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?p=558891#post558891
  7. Want to do auto headlamps...

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Do you mean to say that if you park your car on the side of a busy street and want to leave the parking lights on until you return to your car that a Toyota would turn them off for you? If so, that's a "feature" I don't want.

    Not quite that simple. Covered before, see here and read through this thread: http://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=51521&highlight=automatic+headlights

    That's a push button switch to calibrate / deactivate the RDW tire defect system.
  11. M5 Bidding War

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    It is sad that in the 4th largest city in the US there are only 3 BMW dealerships. You might as well tell us which one it is - Advantage (downtown or Clear Lake), Momentum or BMW of Houston North? By comparison, last time I checked there are 11 or so BMW dealerships located in the 3rd...
  12. New Radio/Sirius install - Problems!

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Good to hear you're making progress, Brian. Re: the CD not turning off - this is not JUST a function of which radio you have but rather a function of the radio, Sirius & nav. My system would turn off the CD until I installed Sirius and that is when it would occasionally let the CD run after...
  13. New Radio/Sirius install - Problems!

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Adam - unfortunately, my install was the same as yours (I have an 02/2003 production M5). Additionally, the dealer changed out my radio under warranty so I didn't even do that - I did go back in the shop and watch, however, and it was unscrew one nut, unplug the radio, plug in the new...
  14. CPO Cost on 2003 M5

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    I agree and either way looks like you got a good deal on the extended maintenance plan.
  15. CPO Cost on 2003 M5

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    The "full maintenance" plan and the "extended warranty" plan are two completely different animals. Since you bought a CPO vehicle you already had the extended (CPO) warranty included in the purchase price. You purchased the full maintenance extension which your dealer quoted you a...
