  1. E39-F10 ?

    F10 M5 Discussion
    No manual transmission available in the UK, sadly.
  2. “New to me” (used) M5 f10 warranty

    F10 M5 Discussion
    Probably useful to know what country/state you're in as I'm sure that things are different on our side of The Pond to the USA, for instance... But welcome to the club anyway.
  3. E39-F10 ?

    F10 M5 Discussion
    Reading your post some more. You've done pretty much everything to the E39 short of supercharging it. If, for instance, you were to replace the head unit with an Android one that looks almost OEM (here's a thread about doing that...
  4. E39-F10 ?

    F10 M5 Discussion
    Hi Gervase, I couldn't bear to part with my E39 so still have it. And the F10. There's no doubt that the F10 is a better car in every way - it's faster, more comfortable, better equipped and probably more planted. But the E39 grabs me in ways that the F10 never can or will... I know that's not...
  5. F10 M5 buyer's guide

    F10 M5 Discussion
    I don't think there's been an exodus, just that perhaps the F10 is a little too new for lots of DIY. And perhaps a little difficult to work on as well... Certainly it's always felt quiet compared to the E39 forum as well...
  6. Dashboard Colour

    F10 M5 Discussion
    Good point. I'm talking about ambient light. There are no dash lights as such because the clocks are the lights... So it didn't occur to me that the OP may have meant that. So it's possible we are both right - the ambient lighting can be changed but the clocks are shades of grey depending on...
  7. F10 security ~ do you add more ?

    F10 M5 Discussion
    Hi Dan, Just a tracker and factory alarm/immobiliser here. If you download the app you should be able to track it and log in to see where it is if you're away and have parked it in, say, long term at the airport. You can also use it to unlock the car from your phone when you lock the keys in...
  8. Dashboard Colour

    F10 M5 Discussion
    Nope. Go into the idrive and settings. There's an interior lights option in there somewhere that gives the choice of classic (orange) or modern (white) If you can't find it, look in the interactive handbook, also on the idrive.
  9. E39 M5 Owners Midlands, UK

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    I'm originally from Oxfordshire (technically midlands) but now in the SE. There's already an M5 WhatsApp group but it seems mainly to be F10s. In fact thinking about it, the only E39 now is me... Welcome to the board, anyway.
  10. Whats with all the 2013 M5's

    F10 M5 Discussion
    Nothing actually wrong with the earlier ones at all, there was just a facelift (what BMW called LCI) in 2014 which mainly gave an improved i-drive and (I think) a few standard features which used to be options. I'm in the UK so it may be different for you. And my M5 is a '15 so... Cheers
  11. Purchasing an F10

    F10 M5 Discussion
    Hi Richie, There's a couple of folks here from oop North - I'm not as you can see, so I can't recommend an indie up that way. I would certainly suggest that it's worth driving down either to Phil Crouch at CPC in Amersham (Bucks) or Jags at BM Sport in Bexley (Kent) if you can't find one. My...
  12. Purchasing an F10

    F10 M5 Discussion
    Hi Richie, It'll be easier for people to give you relevant advice if you give us some clues as to what you're after and the context - what are you coming from and where in the world are you? Welcome to the board :)
  13. More Fake M5's!!!!

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    There's this really quite nice M5 up the road from me... https://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/attachment.php?attachmentid=882626&thumb=1 Good number plate as well, if a little ostentatious... https://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/attachment.php?attachmentid=882628&thumb=1 Except...
  14. Front Camber Adjustment - plates/bushes etc?

    F10 M5 Discussion
    Barney, have you tried talking to Johannes? He may have some ideas...
  15. Electric power drain

    F10 M5 Discussion
    Ouch. Makes me glad I went for the BMW Trackstar option - at leat if that causes a problem they can't wriggle out of it... Though it probably won't stop them from trying. Hope you get it sorted.
