    The wagon is now up for sale on BaT: https://bringatrailer.com/listing/2003-bmw-m5-wagon-touring-conversion/
  2. E39 (96-03) Want to Buy Stock Brake Calipers

    Parts / Other For Sale or Wanted
    I have a set ready to ship. $160 within USA takes them. I’d do new pistons and seals but that’s always a good idea with used calipers.

  4. E39 (96-03) For Sale M3/M5 Sport Steering wheel with BRAND NEW LEATHER and EXTRA padding

    Parts / Other For Sale or Wanted
    This wheel was just rewrapped by Dallas Steering wheel in all new leather. The M tri-color stitching is also brand new. I paid extra to have even more padding added for a very thick feel. I went a different route in my M5 wagon project car so this is up for sale. Airbag not included but would...
  5. E39 (96-03) For Sale 2001 M5 Carbon/Black 207k needs work (engine/trans are good)

    Cars For Sale or Wanted
    Just purchased to fix up and sell but looks like time is getting the best of me. 2001 Carbon/black, 207k miles. Interior is rough and has some rust underneath. Brand new rear tires, older fronts. Runs fine but needs driveshaft, probably clutch and flywheel and RMS. Probably also diff seals...

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Thanks, Kevin! I didn't know it but there was also an article about Bring-a-Trailer that appeared in the same issue and there was a photo of the time I sold my E39 M5 sedan to a new buyer on there and him coming to pick up the car.

    Blew out a diff on it several months ago. I thought I posted about that. Replaced with one I found from a local friend and runs fine again. In the process of diagnosing all that we changed out the trans, clutch, flywheel, and driveshaft also.
  8. E39 (96-03) For Sale Apex 19x9.5" PS-7 in E39 center bore w/AS3 tires (set of 4) SQUARE SETUP

    $1875 OBO Picked up in person (do not wish to ship) Up for sale are these 19x9.5" square Apex PS-7 wheels for E39 (fits other BMW with centering rings). I'm selling because I'm going back to Style 65 M5 rims and 18" tires. I can't count the number of comments these wheels have gotten since I...

    Oh, it was very audible

    Tore it apart so I could send the carrier back to diffsonline for some $ - this is big boy damage, not small potatoes:

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Turns out it was the diff after all. I think it was transmitting noise through the DS back to the transmission. I don't know what, but something went wrong inside. Drained fluid and found metal particles: It also wouldn't turn freely by hand. Picked up a used high mileage unit with fingers...

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Interesting. I have a new (used) diff coming this week to test. Worst case I can sell it to diffsonline for carrier core value. The bellhousing requires black oil-resistant RTV when installing it back on the trans casing. We've done 3 of them so far and maybe another one coming soon.

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Here's an update to this issue. Last weekend, Paul came by and we put the car on the lift, wheel-less, and ran it up to speed to find the sound. Once we locked down the rear brake rotors it was very clear to all present (Chuck was here at that moment) that the noise was definitely coming from...

    Mine appears to be broken. Adam has none at the moment. Anyone have one near me or willing to ship for a reasonable price?
  15. OT New to me E46 Daily

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Congrats on your new toy! The E46 makes a great daily. Paul (blackknight) and I built a wagon with full M3 mechanicals that I drive daily for my mobile leather and vinyl repair business. I freakin love the thing. It's not AWD of course, but I don't need that here. So much fun to drive.

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Thanks, Peter. I'm with you on that. Having the supercharger on it, even for a short time, may have been more abusive than I thought. It twisted a Dinan rear swaybar and shredded the trans mounts. I will be checking the engine mounts also, and the exhaust mounts, but hopefully we can figure out...

    Didn't know they made wireless ones. Interesting.

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    No, the reason for doing all this work was to solve the problem. We thought one of those components might be doing it, so we first swapped the DS and trans mounts, then that didn't change anything so we went for clutch and PP/fly, and now it's worse. It had been getting worse before, so I don't...

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Engine mounts are < 20k old, brand new OE when we did S62 swap, but could be worn. Trans mounts were sheared so I replaced them with brand new ones during the clutch/PP/fly/DS/CSB stuff I replaced just now.
