    94,000 mi. $15,000obo. Silverstone/Silverstone. Some cosmetic blemishes, interior could use some work, but runs strong, I replaced the clutch/flywheel about 5 years ago. SMG pump/pack was replaced about a year ago. LCI headlights/tail lights with updated control module and programmed...
  5. Dash light stays on, killing my battery

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    anyone, what needs to be replaced? where can I find a CAS module for the rear door?

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    You may have hit the nail on the head. I will look around for one. Haven't really thought about it, but I know one of my rear doors (I think RHS) has lost its touch sensitivity. What do I need to replace?

    Yes, and for the record, this is when the keys are inside the house, away from the car.

    My SMG pump went out last year and was replaced through a local BMW indy shop. My time frame is fuzzy, I don't recall which stuff started happening before or after the repair, but I will say, the car is driving just fine, right now. Around the same time of the replacement (I want to say...
  9. Need help, leather looks horrible

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Been meaning to log back in. 06, 90,000mi. About the only stuff I've tried, so far, are basic 2-part cleaner/protectors that you can find at Auto Zone. Usually decent, but not generally the specialty type stuff you can only find online or at trade shows. I'll take a look at the soilove...
  10. Need help, leather looks horrible

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    I'm looking to sell the car and I need to get it looking top notch. The Silverstone interior is impossible to keep clean. Leather cleaners and conditioners only have limited or temporary effects. Do I need to re-dye it or see a professional?
  11. Time to cut my losses and give up the V10 life

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    It's the luck of the draw, but I can't simply say I just got a bad car of the bunch. I think that all E60s are prone to the same risks, it really seems to come down to small things, like sensors, regulators, buttons, and other little things wearing out. The other problem is that things tend to...

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    For the record, I may just go back to an E46, if the E90 isn't any better. I could at least work on the E46 in my driveway, like any other car. I won't dare even look at an SMG trans. One thing I will do is get an aftermarket warranty on anything I buy, from now on. I denied the warranty on...

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Just a quick update. The car finally got a reservation at the local indy shop. They're running a complete re-calibration on the car and seeing if there are any software upgrades to be had. A lot of stuff went into error due to my failing alternator, but I'm not sure when it comes to the...

    And if you are a fan of SMG, then you simply don't understand how it feels to see $11,000 leave your pocket on a car that you JUST BOUGHT for $30,000. Oh, and the cause of this $11,000 blunder: Input shaft sensor konked out while I was driving along on the highway. Now after I replaced the...

    DO you think I will regret buying an '08 M3 6MT? Maintenance-wise. If the 6MT is an insult to the M5, the SMG is an Insult to the M5's driver. SMG is the only thing I hate about the car. It is the cause of all of my break downs, sensor problems, having to get out and push my $100,000 car...

    For the record, some problems that are looming around the corner: -Vanos is making a little extra noise at idle, has for a while, now. Time to think about that -Sunroof makes the "cabinet full of dinner plates" rattling noise and also seems to trip out when it thinks something is obstructing...
  17. Possibly trading my E60 M5 for a E90 M3

    E30 E36 E46 E90 E92 E93 M3 Discussions
    I was hoping to see a sticky about any maintenance related items I should be aware of. I keep my E60 in perfect shape, I try to keep up with everything that is necessary to be done, but I've lost the battle, I cannot keep up with all the SMG issues, the possible Vanos issues looming...

    It's neither the Battery nor the alternator. The battery is about a year and a half old. The Alternator is about 3 weeks old and I replaced it because of the regulator failing. I know what a failing regulator looks like. Each fault is a legitimate problem, at least the pre-existing ones...

    I don't know how you guys do it. I've been a car guy for almost 15 years, when possible, I do my own work, I thought I could keep any car running. This beast is sucking down about $1100 or so per month, just in repairs and maintenance. SMG has GOT TO GO. Back to a 6-speed, back to something...
  20. Lubro/Liqui Moly Better than Castrol

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    What makes you say that? If it's based on your initial thoughts, right after a change, fresh new oil has much different properties than the outgoing. I thought I'd add to this tired old discussion. At my car's age and mileage, the idea of using Castrol just to fulfill the dealership's...
