    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion

  11. Gloss Roof Wrap Advice

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Regardless of what you tell them, they should trim each body panel separately, either by applying separate thin strips to the outer panels, or by using one piece for the initial install and then trimming afterward(with "cut tape"not knives).It may be a moot point since the max width of most wrap...

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    hmmm Thanks, Tim, I was wondering the same thing, but since they're such a pain to get to I was hesitant to delve into that. Anyone know how to tell ahead of time if they're failing/failed? Is this a common failure on our cars?
  14. opinions of sudden increase in oil consumption

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Chariot, Thanks for the advice. I assume what you're telling me, is to let it idle so as to come up to temp and let any oil drip past the seals. Then look at the exhaust when I give it some throttle to detect any smoke? If no smoke go to step two. Step two, go to intake means, I assume to...

    I suspect the answer is yes to both. Got the NSU in '66 as my first street bike. Been riding-racing ever since. I restore and race vintage bikes as well as ride modern. My one Triumph I started racing with AAMRR when it was"modern", been racing since '70, with USCRA/WERA/AMA/AHRMA; no longer...
