  1. Arrrrrrrgghhh! It hailed on my M5!!!

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    You're the lucky one, this year while on holiday suddenly it started to hail... and not your average hail, big chunks! Front windshield broken and the car is full of little pits which aren't obvious from a distance but you can see them very clearly when you get closer. Oh well... I was gonna...
  2. Opinion about why BMW's break down so often...

    Off Topic Forum
    No that's the old branch. Nowadays Philips owns the biggest chunk. Everybody keep in mind that this thread is based on hear/say. I mean my friend could've been joking and maybe I misunderstood him or maybe he's telling me these things just out of frustration because he want's back. It's nowhere...

    I used to work for Philips Medical Systems untill they sold it off after which I got transfered to Philips Automotive and I can tell you that there's a world of difference between the two. There's absolutely no comparison between Philips Medical and Philips Automotive just like there's no...

    As we all know most of the electronics in BMW cars are supplied by Siemens VDO. One of my employees left my company because he got a better offer from Siemens VDO Dayton and thought it would be better for his carreer to work for a big company. I'm still in touch with, from the way he's talking...
  5. Rear Axel/Suspension modifications

    E63/E64 M6 Discussion
    As with all cars and bikes, they should completely change the oil. There was some issue with the suspension a while back, don't remember the exact details though.

    What camera did you use to take those pictures?
  9. Some things that are NOT better in the new M6

    E63/E64 M6 Discussion
    Allmost all of the things you mentioned have a reason, it's just what the engineers decided was best. 1) Those plastic panels are "selfhealing" at low speeds which means if you bump into something you'll have minimal damage also it's weight saving. Think those are two pros over the metal...
  10. Some things that are NOT better in the new M6

    E63/E64 M6 Discussion
    Those are made that way so they didn't whissle or rattle on the screen at highspeeds. It's either that or pot spoilers on the wiper arms to hold them down. It's you pick... ;)
  11. Something else for us M6 owners to worry about

    E63/E64 M6 Discussion
    Yes the encryption used in those little fob keys is outdated but you have to remember that there's a limit to what you can do electronics wise. The 20 minutes thing is way too optimistic, if you are lucky you'll hit the right sequence on the first try but it could take anywhere from several...

    E63/E64 M6 Discussion
    I don't know about BMW but my guess is that the conventienal locks are way more vulenrable then the computer systems. The scary part is that there are instruction videos (yes these really do exist) and complete software sets which explain how you can break into a car and disable the immobelizer...
  13. Time to update the numbers once again fellaz!

    E63/E64 M6 Discussion
    This has been discussed before and I'm not sure wether you are the same guy, but why would anybody wan't to give you such detailed information about their car when they can obtain the same information through their dealer or BMW. Why do you need such detailed information to track a car in the...

    I'm not gonna name any names cause of professional reasons but here's how the story goes. One of my customers is a huge transport and warehousing company, they're huge and they're well known. If I mentioned the name you guyz would be like "aaaaaah yes". Anyway what these guys do is...
  16. Removing sound insulation in engine compartment

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Maybe (I SAID MAYBE) your engine will take longer to heat up cause the insulation also has some heat reflective propeties. Other then that don't see any problems, the engine won't make the car any hotter then when you park it out in open sun on a hot summer day.
