  1. Adding second drain plug?

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    It's not going to be thicker than where the other oil drain hole is; you could measure this. If you do it while it's on the car you are risking shavings being deposited & unable to fetch them out.

    Removing Air Collector My tip for loosening the screws in step 5; they are 6mm so you can use a socket overtop. In the 5th position on Bank 1 I use a universal joint wrapped with elastics to provide some stiffness and flexibility over the fuel rail. 1/4" drive, 12" extension. Now, when...

  7. S85 High Pressure Vanos Line

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Yes it does help, thanks. What did you use for an attachment to pressurize? I have been looking for something quick/easy at local auto parts but nothing is off the shelf. I assume I could adapt from an air fitting to some sort of banjo fitting? I do see this specialty BMW tool; 83300495130 which...
  8. S85 High Pressure Vanos Line

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    I've reviewed the TIS documents on replacing this line and G.A.S.'s docs on the bearing replacement but still left with some questions. The internal line is fitted from the outside next to the water pump; this is the second "T" connection in the system, the other (for external line) is at the...

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Thank you! How would one prime the system such as this and the high pressure pump prior to start-up? I'm sure I'll have more questions once further into the process.

    I posted this over in the "Colorado M5 owners" thread. Can either of you recommend a shop which can put a second drain plug in my oil pan? Aside from that do either of you have any local Denver or CoSprings shops to recommend? Not having the requisite 30 "pat on the back" posts has it's...
