    E34 M5 Discussion
    It has been a while since I last shared an update; to date, I have added 1345km this year, totalling 3253km since the conrod bearings have been replaced. Most of the mileage this year has been added during a driving-event with friends to the Eiffel and Rhineland Palatinate just recently. This...

    Since my picture host doesn't allow third party image hosting on the free-account anymore, the picture links are not visible. This is now the second time that they have F***ED up. To allow third party image hosting, I have to pay them US$500 each year, which a rip-off. I won’t allow them to...

    E34 M5 Discussion
    The last documented UOA of my E34S M5 was performed in September 2015 at 191568km. This UOA already demonstrated elevated wear levels of copper, iron and lead, which pointed towards bearing wear. Originally, it was planned to replace the conrod bearings in the winter of 2015/2016, however two...

    I have checked my picture archives and the small disc was in place during disassembly as well as during assembly. I never questioned its function other then it must be there for a reason.

Just prior to the summer holiday season, I used #231 for a driving tour with ‘BMW Klassiek’, one of the official BMW...

  19. Brake Hoses - who makes OEM ?

    E34 M5 Discussion
    I agree; I have Stainless reinforced Teflon Brake lines (From ABM Stahlflex) on my E28S M5 as well. As the outer-sleeve that protects the stainless reinforcement and inner teflon core is black, they just look like OEM, but just a little thinner. These also came with a TuV certificate that allows...
