  1. Do I need to install water/meth system?

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Do you have to get a new tune whenever swapping pulleys? So if I decided to change in the future I’d have to get another tune?

    Thanks for the advice. So what you’re saying is that the 92mm pulley doesn’t actually add any overall horsepower? It just makes boost kick in at lower rpm? If I stuck with the stock pulley would just an intercooler be sufficient? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Is an intercooler more “fool proof”? What I mean is less things to fail and worry about, like installing gauges, installing a tank and rerouting wires, etc? Or does an intercooler also have its own issues? (I’m aware sometimes you have to trim the bumper but that’s not a big deal to me)...
  4. Do I need to install water/meth system?

    I’m getting the ESS VT-1 560 kit and swapping for a 92mm pulley. My M5 is completely stock before this. Is a water/meth system necessary? Or an inter cooler? I am not planning any other modifications besides this supercharger kit. Is it fine to just use what’s in the kit? I’ve read that some...
  5. What a fine job RMS did! Check this out

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Was thinking about getting their supercharger kit for my e39.... so you would recommend against it? Is it just their customer service that is bad or are the components bad too? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. How did he get these exhaust pops?

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Pretty sure my F80 that I bought brand new wasn’t broken. It was bone stock. The burbles and pops are part of the competition package. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    I was on Instagram and saw this guys E39 M5. He somehow has a burble tune or something that has the pops and bangs when lifting off the throttle. Anyone know how to do this? I know you can tune it in on modern cars, but how did he do it on an E39? Could it be potentially bad for the engine? I...
  9. New E39 M5 owner, let me introduced you to her.

    Wow great find. You put a lot of work into it too, I bet it drives like new. Can I get your thoughts on the E92 M3 vs E39 M5? I am thinking of selling my E39 M5 to get an e92 M3. But I am not sure if I’d get much satisfaction out of switching. Are they very different? Sent from my iPhone...
  10. Seat twist repaired incorrectly?

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    This sounds like the fix! Thank you for your help. Do I need to remove the seat to unhook just one motor? or can i do it with the seat still bolted to the floor? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Oh so you’re not supposed to cut the cable? You just cut the sheathing and pull the cable further out so the motor has more to grip? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. Seat twist repaired incorrectly?

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    It wasn’t me who paid for the repair, the previous owner did it and I bought the car like this. So is this a pretty easy fix if I were to do it myself? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Seat twist repaired incorrectly?

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    My drivers seat is angled to the right. So when I’m driving and I have both hands on the steering wheel, my upper half of my body is looking to the right towards the center of the windshield. However, all my seat controls are functioning correctly. The both sides of the seat recline at the same...
