  1. HELP iDRIVE/Computer problem

    E63/E64 M6 Discussion
    Good time of the day fellow members! Straight to the problem. I've been experiencing problems with my iDrive for the past few weeks/month. Everytime I start the car after its been sitting for a long time, or accelerate suddenly to higher RPMs, the whole iDrive (along with music) unit blacks out...

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    I've owned a 2001 M5 since September of 2012 with 86k miles. It now has 131k miles. There is no doubt that this is an expensive car to own, and I embraced that fact when I bought it. As problems came up, I fixed them. I'm not sure exactly when the most recent (and obnoxious) problem came up...
  4. Possible clutch problem?

    Hey guys, I'm relatively new and just got my hands on an '01 M5 last week. So far, it's been everything I'd hoped except for one pretty big problem I'm noticing. When the car is in Sport mode with DSC off, the car will not shift like (I think) it should during hard acceleration. For example...

  7. Jerky acceleration in 1st and 2nd!

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Hi guys, ever since i got the beast i simply cannot, unless i pull off slower than a granny ogling an italian in tight pants, pull off without 'kangarooing' the *****! I thought it was me being a goon, coming straight from a puny diesel van to this, although I have driven stupidly fast cars...
