    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Hey all, I've got a bad DSC pump on my 2006 M5. I need to get a new one but looking for a used model. There are a few on Ebay that say they came off a 535 but will fit an M5. I'm not really wanting to trust it. Does anyone know if these cross reference? If anyone has a pump laying around...

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    So my car has been acting weird lately, ever since I put my snow tires on. I thought it was just the tire break-in period for a while, but now I'm not so sure. When accelerating hard in a straight line, from say 20mph or so, the car will kinda hesitate, flash the DSC light, and start...
