    Finding a new or alternative mechnic is always a challenge. Just wanted to share with my peers here, I took my 2006 E60 M5 recently to Bimmer Hub LLC in East Cranford, NJ for the first time and they did an incredible job replacing the coil and spark plug to my 9th cylinder. If you are in or...

    I just received shipment of my M5 this past Friday and I'm eager to get it in tip-top shape so I can enjoy driving it in its proper condition. The only issue is... The most I've ever done to any vehicle myself is replace CAIs and some electrical components! So, I'm looking to you all for some...

    I have an '01 M5 and have my alternator off the car. I see that gives me access to the two oil lines that go from the oil filter to the engine mounts. See this diagram: RealOEM.com - Online BMW Parts Catalog I was wondering if anyone has had leakage of the two o-rings (#10 in the diagram) or if...
  5. E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    A month ago, I purchased a 2006 M5. I will get around to posting pictures but I've been rather busy. I'm going to jump ahead to an oil change yesterday. There are enough DIYs around - including that recent video by Baneof Thoth - or whomever, so this is just a basic description of some...

    Reaching out to get some info on your experiences. I have a 07 M6 for which I got an extended warranty, all good for now. If there is people with high mileage on the M6 or M5's, I'd like to know what were the problems faced so far ... I'm in the process of making the decision to stick with it...

    Ok, so I need a car for the winter and sadly the insurance on my M5 is a bit high so I'm going to sell that. I've been looking at 335xi's because it seems to be the best option but I still have a few questions. The vishnu tuning seems to have a huge impact on the power but beyond that I don't...

  11. E63/E64 M6 Discussion
    First, let me say I've got an '07 M6 with 5K miles, and it kicks ***. Stunning performance. But . . . In the last 3,500 miles, I've blown the sidewall on THREE tires -- the stock Michelin Z rated tires. It costs $500+ to replace, and is not under warranty. I don't drive crazy . . . too crazy ...
