  2. Power Steering Reservoir Leak

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    it is not a real big deal, but being OCD I am trying to fix this: I have been observing that the power steering reservoir keeps leaking oil through its cap. Tightening the cap does not help. I noticed that there is no gasket on the cap. Looking at I saw that there is a rubber gasket...

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Thanks in advance for your help! I opened the garage door on Saturday evening and noticed that my tail lights were flickering on/off.

    E30 E36 E46 E90 E92 E93 M3 Discussions
    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...
