  2. The SAGA of my M5 (still love her tho)

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Hello all. Had my beast for over a year now but probably this is the first post I am making (recently got permission to post) so I shall dig right in. I shall first go over the mods that were already on the car when I bought it: 1) supersprint headers (catless), hartge accelerator booster, K&N...
  3. DIY: Doors Locking Problem

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Hi guys, Some time ago the rear left door of my M5 E39 started locking and unlocking later than the other doors. You can hear/see the other doors lock and then a second or two later, the rear left door locks. This happens sometimes but not always. Recently I locked the car and the left rear...
  4. E39 M5 VANOS Board Jammed

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    I do apologize, this might be a long post. :typing: Well, I'm in a little bit of a jam, literally. The good thing is, its just the solenoid board is jammed inside the vanos unit. The background information: My M5 was idling a little rough, loss in power, 3rd gear pulls would throw it...
  5. Navigation screen not closing...

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Hi All, I'm having a problem with my 16:9 screen. When I unlock the car the navigation screen opens. Once it opens, after a few seconds it automatically closes. However, upon closing I can hear the electric motor in the head unit continuing to work as it maintains the screen in the closed...

  7. Weird Air Conditioner FSU Problem

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    So I took my beast to my parents home to top up its AC gas with my father's filling equipment. I ran the AC using the MAX button for about a few minutes and then at lower speeds for 10 - 15 minutes tops while we topped up the gas. It was all fine and dandy. Later on my drive home, the cosmic...
  8. Possible clutch problem?

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    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...
  9. Question to ACS D.F.C. owners

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Hi everyone! I have AC Schnitzer D.F.C. installed on my M5 2001. After total painting works (suspension was de-installed too) D.F.C. does not work properly. Very often when I start the engine, it displays "SYSTEM ERROR" message and operates only in hard way, like "Race Track". But even if it...
  10. Erratic Fuel Gauge

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    I have had an issue with the fuel gauge in my 2005. It will for no apparant reason appear that the tank is filling up whilst sitting at stop for an extended period of time. Usually takes 10-15 seconds at least for the fun to begin. The driving range also increases. I then drive off and the...
