    I bought this back in late 2016 and have been using it as a lower mileage DD while seeing how things have been sorted. Lots of small warts to take care of, but nothing too bad. It's been a FL car until last summer, at which point it was a SC car, and now a NC car. I'm the 5th owner. It was...

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    I have a mystery 'whirr'whirr'whirr' sound under power. Im thinking its a bearing, but my wheel bearings seem ok. So far I'm hoping/guessing alternator bearings. Anyway, when I push in the clutch it goes away but if I push the clutch in while rolling and rev it I can hear it [seems to be fairly...
