  1. E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    I'm not sure if this topic has been discussed here on here before, if it has please comment a link for it. I found a mint 2008 m5 with 30k miles on it. The car was regularly serviced at a BMW dealer and had the clutch replaced once at the end of 2020. It had only 2 owners who both barely drove...

    Having an issue on cold starts which only occurs on the first start of the day and will not happen thereafter even if the car is left for quite a long time. Essentially the revs bounce between 500 and 1000rpm for a second or two and the engine nearly stalls before the car sorts itself out and it...

  5. E63/E64 M6 Discussion
    Hi guys, I'm going to reach out to all of you in hope to get a little help with my problem! So my dealer (and best friend) was driving my M6 and he forgot that the smg don't really like downshifting from 2 to 1st at slow speeds, so unfortuneatly he did.. My transmission still drives as it...

    Hi folks, Have been reading through the treasure trove of information across m5board on E60/E63 M5/M6s and it's been so helpful as I've been researching a vehicle purchase. Having now put down my cash for an MY07 M6 with ~100,000kms on it, I'm keen to address the rod bearing issues that i've...

  10. E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Hey guys, I am posing this question to get some basic guidance / general recommendations regarding a project I am thinking of. I might get some hate from purists, but come on, give a guy a break. I am just trying to be creative and appreciative of things I like. I want to build a 1968 Pontiac...

    Hey all, I just finished up an S85 starter replacement on a 2008 M6 at my shop. There's not a ton of info on the job and since BMW took down, I figured I'd post some info on it here. The starter itself is not terribly expensive, it's around $180 or so for a new Valeo unit— that's...

  16. E63/E64 M6 Discussion
    Hey guys, new to the forum and just wondering what steps I could take to keep an 06 M6 coupe in pristine condition. I don’t actually own one yet but my friend is selling one with 80k miles and cosmetically it appears to be in great condition and for only $10k I don’t wanna pass it up. I really...

    Based on reviews and what I’ve researched, the best overall tunes that don’t require a dyno seem to be these two. Which one is better? I was going to pull the trigger on FAMS until I heard unsettling stories of blown pistons, and Gintani has a credibility issue? Tuners also laugh at the idea...
  18. E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Hey Guys, I’m wrapping up my s85 swap into my e46 M3 and ready to tackle the electronics. At first I was sold on going stand alone but there seem to be a lot of forward movement with using the stock DME. Is there anyone here knowledgeable or have a good contact of someone capable of flashing the...

    I've reviewed the TIS documents on replacing this line and G.A.S.'s docs on the bearing replacement but still left with some questions. The internal line is fitted from the outside next to the water pump; this is the second "T" connection in the system, the other (for external line) is at the...
