  2. E63 M6 does not go into reverse unless i go to D first

    E63/E64 M6 Discussion
    Hi all, sometimes my 2009 E63 M6 does not engage reverse gear and wont show R on the dash if I select reverse straight after turning the car on: even with the gear stick in R, it just shows N. I can get it to engage reverse by going from N to D and then across to R, and then everything...
  3. SMG clutch valve characteristics and power steering

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    So, in addition to rod bearings, I changed out the slave cylinder, PLCD sensor, and pump motor on the SMG. I filled the reservoir with hydraulic fluid, loosened the bleed screw a few turns on the hydraulic block and just let the pump motor come on by itself. I drained about a half liter at a...
  4. SMG Crush washer dilemma

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    While working on the hydraulic unit of my SMG, one of the crush washers for the pressure supply line to the unit was inadvertently lost. No big deal, I'll get another one... Except that upon looking up the part #, a replacement crush washer (23017838941) is $80. Yeah... A $0.50 washer being sold...

  8. SMG Refurbishing

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Hey guys, late summer my clutch started slipping under power sporadically, so I figured it must be the throwout bearing, seems i was right as mine has severe wear on its inner bore and it jams up really easily. the clutch itself looks like it's still got tons of life left but I'll replace it and...

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    For those who has fitted custom friction material to our SMG clutch, I was wondering if some one could tell the maximum thickness is allowed for clearance for both inner and outer disks.

I recently purchased a 2006 E60 M5 and while I've played with Carla to flash some of the light and mirror options I'm looking for an actual shop in Las Vegas who can flash the SMG to go with the Euro SMG software to tighten up the shifting etc. Does anyone recommend a good indy E60 M5...

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Hey guys, for the past week or so I've been getting an intermittent red cog which shows up for about a second or 2 :eek and goes away on its own.

    Hello M5BOARD, I'm looking to get an E63 M6 or a Mercedes C63 AMG. What things should I look for when test driving an M6? Should I avoid SMG or get a manual? The closest 6MT I've found is 1500 miles away from me (2008 black on brown, 38K miles). Is this car really that expensive to maintain? I...
