    I was stuck in bumper to bumper traffic when my car triggered the red cog transmission “fail-safe” program. I couldn’t move or accelerate or do anything. I tried turning the car off and on, but no luck. Eventually a tow truck towed me home. I plugged in my Carly adapter, cleared the codes, and...

    Most of my cars are far more simple and pre 2000 (E36 M and others). I have purchased my second 2007 M6 SMG. My first one never had any type of issue. I bought it with 50k mikes on it and put 60k more before I sold it. Left paddle shifter was the only thing to break and I replaced myself...

    Hello, my M5 was having some issues shifting when I first bought it with 85k miles. The issue at first was when I would shift from 7th to 6th it would clunk 3 times really hard like it was trying to shift but couldn't I then got the red cog of death. This eventually went away and I would just be...

    Hey guys… I got a 2008 M5. SMG trans. Currently have a F.A.M.S. Tune. I love the tune. Also have K&N filters. Really didn’t wanna go with K&N but they were the only filters available during the pandemic. Everything else was on back order. I just want to make my car a little bit faster. I wanted...

    I'm interested to know which shift speed setting for the SMG puts the least wear on the clutch. I've seen people talk about it before and my understanding is that the quickest shift modes slip the clutch less and therefore result in less wear, however I'm unsure if this is totally correct. Also...

    Hello, I recently purchased a very rough e60 m5 that had a failing SMG hydraulic pump. The car would consistently throw the 4f43 and 4f42 codes. I have just replaced the smg pump and am trying to bleed the actuator block and adapt the clutch/gearbox. When attempting to bleed the actuator block...

    Hey everyone, so we had symptoms of our clutch slipping in our M5's SMG. Anything over 3k-ish, loss of power, revs jump up a bit, and trans malfunction error on the info screen. Felt identical to a clutch slipping, but with no experience with SMG, who knew. We ended up dropping the trans and...

    Hi, me again, I think I have one of “those” M5’s Recently I noticed firstly that between around 900-1100 rpm, the car seems to shake a bit under any level of acceleration . As I remember it’s only when it’s in gear and also one first gear to second. Or on second gear from zero km/h (although...

    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...

    I was searching through the Aftermarket Performance MODs sticky and couldn't easily find any information for upgrades/mods for the SMG transmission? Can anyone point me to some resources or share their experience with upgrades/mods you've performed with your SMG transmission? My car pulls...

    I've been trying to teach in the adaptation on my SMG over the past few days. Many of you with SMG, have been able to go through this process without issues so it would be interesting to see if you hear the same things. For this video I think the noises are "normal" for the process. Like many...

    Hey guys I could really could appreciate some insight here. My M5 wouldn’t shift gears while driving on the freeway so I pulled over and called a tow. When the tow came with a flatbed it was still stuck in 7th but the driver said it was fine and proceeded to pull the car onto the bed with the...
