    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...

    Hi everyone - I'm about to undertake a bunch of work on my 2008 M5, and on the to do list is my clutch. While researching options here, I thought I might indulge in a lightweight flywheel, but having never had one in a road car, specifically something with a rather difficult gearbox to remove, I...

    Hey everyone - I'm wondering if anyone out there has found a solution / way to tune in some better auto blips with the downshifts? I've got a 2008 M5 w/SMG and am about to do a bunch of work on it and this is pretty high up my list on getting it to drive nicer. Any help or advice would be much...

    Hey guys, so my 2006 M5 got towed (pretty sure it was predatory) long story short when I picked it up this morning and started driving I heard some type of nosie, I don’t know how to describe the noise exactly, the closest I can describe it to would be like a squeal/grind type of noise? Other...

    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...

    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...

    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...
