    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Hi guys, I need to replace my front shock absorbers whilst keeping the stock springs because I have just bought a whole load of new Lemforder suspension components for the front axle for a full refresh so makes sense doing the shocks to which are well and truly finished. I cannot afford the...

    I know this topic has probably been exhausted, but I am thinking on upgrading a few things. My current setup is all stock, except the Evolve tune, RPI scoops and block off plates, carbon delete. Nothing major. I do not track the car, but I DRIVE and enjoy it daily. I would like to...
  10. 2002 M5 rear suspension sag

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    So unfortunately I noticed over the weekend that the rear suspension is sagging on the drivers side. See the pics below for a better idea. My question is what is my best course of action. This is my daily driver and I like to keep it in good shape but it is by no means a garage queen. I don't...

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Following my recent on going electrical problems, I was on the way back from a BMW indie minding my own business to be hit by a shocking driver who did not slow down or look at a give-way crossroad today :grrrr:. He hit me at 30MPH which gave my car a real shunt sideways. I saw him not stopping...

  14. Steering Shake/Wobble

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    :1zhelp:. Disconcerting and somewhat worrying is a wheel wobble/shake that I'm now experiencing on my 2002 E39 M5 (78,000 miles). On a smooth road (very rare in the UK I know) there is very little sign anything is wrong; only occasionally will I feel a slight wobble when braking down from >...
