    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 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...

  8. E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Hey guys, I've been trying to separate my transmission from the engine for a few days now with no luck. I managed to pry it out about 1-2cm but it will not move any further. I tried lowering/lifting the jack a bit, pulling from the back, using a pry bar in between.... But nothing seems to work...

    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...

    Not meaning to step on anyone's toes by posting on BMW forum, but I recall seeing some interest in GT350 transmission as potential swap candidate. For anyone interested, I have a TR3160 out of a 2016 GT350 tech pack. It's in great shape, ~5620 Miles on it. Never Tracked nor beat on. Selling...

    Looks like from the car sitting there was a leak that spread to the Transmission and I will be needing a new one. Any E39 transmissions around? Anybody else have this issue from letting their car sit for too long?

    Hello all, I'll start with my questions and provide the background below: 1. Can the SMG on the M5/6 be rebuilt reliably to address a worn synchro? 2. Are replacement parts even available for synchro's etc for SMG? 3. If a rebuild is possible, can anyone recommend a shop with whom they've had a...

    Finally, Sterling is getting her fluids changed. I will be participating in my local BMWCCAs DIY tech session. I have contacted the 'vendor' / 'host' of the session for fluids [since as a courtesy we have been asked to purchase our parts / supplies from the host business] . My question...

    Guys, a while back I listed a custom S38 and 6 speed trans for sale. I figured someone would want to do a really nice swap into an E9 or something. Anyway, no takers on that idea, so decided to sell the trans and engine separately. Here's the listing for the Trans. This is a E34 M5 Euro...

    So my clutch seemed to be struggling recently - banging hard into first, giving me the 'Yellow Cog' when stuck in slow traffic, every now and then I would get the rubber-band affect. . After reading a post on this board I decided, on the off chance, to have my relays replaced. A relatively...

    Hi everyone, I've been a long time lurker of this site and finally signed up. Thank you all so far for the great advice. I have a 2008 e60 M5 with just under 88k miles. Since I bought it, I've replaced the ABS, traction control, control arms, and clutch. The clutch has about 1500 miles on it, if...

    I thought I would throw up a quick post about the battery going bad and I had my car towed (flat bead) to the the dealer and now my car keeps throwing the red cog. I took my car back next day because it was throwing the red cog error (4-5 times per mile) around town. Dealer called to say they...

    I was on the home stretch today in the removal phase of a clutch/RMS change. I had just wrestled with all of the bell housing bolts, that was fun... I had the transmission jack in place and began to separate the engine and transmission. I got it about half an inch out all the way around, and...
