Codes?

How many miles?

Original battery?

Original alternator?

Did they go away?

How is the car now?

49,000 miles, new battery and alternator in the last 6 months. Now all that is on is the check engine light.

I was going to that, but I am going to take it to the mechanic in the mourning. Thanks for the help.

if you are in atlanta, pm me or text me. I have many connections with BMW dealers there that could work on your car for a huge discount. Even one of the salesmen at the Atlanta BMW dealer has an E60 M5.

Best,

as a side note, it could be something as simple as your brake booster not holding pressure, if you have limp mode and DSC at the same time.

Be very wary of dealer techs without direct S85 experience. It can turn into a spendy guessing game very fast. Ask for the error codes before you authorize them to repair anything and post them here.

Forum member White94rx is a Master Tech at a dealership in Atlanta and owns an M5 as well. You may be able to contact him here for guidance.

Unlikely as it sounds, this may be the throttle actuator on bank 2. I'm going through the same. Do a search and you'll find it's far from uncommon. And it ain't cheap.

I have seen the same thing on the research I have been doing. What is the common price for something like this?
