I saw a brand new M5 that was brought in because it was running like **** with ~ 1.5Kmiles on it yesterday, at my stealer, it needs a new engine - BECAUSE - owner removed both sets of air filters - the carbon filters and the standard air filters. Engine and oil was filled with dirt and sand and metal shavings......
- so sad!!! wonder where he got his advice?

LOL...

It would be very interestinbg to know how much he gets charged for fixing it.

Just reminds me of this guy I knew in Durham...

He had some little citroen saxo, someone asked him if he had put any oil in his car recently.
He then bought some oil and put it in the petrol tank....

Kept me laughing for weeks. dingbat

Removing your air filter is beyond stupid.. drive through some construction dust and your car is screwed. Removing the charcoal filter is fine.. no harm.

European cars don't even come with them from the factory.

2006 M5 charcoal filters removed after 1200miles and kept out for 2 years. No issues.

Keep em in, gain performance. :M5launch:
