I just did my M5 InspII....

1035 6
I had a day off and knocked off the Inspection II on my M5. What an easy car to service, compared to my Fcars.

Changing the spark plugs was a bit painful.......maybe I'm getting too old as all those little ground wires were playing games with my eyes!!

What do I need to do to reset the service light? Thanks...........

I've used this procedure for some time for pre2001 BMW's. Open the round diagnostic plug under the hood on the passenger side of the car. Take a 12-volt test light ground it, and repeatedly touch and release on terminal number seven of the plug with the ignition key in the ON (2) position for a couple of seconds. If it doesn’t reset try again until it does.

Good luck
