Hi, Steve here, So. Cal BMW club member, 3rd M Car, my M5 with 3200 miles is awesome. I have some common occurences and a couple questions:
1) My shift knob is flaking. Took off ring. Temp fix until replacement.
2) Using K&N Air chargers, uses same filters as 540/740i V8, just two of 'em. Nicer sound, more power? I'm not sure.
3)Takes 2-5 seconds of cranking to re-start after driving and engine up to temp. Normal? Anybody else experiencing this?
4)Oil consumption within others' experiences.
5) Found oil information at European
Castrol website(text in German). They have some great F1 pics and some interesting calendar photos. Worth a look.
6) Found M5 oil at a discount at SSF Motorsports in South San Francisco.
