Hey guys. Woke up on saturday, went to just to look at an X6M and ask if they would just straight up buy my 930 Turbo because i was trying to sell it. Came home with This! :biggrinbounce:





Its a 2007 (10/06) with 72k miles SMG.
Pretty loaded, sat nav, parking sensors, comfort entry, sat radio, blah blah still discovering things.
Alcantara headliner :)!!
Carbon fiber interior trim
Carbon fiber Roof

Im still learning this car, didnt even come with a manual :(
Im no stranger to BMW but i am new to the e60/63 M5/6

Gonna hook up my laptop and try to code out some things such as seatbelt warning, key in ignition warning, Convert to KM, WIndows up with key, and the Accept screen and whatever else i find.

Not perfect, i think the washer tank is leaking.

Couple question, it was a bit low on oil, i dint have 10-60 is it okay if i added about 2qts of 10-40?
they did an oil change but i dont think they filed it up all the way. Yes i kow about oil level sensor but mine seems to be reading correctly..

Ill probably do it at the end of the next week again just to be safe.

Also where can i get that clip on cupholder?
and you cant play music through Bluetooth riught?

forgot my other question, sorry.

I'll answer the one I do. I think you're supposed to leave it in Drive but I always do N just in case it doesn't start and I have to tow. Just in case...

Congrats on your new ride!
Here's a link to the manual download:

Owner's Manual Videos - BMW North America

I'd go through it.
There's a lot of little bells and whistles you'd never know about.

When you park, put it into drive.

Not an expert, but I would not mess with the oil- stick to what's recommended.
Someone else may chime in on this.

Good luck!!!

Congrats and welcome to the V10 club.

I usually keep my in neutral as well like Boss for the same reason. Unless I am on a hill, I keep it in drive to be more comfortable.

As far as recalls go, I believe you can go to any BMW dealership and they can check any open recalls based on your VIN.

No music through bluetooth unfortunately.

Read the manual too learn about all the "extra" little features about the car and enjoy in good health.

Very nice. You have great taste in cars. I am currently on the fence between an M6 and an air cooled 911. It's weird because the cars are nothing alike, but those are the only things calling my name right now.

Congrats!

The leaking windshield washer tank is common, could be one of two things, the pump (seals fail) or the tank (sometimes a screw will rub and wear through). If you are handy and want to fix yourself you take off the front drivers side wheel and it can be accessed by removing the wheel liner, it is under the front bottom of the bumper. The pump is $70 or so. Not sure on the tank but most of the time it is the pump.
