Since I gave my daily driver to my sister when her car crapped out on her, I have been daily driving my m5. Such a joy to drive and always look back when I park. At 84k, I needed an oil change. I went ahead and change the tranny oil with RP Syncromax. I just printed out an Inspection II checklist and check most (but the critical stuff) on the car. This is the first time I really crawled under the car and check stuff out.



Stuff to repair/replace soon:
-Diff axle seals weeping. Good thing I didn't get new gear oil. I'll just put one when I replace the output shaft seals
-Oil separator hose
-Cabin filter

Other notes:
-Brake rotors and pads still a lot left. Noted slight groves on front rotors.
-Serpentine belt good condition, no cracks
-I just recently replaced PS hoses so thats good.

What surprised me is the condition of my suspension. Previous owner took care of the car well.

This put a smile on my face. An almost new looking guibo!


A new looking wishbone, swaybar endlinks


Swaybar brackets looks new too


Up front thrust arm bushings looks good, newing. Tie rod and swaybar bushing looks original but is in good condition


Changes oil; TWS 10W-60. No oil consumption observed. Tranny oil looked black. Changed to RP Syncromax and shifts felt better.
