You can try www.bmwtips.com . They do not have much on the M5 if I remember correctly, but they have some insightful info on many small fixes for the E39. The suspension is not an easy swap on the E39 and can get quite involved, so make sure you get some info before you go jumping into it. Hope this helps.

bmwtips.com doesn't have the DIY to change coils :sad1:

I'm planning to do this in the next few days with two of my friends (one of them is a mechanic).

BTW, here's the coils:

The KW is a great setup. The install inself is not that difficult, but getting access to the rear strut mounts is a job and a half. You need to remove the entire rear parcel shelf, lighting, speakers, seats, etc just to gain access to the strut bolts. Try running a search on the board to see if you can find any detailed instructions on the procedure.
