Hi guys, I just bought a 2001 M5 about 3 weeks ago. Drove 5 hours to get it.
Loving the car and glad to see a good community keeping these things alive!

Car:
2001
Silver
Vorsteiner CF hood
Shark tune
Corsa exhaust
aFe stage II intake

Thanks for all the awesome threads. Its kept this whole thing going for me.
There's no excuse for not searching either. Without ever posting on this site
I changed so far:
Fuel Pump (Walbro F20000169)
Fuel filter
Thermostat
(thanks ECS tuning from right down the road!!)
INPA software + cable

I'm blanking on anything else, but I at least try and do one thing a day nice for the car lol.
look forward to posting a little more on here.

Welcome!

I'm new too - don't be afraid to post if you searched and didn't find it though! I got in trouble while changing some CPS sensors and it turns out it wasn't even my fault! go figure... but the forum saved my ***.

anyway - that's a nice ride - esp. in Ohio. lots of straight roads to drive on! lol. enjoy!

I don't think you have been to Ohio much, there are great twisty back roads here, you just have to know where to look. :M5launch:

Welcome! I'm sure the resident trolls will thank you for using the search in equal proportion to how much they would slam you for not using it.

Ask away! and don't worry your car won't break as often as you'll be worried that it will from forum addiction.




And for god's sake let's see some pics.

Congrats on the purchase and welcome to a world of maintenance. The resident gurus will be able to point you in the right direction and if you need any used parts, I imagine that Adam (Clemster) will have it.

Now that you have your Beast, we all expect you to be at TimmayFest this year!

No, because there is the hassle of shipping it to you. I, on the other hand, would drive to Canton where we'd do a cash and swap deal. Oh, yeah, welcome OP. Nice car.
You have the hassle of having to repaint it and in the process might even ruin the carbon fibre. I, on the other hand, would simply install the hood and call it a day. I could even ship my stock hood so "User Name" wouldn't be hoodless! :biggrinbounce:

I got dibs.
