o.k gareth how long have you had you're m5 i only live down the road from you in connahs quay
Can't believe it. Just received an e mail from a fellow owner in west Kirby, next minute, you contact me !

I've only had the car a few months, bought iy on ebay, bit of a gamble to say the least. Had usual problems, MAFS camshaft sensors rattling VANOS, perhaps I should have done some more homework!!

Great to hear from you , stay in touch

have you found a cheap place for oil yet
I've just received Castrol 10W60 from a company called OPIE OILS in Cornwall.
4 ltrs for £36.49 including next day delivery. Phone 01209 215164, couldn't be more helpfull. My '99 drinks the stuff, so if you can beat this price let me know. I drive 20,000 a year so every little helps!!

is that the tws or rs,i'm waiting for an email from someone who say he may be able to get cheap oil for me
It's the RS, hope this is ok, I certainly don't want to start another oil related thread !! It's just too complicated.

Smells great too !! but you MUST get a filler funnel, especially when the container is full

where have you been taking you're car for servicing and work- trenics
I've used an independant in Liverpool, I think they are called Autotech.

I don't think they are used to M5s though. They struggled to identify my MAFS problem, it took them two days !! (although they didn't charge for all that time).
I think in the end they called in the master mechanic from Williams to sort it.

I was thinking of recommending this site to them, it's all here somewhere.

I'm sure they are ok for everyday stuff, but I can't get decent recommendation for any garages in this area.
