Hi,

Ignorant M5 owner needs help :rolleyes: . There's a part on my 2000 M5 that runs under the chin spoiler that looks a bit like a flourescent light bulb, about 18 inches long. Mine just got smashed (dumb parking error :mad: ), but as yet no noticeable effect. Have no idea what this part is, and I know I could look it up, but doing it this way seems quicker, and as it's New Years and I have to go out partying, time is of the essence.

Anyone help me out? What is this part, what does it do, and what happens when it's smashed (And I mean smashed, centre of it is completely missing). Oh, and how much is a new one.....

Cheers and Happy New year

Mitch

Have you got a picture?

Maybe your car has neon fitted?! :cool:

If i'm not mistaken, that particular part is there to protect your spolier from ground clearance damage! So it basically did its job!

Time to get it replaced!

Happy New Year!
