I currently have 64,000 miles on my 2008 M5 SMG. I have been reading threads and posts mainly by TROY JEUP stating that the rod bearings and vanos line need to be serviced to prevent engine failure. When would these need to be serviced and does that mean replaced? WPC - Surface Treated Rod Bearings - BMW E46 M3, E9X M3 & E60 M5 -- WPC001

How much will this cost me and where would I have this done?
Also 0W-40 or 10W-60????!!!

I would do it at 75k if I were you since you have an 08. Oil changes every 5k miles.

You make it sound like I am a bad guy...lol. I am just sharing info.

If you currently have a warranty, don't waste your money swapping them out until the warranty expires. Any rod bearing failures would be covered by almost all warranties.
