Link above no longer works.

Has anyone in Australia had their rod bearings replaced on their V10 M5 or M6 as preventative maintenance against the premature wear in these bearings? If so what did it cost and where was it done? Has anyone actually thrown a bearing and required an engine rebuild?

I'm contemplating doing some preventative maintenance. It seems they grenade around 150k's if they're going too. So I've got another 80k until I reach that, admittedly anecdotal, threshold but will pull the trigger well before. I've been sending technical's and processes to my mechanic here in Sydney for a few weeks.

Cheers,
Matt

General consensus is to definitely get them replaced as preventative maintenance before the 150,000km mark if you're planning on owning the car long-term.

Iím in the proses in doing mine at home. Using ACL bearings cost of $215 for the lot. I guess if your only interested in doing the bearings then I guess with bearings, new oil, new gaskets you be looking at around just over 300 bucks provided you do it your self saving over $1500 in just labor. Itís a petty straight forward job if you just doing the bearings.
Iím going a full engine upgrade including vanos gears, vanos like line, oil squirters, oil pump chain tensioner and a full 100km service. Parts in total $3000 AUD. Not so bad considering I payed Audi $1700 for a 50,0000 service that was just a oil change and filters.

Good morning muckman83,
Thank you for your reply and kindness !!

I just dropped off my car this morning...
Apparently my battery, brake pads will need to be replaced &#x1f61e;

My car is on 81xxx kms now... if you could guide me how to change the fluids, that will be much appreciated! I might change them again at 100,000kms. (Will change engine oil more sooner)

I am still very new to the m6... (its been a week since I got the car haha) I am still learning what should be changed/maintained !

Thank you again for your time !

Keep an eye on super cheep oils
They just had a 40% sale on there Castrol edge 10w60
I picked up 6 bottles cause itís so cheep and saves you in the long run.
Change your fuel filter and o2 sensors at 100kms
Being that itís 2006 you gonna wana do all the engine updates and replace rod bearings
So vanos gears
Vanos line
Vanos pump chain tensioner
Oil squirters
I also went for a full service including fuel filter, new injectors, new charcoal canister, throttle body and idle actuator clean, new air filters, new spark plugs, new coil packs, new brake fluid. Maybe if your willing nee maf sensors.
