I think I already broke my hydrostatic transmission - now my car stops every time I drive through water.
You should have kept an eye on your transmission pressure gauge. Every M5 instrument cluster has one. :p
The board has certainly changed with the new excitement of the M5 wearing off to how do I fix it!
That always happens to message boards about cars. Its natural as more and more of the E39 M5s on the road are coming out of warranty and piling on the miles. Plus the value of these cars has diminished fallen from their sticker price therefore the next owner who can afford this now cheaper car isn't always willing to take it to the dealer for every little thing and pay $120+/hr. I watched it happen to an E34 board and an E39 board. Less and less stories about mods and fun driving, more and more about how to fix this or that. You guys will get used to it
