I wish I've replaced all 4 camshaft position sensors while I was right there
The clutch and flywheel were also removed and they were literally begging me, get us out, lol.
Knowing what I know now since I'm still relatively new to M5 world coming from a long time ownership of 540i, it was no brainer.
But, it was one of those deals where after spending quite a few Benjamins on headers, cats, cluth, flywheel etc...I drew the line.
I'm having well know issues with low rpm hesitation and even though no codes present, it's definitely not waste of money to refresh them after 16 years / 111k miles. I have all the records since new and they seem to be original.
FCP Euro has them for $291 shipped, OEM supplier. I'm well aware of debate BMW vs shaved logo etc...but I never had issues with OEM ones.
I'll post my update after replacing them.
