Thumbs down e60 M5 Spark Plug & Air Filter DIY w/ Pics (Good Resource for DIY-ers)

So I was searching m5board, and could only find a step by step e39 M5 spark plug DIY, and not one for a e60.

So after doing a google search, I came across this step by step DIY for e60s spark plugs and air filter that has pictures.

Thought I should share this with the fellow community and allow others to save some money from the dealership

BMW E60 M5 DIY: Spark Plug Replacement

BMW E60 M5 DIY: Air Filter Replacement

(sorry if this is a repost, or there is in fact a DIY for e60 M5).

Retired: 2006 e46 ///M3 Silver-Gray SMG (sold)

Current: 2008 e60 DINAN
///M5 Interlagos Blue SMG
DINAN 3.91 Differential, Stage 2 Suspension, Free-flow exhaust, Stage III Software, Front strut braces,
High Flow Air mass meters and intakes, 13% Underdrive pulley, RPI Scoops. 12.5mm TMS Spacers.

I used this write up when I changed my plugs a few months ago. I couldnt have done the job without the detailed pictures and write up. Anyone who plans on doing this job needs to keep this handy.

Any reason we don't have a DIY subforum or sticky thread of all consolidated DIY posts? Would be a huge resource.
