The rear main seal and clutch are great things to do at this point. During dealer fix, spark plug coils were damaged. How the team got there, though, is a little mystifying. It gets hotter and hotter, and the only way to cool the compartment is to manuall choose Max Air. But there is still nothing to rival the sense of involvement that goes with shifting for yourself, and the M5's six-speed does an excellent job of keeping the 4.
Instant torque and all-wheel drive conspire to hammer this big car to 60 mph in 4. Even the audio system on that car was phenomenal and I'm an audiophile! Everything is very expensive to maintain in those cars. I will in the other hand be doing some more research on this vanos situation hahahaha CodyT answered 3 years ago Wow, I'm impressed that you guys can find 06 M5's and M6's with such low miles on them! The E55 is unchanged from '01; the M5 differs only in that it received standard automatic headlight controls, a Universal Transceiver, and a new color choice for '02. Yes Review Date: 30th May, 2009.

After a couple of minutes, fan would come back on, after 30 seconds or so, slowly fall to shutting off. Timing chain tensioner- yes, do the easy one that you can do in 15 minutes.
Significant distinctions on that front, for sure, but significant divisions within the test crew on its importance. Michael answered 6 years ago The E60 M5 vs. The car I purchased was in superior condition and accurately represented by the owner. People think that the more often you change your oil, the better off you are. I have done all of the aforementioned sensors in my car at some point during my ownership. Mychael answered 3 years ago Congrats on the car! I would say in that case, the engine wasnt well taken care of and services werent done when needed.
I'm going to have to say this is one of the best looking cars on the block. This has been a big concern for many owners. The force of the pistons slamming into the crankshaft with the play can easily destroy score the crankshaft, at which point, the engine needs to come out and be opened up to remove and replace the crankshaft if it indeed cannot be repaired by machining. For that matter, the window stickers of our test group aren't for the faint of pocket. While the outside of the car looks great with the body styling, performance rims, and dual exhaust its a shame to say i regret buying this car. It's an engineering marvel if you are into that kind of stuff like me. Only complaint I would have would be maintenance costs are pretty high, expect 2grand or more a year if you want to keep it in good shape.

I haven't researched the difference yet. Otherwise, the kid's college fund just went the way of the dodo. I know rod bearings seems to be high on the list, and Im familiar with chain guides. And buy a newer one! You can source well priced used S85 engines versus buying new lol. So far I am really satisfied with the vehicle.

Are they worse, better, or the same as 540i cars? I also replaced the flex disc Gibo that goes between the driveshaft and the differential. If you have some basic automotive experience, and a decent set of sockets, you can replace these yourself. This by far is the best car I ever owned!! My suggestion is to get a 2007 and up. The first thing to go wrong with it was the front seats.

At 192,000 miles, all of my timing system was original, with the exception of the primary tensioner, which I did 5 years ago at about 178,000 miles. The worst sounding engines are the earliest ones.

The affected vehicles are equipped with a dual-stage driver frontal air bag that may be susceptible to moisture intrusion which, over time, could cause the inflator to rupture. The chain is guided around the front of the engine by a series of plastic timing chain guides.
