It's not an m5. But a poor mans version of it.

I have had 3 bmw e39s. The first two being inline 6 528is. Than I got a 7 series e38 v8. Loved the m62 for its power and mpg highway. Traded it for this thing a few months ago.

115,000 miles

So far, I have done the oil pan gaskets, upper and lower timing gaskets, valve cover gaskets, the timing chain guides were in great condition ironically. Also did the transmission mounts, fluid service, rear diff service.

Still looking to do all ignition coils, spark plugs, and rear main seal & the shift selector rod because after I did the transmission mounts I noticed my gear shifter vibrating in 1st second and Reverse. Flex guibo rubbing - turned it to be the selector rod bent from previous slack in destroyed mounts. Now with the new fit on new mounts it rubs. - sheesh.

Just got the paint corrected yesterday with a ceramic coating.

Anyone other ones out there ?
