    Mechanical sympathy and a generous wallet is the key.

    I would be stoked If my m5 got 17.5 L/100 but It doesnt use anywhere near that much oil.

    Questions for seller: 1. When you stopped was there 6 litres of oil on the road behind you? How far behind you? 2. Does "on road costs included" mean "drive away"? Might be worth the 10k! Question for you all: Why, in today's day and age with modern electronics etc, doesn't a low oil pressure warning force the car into limp mode, instantly start reducing available power and force the rev limit (eventually) down to 0. Would be trivial to implement in software.

    Cheers for the legitimate banter on here. Seemingly endless bunch of knobs on TM.

    Today, with the excellent help from Kerry of Mosen Euro Parts (Hamilton) we did the RMS, flywheel, clutch, gearbox oil, driveshaft coupling, shifter parts, and O2 sensors on my M5, plus a bit of cleaning etc as we went along. Six hours in total, pretty straight forward with all the right tools including a hoist and trans jack. The exhaust took a bit of mucking around to get off and on, one gearbox mounting bolt had rounded off and we had to get "creative" but all in all a great day - fricken cold though...
