    E39 M5 Rear Brake Discs

    Hi all, Considering the price I bought my Ferodo front discs for, I can only find non-branded rears that are 3-4 times the price! For some reason, Ferodo don't seem to do the rears?! Has anyone got any recommendations?

    It was just a weekend thing I think - 'insert this code for an additional discount' type of deal.

    Thanks @DepthHoar. I used the clutch number and found the flywheel kit (you pasted the number twice!), and managed to find the following prices: 624 3150 00 = £120.35 (including an additional 10% off) delivered from Mister-Auto 415 0110 10 = £308.70 delivered from Amazon Total spend = £429.05 and some beers for a friend, a Senior Tech at work, who used to work at a German car specialist

    I'm not trying to run it on a shoestring, but when something that I need could cost well over £1000, and used to cost £455, I just want to make sure I'm not being ripped off. I don't just have money to throw around - fuel isn't cheap in these things either

    Thanks for that! It’s good to know that the LUK kits are the OE parts anyway, as that is what I was eyeing up. It would appear that they were cheaper a few years ago too? I found a post from 2011 where someone says they found the clutch kit and flywheel for £500-600! Roughly, how much did all of that cost you?

    Thank ye oh faithful peasant! Now bow down before the M badge and fixeth my clutch
  11. Hi all, Apparently I posted this originally in the ‘peasant’ section, so apologies for the duplicate thread of you find the other one too My clutch pedal is sitting really high and I fear the clutch is on its last legs. It's a September 2000 (very early facelift) E39 M5 with 164k on the clock. I have a friend who's a mechanic and used to work for a German car specialist, so he knows his way around the car - I just need to know what to buy. Any recommendations for reasonably priced clutch kits and a flywheel? Fingers crossed it's just the clutch that needs doing and I can take the flywheel back for a refund! Thanks in advance

  13. Hi Stu, I'd be interested in the car if you'd reconsider selling it? No worries either way!

    Hey there! I'd be really interested in the car - I'm based in Milton Keynes but could make arrangements to come and pick it up - even before Christmas! Has the car had any work to it done recently? Or had any trouble with MOTs?
