    ttrw2's 2001 Le Mans Blue M5

    Just read the thread from 2012 to date and wow some real insight into ownership of these amazing cars. Mine is the same colour but looking a tad tired now so going in for a detail soon.

    BMW M5 30 Jahre Exhaust

    Afternoon Guys, Just purchased a 30 Jahre M5 and wanted to know how to work out if I have a M Performance Exhaust please? Checked the VIN decoder websites but none list it as a optional extra for my car. However the previous owner sent me the attached image which shows a Akrapovic exhaust. I have the carbon tips but just wondering if anyone can shed some light on the actual exhaust please? Is the exhaust the £7k plus option extra or did these come as standard on the 30 Jahre? Thanks

    Anyone Know this M5 Touring

    Sorry copied the link and forgot to paste
  9. Hi Just been browsing looking for a M5 Touring and came across the car at Arun Jaguar. Does anyone know this car? There is a mileage discrepancy in relation to km and miles being mixed up, has anyone else ever experienced this?

    Wet Floor Back Foot well

    Thanks Dan, would never have known what to look for without the links. Makes it seem less daunting now. I have also put a call into Phil Crouch as the car needs a service and he seemed very well clued up about the various leaks etc.

    Detailer Recommendations

    Hi Just looking to see if there are any recommended places for detailing that anyone can recommend either in Birmingham, Leicester or Somerset. Ideally looking for one firm to details a couple of cars back to back as its about time I took the upkeep seriously

    Wet Floor Back Foot well

    I do have a sunroof, albeit metal sunroof, not glass. Is removal of the door card easy? Will I need to order new clips beforehand? Also is replacing the vapour barriers easy enough to do myself? Or is it better off left to a garage?

    Wet Floor Back Foot well

    I am having same issue with water ingress in the rear footwell behind the drivers seat but also some drips through the top of the A pillar. Been advised by my local Indy it could be all sorts and worse case roof lining needs to be removed!!! does this sound right? He mentioned windscreen coming out etc. Will I need new roof lining once he pulls it off? Any advise would be much appreciated.... I am midlands and south-west based so if anyone knows of a indy that can do the work and has previous experience please let me know. Thanks
