    E60 M5 with a big scare

    I leave my E61 M5 parked up for weeks at a time, most recently was 7 weeks and I have it plugged in with a CTEK trickle charger, never had a problem.

    Low windscreen washer pressure.

    Yes just done the same with mine, hardly any pressure on the jets and I was stuck with no washers whilst in Germany. I took the NSF wheel off and unscrewed the arch liner to expose the washer bottle with the pumps, pulled out the pumps and they were blocked in the filters. It worked a treat afterwards. Mine is an E61 M5 so hopefully in the same place.

    Castrol Edge 5w30 4L £26 delivered

    Shell supply BMW with oil now. Castrol and BMW fell out for some reason, hence Shell supplying the oil.

    E61 Boot Tub

    I'm looking at the plastic boot tub for my E61 which has the auto tailgate. Does anyone have a genuine BMW one with auto tailgate ? I can get one but the part number comes back as 'non auto tailgate fitment' and I was wondering if it's a problem, I have the genuine boot mat which again came back as non auto tailgate but works a treat.

    Short break ideas....

    I've done Monterux in Switzerland on a drive by and stayed at the Fairmont on the front, drank ridiculously in 'Funky Claude's Bar' Can't remember much apart from being told Freddie Mercury was known to frequent there regularly. Stunning views though

    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Fitted a new clutch and flywheel to the M5. Never had a problem with it and I did it as I had the parts sat on the shelf for the last 18months and I decided at 57k to replace it. I must say it's a different car, highly impressed with the difference.

    Choosing an E60 M5

    Warranty on a 60k mile car will be 3k plus.

    M5 or dreamer?

    There's a taxi in Stoke that's an M5 replica, looks good to the eye but it's a 525d with starship mileage. Imagine the disappointment when you get in and he floors it and chucks out black soot behind them.

    e61 M5

    How much roughly is the H&S set up ? Ive got the BTB systems on the M3 & 325 and if I did venture into replacing the rear boxes then BTB would be considered.

    How does it sound ? Is it worth the upgrade ?

    Yes it should do. Mine has the auto tailgate and it lifts upon opening and slides down down when the tailgate closes.
