Delivery & Inspection - Garage Find V8 BMW E39 M5 - Project Skövde: Part 2

This legendary E39 M5 has been sitting in a garage unused in Sweden for 9 years. In this episode, it's being delivered to my shop where we take a closer look at it and learn what it will take to bring it back to condition it deserves to be in.

    The thigs of BMW classics that give sadness. : likes to leak : likes to catch fire : likes to explode : hard to find specific parts and or for a reasonable price : at BMW plastic is more expensive than gold But yet we love them.

    Streton, why is the cost of maintenance cheaper in Europe, compared to the U.S., where repairing BMWs can be quite expensive. And where do you search for BMWs in Europe?

    Now you're not going to be able to drain all the oil out because you covered the slot with the helicoil. I would have used an insert and or bought another oil pan.

      You do realize what you said is not correct and irrelevant? The oil still goes through the threads of the helicoil and you normally can't drain everything from the pan unless you let it drain for 2 days. Whatever stays is negligible, you have oil all over the engine that doesn't drain. I really don't understand your comment.

    Seems like it would have just been cheaper and easier to grab a sump bolt one size up and just use it with the fresh cut threads instead of helicoiling it? I had a motorbike once with a stripped drain plug and went that route.

    I would hold off on cutting a slot in the helicoil that you installed, even with the thread locker the helicoil will probably break up if you cut it. You stand a better chance with a Time-Sert but its still not ideal. It may be best to just put up with an incomplete oil drain.

    Your comment of your current m5 being trouble free considering you had it for 3 years, 30k kms.. is a bit funny. I’d like to see you daily drive that thing - summer/winter etc and see how trouble free it is. I’m a bmw guy myself, great cars, wicked drive machines however the $/km cost to run these is higher than other cars

      What's funny there? I've been daily driving it for 2 and a half years, summer and winter, it was my only car before I got the E46. I had 2 other E39 M5s before this one and also daily drove them for a year and a half. I stopped using this one in winter cause I don't want to expose it to salt anymore.

    Sreten, I'm a huge TIME-SERT fan, too, after my E46 front control arm issue. One of the bolt holes was stripped on the lollipop body. I was worried because it's steel not aluminum. But I did a lot of research and called the TIME-SERT folks who were super helpful. I'm adding the link to my walkthrough on the successful repair on E46Fanatics for you in case you ever have the same issue. Not that you wouldn't figure it out, but it might save you some time!

    Good luck with the DSC/ABS computer... Part is no longer available from BOSCH, at least not for now... Currently replaced with a reman from Ebay... works for now, but bought an "original" meaning expensive $1400 from BMW. Just don't trust the reman from ebay and 1, 2-10 years from now when it craps again I would like to have one available. Parts are disappearing for these cars. Same deal with headlights. Bought one of the last RH from Hella new units. All others available are original BMW. I think BMW sniffed an opportunity and is making aftermarket providers no longer produce parts at a reasonable price- meaning not selling them to us but is trying to upsell enthusiasts expensive parts that are literally the same.

    I know you prefer OEM most of the time, but you really should consider an electic radiator fan. Best thing I ever did on my old E39 540i, and it wasn't close. Improves power(substantially), fuel mileage, and sound, while also elminating the possibility of the fan grenading. There are no negatives unless you are planning for an originality inspection.
