    My M5 arrived but....

    After just 200km in the M5. The check engine light came on, transmisson failure as well as the bluetooth and CD changer error. This M5 is definitely a fragile car.

    Check out the pics in the website.

    Re: My M5 arrived but....

    Woah! Nice car!

    Re: My M5 arrived but....

    New cars are too damned packed full of unnecessary electronics and "features". Sorry to hear of your problems - hope they sort it out quickly for you...

    Re: My M5 arrived but....

    Congrats, nice color, hope your lil troubles won't last long

    Re: My M5 arrived but....

    great pics william, congrats on the ride~~

    hopefully the electronic gremlins will find exit from your vehicle...



    Re: My M5 arrived but....

    heh, congrats on the car, just saw the videos, u were shiftin at redline already. isnt there a break in period for the car?

    Re: My M5 arrived but....

    Wow, I just downloaded the movie of you revving the engine. Oh man, that sounds incredible!!!! Reminds me of the THREE Gallardos I heard all revving at a stoplight. Good times......

    So it only took 200km for the gremlins to take the engine, transmission AND stereo out That can't be to reassuring in a 200mph car..

    Hope they fix it soon though, must be a thrill to drive!

    Re: My M5 arrived but....

    hi william, congratulations on the new ride, hope your problems are smoothed out quickly!

    Re: My M5 arrived but....

    Beautiful car William, Congrats

    Re: My M5 arrived but....

    Wow, no "BMWs are ugly" posts yet - impressive

    That's a really beautiful car William, Silver Grey is my favourite color on the M5

    Did you get perforated seats and 4MA?

    Re: My M5 arrived but....

    Very cool car William! Congratulations! I have always thought the M5 was a great car.

    On your photo of the underside of the car, what is that cast aluminum piece between the exhaust pipes that has a "webbed" appearance? Is that part of the differential?

    On the electronics, I hope you have a good dealer. I went through the same thing for about a year with an X-5. The gremlins seemed to start going away after a year, but were never completely banished.

    Re: My M5 arrived but....

    Love that - what's the phone??

    Re: My M5 arrived but....

    Thanks guys. According to the dealer, It was just some software issues. They reset and reprogrammed the computer and everything seem to be working fine now. I guess there are trade offs when you want to have the car early.

    Apart from all the gremlins. The M5 is a thrill to drive.

    I have the M Multi-function seat. This is also my favorite option. It will scare your passanger the first time they sit in it.

    Yes, I think that's the differential oil cooling fins.

    Re: My M5 arrived but....
