The Lemfoerder thrust arm bushings failed on my M5 in less than a year. Couldn't believe it. I went back with OEM and won't use them again.

About once a year, I use low pressure spray on my M5 to get to the areas I can't manually. Like anything, if you keep it clean, maintaining that condition is not that difficult.
