LOL I think you see too many lowered E39s here. Stock sport is a lot higher. That's about a 2" drop from stock sport. I refuse to go black mouldings. Too M5 looking. :D

Going off of the top of my head, Dex4 should be safe.

If you ask me though, the most simple Dex3 fluid is usually best. I don't want additives designed for transmissions in my PS pump. Just go for...

In 1999 I was 10 years old.

My dad's boss just put down $80k large for an 2000 M5. God that was a beautiful machine in 1999 and still is timeless today.

Hey Mike, I went to the University of Houston too! I've now graduated, but I used to only park my car the parking garages and in corners.

It takes effort to keep a car well maintained in Houston.

Bumping an old thread.

Reading through this thread, I'm still confused at what exactly the part numbers are to the fasteners for the bottom part of the M fender liners.

Anyone?

What are you spinning at 80 mph? My stock diff yields 3000 rpms in 5th gear at 80. That's already a bit high for me since I come from V8s.

Also, 1st gear is probably super short now.

The E60 M5 and my E39

I like to rev-match all my downshifts. I always use my clutch, but I like to shift in a way that doesn't require the use of a clutch.

A good manual driver is one who can minimize clutch wear.
