    Did you have a crankshaft position sensor signal code ?!?!? I’m having one on my BMW and I’m pretty sure is the same reason because of the fly wheel

    when do you ever pull down? pull up and push down. Both you and Doug are talking and driving a car you know very little about. I have been daily driving a V10 M6 for years now!.. I don't know a more reliable V10 ...bunch of trash talking online. This car takes a study..

    MR STICKS 21 day ago

    It actually does make sense to shift up by going down and shifting down by going up. Almost every straight cut gear setup is like that and almost every European car is like that.

  • Valter
    Valter 21 day ago

    up is down and down is up? if you bush the break holding the gear lever your hand will automaticly pull forward (downshifting) and pushing the gas will make you automaticly upshift. That is really not so hard to understand -,-

  • Andrew Lee

    That is the proper way of shifting sequential. Pull down for up-shifts and push up for down. Just like the Rally cars and other professional cars. Mazda does this the right way. Everyone else gets it backwards. :)

      Same here. I love the way bmw's look but alot of their problems could have been completely avoided.

    SMG is different than a manual and not just minus a clutch pedal. It’s sequential, as the name says. Motorcycle and many race transmissions are sequential, but controlled manually not by computer. An H pattern manual or a double clutch select gears differently. It’s one of the reasons it’s been made obsolete.

    So glad BMW made the shift lever work the right way, despite what you think. Also, NEVER put it in D mode for automatic changing. I'm certain having that function was an argument between the engineers and sales people, which the dumb sales people won. Put it in manual S6 and let it rev a little between pulling on the levers (not so hard they break - never heard of that before!). It's a special car and doesn't like to be driven like a Toyota. Understand what it is and what it's capable of and you'll realize it's one of the most stunning cars ever built.

    Owning the E60 M5 (2006) as a weekend car for almost a year now. Amazing to drive. I only have 1 big issue I can’t figure out. Hope any of you can help. There’s a exhaust fume smell in the car (no gas smell, no oil smell). I’ve had the car go to a specialized garage AND to a BMW dealership, they both couldn’t find anything. It comes from the engine bay through the AC vents, but also when rolling the windows or sunroof down. It’s really strong and gives me a headache. Somehow it’s also a strong smell when opening the booth. However, when driving, it does come from the front. Any ideas?

    Sir, you did it the wrong way.
    You have to turn off the DSC, hit the accelerator pedal and after a second also push the break
    Thats the only way to do a burnout with the SMG

    The transmission isn't installed backwards. That's how are installed in racecars, a lot of street cars mimicked it the wrong way.

  • davidasddd
    davidasddd Month ago

    That’s the proper way to shift up the transmission. Going up is downshifting going down is upshifting. Think about it when you slam on the brakes you move forward... acceleration moves you backwards. Same thing with the shifter.

    Interesting! I never let anybody but me drive any car I have had if they can't qualify their ability. I have had 9 mechanics ask me why on various cars I knew better then the computer system what was going on in various situations It's easy. I have a ton of car engineers and computer people in my family. My father owned high end repair businesses.

    When I was thinking of buying one, I contacted a local BMW "dealership workshop" by email asking if I could get a price list of some of the most repairs, like clutch, drive shaft shit like that. They didn't reply. Apparently they don't want anything to do with the E60 M5 and Think that if you buy one, you're entitled to burn in the hell you set on fire yourself. Says a lot.

    do you hear what you say ,it seemed like you never drove a car or is it your first car ,that´s the only bmw that will increase the price in the future, considered by several car critics the best bmw ever, not me i prefer the 1975´s 2002 not the tii ,just the plain and simple quadruple carburetor ,regards

  • Rui Cameira
    Rui Cameira Month ago

    it´s funny when you do a burn out ,that you can see the rubber left on the road, and look admired when the car informs you that the clutch is overheated,unreliable are the words that come out of your mouth, an M5 it´s one of the best bmw´s ever, in 93 i owned one and still today ,only oil changes breaks pads and tires, and a car like that with automatic transmition it should be considered a crime, and the car was built to be driven not to achieve high-rotations stoped , tires do cost money but there´s a concept that you don´t understand, everything you say is wrong about the car,regards
