Hey everyone, I'm a new member here on this forum. I've been on other forums but not quite as into BMW's as this one. I just turned 21, and bought myself an E39 M5 (2001) from a place in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I'm looking at doing a few things to it and wanted input before I did them as I'm fairly new to BMW scene. Anyways here is a link to my thread of my BMW in another site with tons of pictures:
I want to do a clutch change and am not sure of all the parts that should be changed while the transmission is out of the car.

Welcome, looks like Cartbon black?
Just as hard to maintain that paint as jet black.

If you have any questions feel free to post them here, there are a couple of us M5 owners that can try answer some but M5board is definitely the place to be.

Be careful, Im 26, I've had m5's since your age and it is easy to get into a sticky situationw ith these very powerful and big cars. Take your time to learn how the car performs before pushing the DSC button.

To answer your question, I had the clutch done on my jet black M5 and I did a flywheel resurface, new clutch kit with all of the little bearrings etc that come in the kit and rear main seal. While everything else was out, I decided to throw in an e60 545i SSK, night and day difference. Both of my M5's have the SSK and it is perfect compromise of great feel and easy driving.

Hope that helps

Congrats on the purchase! They are a pile of fun. I came from the land of 5.0L Mustangs, so the E39 M5 is very well composed and far more predictable going sideways than what I was used to driving.

I had mine down your way last year when I was visiting my sisters. One lives in Bedford, the other just outside of Halifax.
