Haham thought it would make a funny joke.

My M5 hasn't had anything other than rear tire swap side to side due to ridiculous camber wear. I also did my rear rotors/pads.

My wive's on the other hand, new clutch, RMS, front thrust arms, rear sway bar links, exhaust mounts, oil change, hood latch adjustment, thermostat,...i think that was about it...

She drives harder than you eh? LOL!!! Kidding

My rears wear pretty flat, but my suspension is completely stock. I also need two new exhaust mounts (the ones at the tranny, I assume the same ones she had replaced?) I did the crossover mount bushings about 6 months ago (the funky rubber ones at the exhaust cross-over/flat spot).

I've got a "thunk" under braking in the front, feels like it is at my feet, so I'm assuming I've got a bushing or something that's got some play in it up front still. That'll be the next item to get fixed

Rad flush.... The outside! It started to overheat at tmp last year, but it's fine otherwise, even when super hot out... I read a thread about track day overheating and apparently our cars tend to trap dirt in between the rad and ca condenser. No kidding! It left a huge pile of sand on the ground where I blasted it with a hose!

Went to tmp again last week and its fine...yay!

Since last fall, the wagon got:

Painted intake manifold
Front coilovers finally installed
Cross drilled front rotors
Machined rear rotors
Finished bleeding the brakes
Replaced rear tires
Downgraded spacers to 15mm and rolled the fenders
Replaced full sunroof assembly

Still debating about navi and DSP install, and new thermostat is waiting to go in...running a bit on the cool side right now.

Let me help you with the Navi part .... the original BMW system has a cool factor, but a modern Garmin portable works way better.

- I've got a 2008 database and a lot of things are missing, even entire neighborhoods that are 40+ years old!
- The eta function is based on current speed only so it can change by hours on the same trip.
- The display is top view or instructions only - none of the modern 3D stuff

I like DSP sound and I like the clean factory look. However, an aftermarket double din Nav/Bluetooth unit is probably a better choice.

You prolly knew all this already.... Function ....Or factory look...
