All the best for 2018 to all fans and youngtimer enthusiasts :).
I found out three weeks ago that my oil separator hoses were dead. The hose has to be firm and if pressed, it has to return to its previous shape immediately. Which was not happenning with the originals. The parts arrived two weeks ago, so we went for the job.
Last weekend the M5 attended a small E39 Community meetup in Slovakia. We met a mechanic with another M5 and of course, we went through some checks and maintenance discussion. As a result, I got a note that my oil separator hoses are dead. Meaning – too soft, squishy, instead of being durable and firm. This, of course, resulted into a package of new parts. And because changing the hoses is not enough, I have also bought new oil separators and their housing.
Beside that, my kids have been so much playing with rear cup holders, that I had to buy a new ones. Mind you, the holder design and durability is ridiculous, all supported by 18 years of age. I hope the new pieces will have much better resistance to kids and their active hands.
So, the plan for upcoming weekend is clear. Garage playtime!

This blog is dedicated to my E39 BMW M5, which I love and meticulously care about. Happy to share all pros and cons of the ownership. I’m not an expert or mechanic.
