You could replace the center muffler with an X pipe, and replace factory muffler with an aftermarket (Magnaflow has heavy burble sound). keep rest of stock piping if you just want sound.

Interesting comparison, OP.



E60's in general are way out of date, lol! Oh well - my e60 with 118K mi still looks good, interior / exterior in good shape, and drives even better :)

I know you just had it done last year, but I'd look into the oil filter housing gasket - seems most likely, or perhaps it's old coolant collected/sprayed there from last year?

535i is the best E60 choice. The M/N62 is not exactly the picture of reliability either - coolant pipe, etc. E60 M5 is infamous for having high-dollar items fail frequently.

ha, don't bother with a 550 (or 545i). If you want power, you need a 535i, they're almost as fast as the 550i stock - and add JB4/MHD, you will be around 400+ whp and smoking 550i's.

That sucks about the belt and it getting sucked into the crank seal - happens a lot.

This is not a normal thing for springs to fail on BMW's, so makes me think you have a special case. I see it's completely rusted ... You're in Nova Scotia - maybe your area is just extremely harsh...

A few years ago I found a good how-to on getting INPA set up. Wasn't perfect, most of the links were broken, but I'm sure it's still out there if you look hard enough for "INPA BMW install", etc.

don't rule out that it was a BS excuse from BMW, because they forgot to do something before handing the car back to you the first time.
