I Bought & Fixed the Cheapest V10 BMW E60 M5 6-speed In The World - Project Raleigh: Part 1

Opublikowany 8 lip 2020
Naturally aspirated V10 paired with a manual gearbox - does it get any better? Yes, if your garage is 5 minutes away from derestricted Autobahn. I bought the most "reliable" BMW and started fixing on it, it'll be a while before this astonishing car is ready to hit the Autobahn as it needs to pass German inspection first but follow along as I throw money at it and get it back into the shape it deserves to be.

  • Looks like you got really lucky!!

  • I'm not even a BMW guy but I'm hooked on these vids

  • When it’s part 2 coming out?????

  • I have been sending them off I’m gonna start doing them myself. Thanks guys awesome video

  • I’m from NC and I believe that’s my uncle’s car. Same color and was nasty af. The tag number the first 3 digits are the same. It has to be his. He was on the road a lot. I advised him not to buy it and get a 528. He’s a old man and drove like it.

  • Found your channel by chance, been binge watching your content for 2 days now! Just Subscribed!!.

  • I thought you would put Meisterschaft Stage 2 exhaust on this beast, than you talked bout TUV ... :(((

  • nice job man

  • Great video, even though I wouldn't tackle the ABS pump. Please post more vids on maybe the most common problem for that E60 M5, the Traction Control and reduced power issues.

  • When will be 2nd part of this project?

  • As others...first time viewer and subscribed straightaway! I loved every second of this video. I've also bought so many BMWs over the years 'unseen'..and it's always a surprise when they turn up. www.bmwclassics.co.uk

  • Where is Part 2?

    • @M539 Restorations ooh too bad. Wanted to see how you fix up that M5. Never the less I'll wait for the part 2 when it comes out :)

    • Not even close to being ready sadly.

  • if the guy who sold it saw this video, he must feel like an absolute knob

  • Wha diagnostic software were you using?

  • Driver was complimenting your car, not the opposite

    • He wasn't, someone on the way asked to buy it is what he said. Also, that the condition is bad.

  • 9:43 Lol 😆 🤣

  • plthrow.info/my/wideo/mayKlnja18mcoWg.html

  • And yet we never saw part 2 😕

  • Part 2 plz

  • German Car Needs a German mechanic the previews owner was stopped lol

  • WHERE IS PART 2

  • These V10s seem to be awfully unreliable

  • I love your videos. I'm a bmw fan myself. Where are you originally from?

  • This makes me wanna buy a Ford Focus and import it to America.

    • I understand the gearbox predicament but still seams weird. Does that mean you need to import a clutch?

  • Hallo my friend, I love your vidjeos, but there's a reason why wires are NOT soldered inside fuel tanks (in the 850i vidjeo) or in ABS pumps man.

  • Oh that car sounds beautiful

  • Looks solid!

  • Those white bags cathes moist under transport on the seven seas.

  • Rebuilding the most unreliable BMW ever built seems like buying a boat.

  • Dude i love your videos im gonna watch all of them!!! Make more vids 💪💪

  • Part 2 !!! Part 2 !!! Part 2 !!!! We need our drugs, man !!! Part 2 , please !!!

    • Take a breath please. I already explained several times that part 2 won't be any time soon.

  • Those brushes was already in good working order 🤣 don’t show off mate🤣🤣 do not offesns, i like what you doing cause i am an engineer since i was 4 ☺️

  • Wo ist die Fortsetzung?

  • i never realized that your german is so "poor". Where are you from?

  • Iv had my e60 m5 for 7 years and love it, never had any issues with it, just now going to have the rod bearings done

  • M539 guy, I can see you buy a lot of cars which have the typical faults and yet you fix them everytime. Does it actually take you quite long to fix them? I.e. when you have a V10 which has warning lights everywhere is it actually THAT expensive for you to fix it time and labour wise? Like, you obviously cut a lot of material out of your videos but it always seems that you buy these fairly wrecked cars, do a few things here and there and suddenly they seem to be in sound mechanical condition again and look like new. Like the mere fact that you shipped it across to europe suggests the americans have just given up on it.

  • Yoaaaah!

  • After...20mins of ‘oh err urmm,Christ,Jesus ...that looks like alot of work,parts,price,fear...price’ Still WANT one!

  • It was misfiring and lumpy no service history and the interior was filthy sooo I BOUGHT IT 😂😂😂👌🏼

  • For such a nice vehicle it certainly would be worth to do a nice paint blend job between front & rear doors.

  • Great video ;,-) good luck with the car.

  • Interesting video and i like the way this guy works.

  • hello where did u buy the car from ?

  • Had same one I bought for 4k bearings went in 10k miles

  • How much did it cost to ship it to you?

  • I want this car so bad. It's very tempting. If I get a manual + make sure the rod bearings are ok, is there really much you have to worry about?

  • Good job guys bravo

  • This man is Serb!

  • 10:58 me buying to buy a car 😂

  • Mate you’re awesome 😎 This thing sounds nice

  • Part 2 ?

  • Yooo I live like 10 mins out of Raleigh. I constantly drive down that road it was picked up on in N.C.

  • Got my eye on one of these too! Thanks for showing how to fix your issues and hope I can use them as well!

  • When is the next video??

  • The front left has been resprayed.

    • @M539 Restorations you did mention it later in the video ,i am still in the process of watching ! 60% watched.hey i also wanted to know u bought a rebuilt kit for the ABS from UK, would it not normally be cheaper in germany or available there?

    • Man, if I only had such eagle eyes, maybe I would've mentioned it in the video.

  • Fixing BMW is so expensive, complicated and continoues that owners of it can only just watch wideo on youtube to check how fixed car looks like and how it is driving.

  • There's one with big end bearing issue on another channel, Big end jornals are shot. Any advice for Samcrac?

  • 🤔manual wow 😍😎

  • V 10 is amazing

  • Awwwww E39 best car bmw ever made 😋 👌 😍, hoovie would have been very proud you bought this hoopty

  • nowhere close to looking as good as the e39 M5 BMW really messed up with these no models 🤦‍♂️

  • Just for fun you should have striven that thing straight to the Tooth inspection.

  • part2????

  • How difficult and expensive is to get a car from the US in Germany?

  • I have never owned a BMW, I am always worried about expensive repairs or overcharging mechanics. Of course, if I lived next to you, it would be a different story!.

  • Imagine importing BMW to Germany....I can't even explain 😂

  • i have to say , expert , manuel gear ,v10 , nice car ,jealous haha

  • part 2?????

  • Hi mate, i enjoyed watching your video. Good work. Just a quick advice incase you don’t know. With BMW’s make sure to always keep the fuel tank at least half full. They run a lot better but if you can’t make sure it doesn’t go under a quarter tank at any time. Look forward to viewing your other videos ✌🏼

  • I WAS AMAZED BY YOUR VIDEOS!LOOKING FORWARD FOR E60 M5 PART 2

  • Dude speaks better English than most native English speakers. Sheesh. The range of his vocabulary for a German is out of this world

  • Without all those defects it wouldn't look like the machine it is 👌🏻💪🏼

  • Awesome! Best purchase ever.

  • I really love this car

  • I have 2 e60 i love these bro

  • We need a Nordschleife lap with this!

  • Should have sent it to Detail Geek before importing!

  • You saved this car! Congrats for that!

  • Wait ! A German in Germany brought a bmw from the us ?

  • Wicked rebuild! Where's Part 2 though?!

  • Nice E60 M5, with potential to be a real beast again. I think you meant broken side indicator lense at 09:05 it's not a side Mirror..

  • man your work is so awsome

  • I’m an ex bmw technician, I totally see you not taking those intake plenum chambers off because they’re a total NIGHTMARE

  • In USA one coil pack is $80-90 so there you go. $ 800 for 10 of them. At the dealership they change all of them at once together with spark plugs. BMW is known to blow coil packs every week.

  • Always remember to check your oil 🛢 before you go driving and revving the engine.

  • I'll stick with my honda

  • Great rebuild, when will the next episode drop?

  • Front door has a a different shade of silver. Resprayed?

  • Do you think it may have been a flood damaged car? ABS pump had signs of water in, those 2 big silica gel packs for soaking up moisture? Maybe that side corner had gotten wet? I’ll keep,watching, and see how you progress.....anyone mentioned bottom end bearing shells yet, isn’t that a think on these v10’s? EDIT, I can see you mention bearings now....

    • @M539 Restorations yep, thanks for the reply, what a cool project though. Are you able to to get a louder exhaust system in Germany with the TUV? It'd sound epic! 😉👍

    • No, there are absolutely no signs of that plus it would've been totaled 100% if that happened. Gel packs were put by the shipping company, water in ABS is not uncommon, it sits low and if the fender liner was off or damaged at some point (I can see it was messed with before) that'll do it.

  • Waiting for par2

  • This car was surely used in a Cannonball run

  • Don't keep it or you are going to spend all the money that you made on youtube on that car.

  • Hi Do you want to sell this car?

  • The price of 1 million pounds of turkey this car

  • I love your videos. I am also a software consultant programmer. I refurbish everything in cars & repair anything. I think we do it, in part, to balance the rather hard strain on the brain pre-OOP making everything easier. I no longer fear of Porsche IMS failure... 'Out here in the fields..'

  • What a bit of a crap place to put an abs pump.

  • Will you be able to register this 13 year old car in Germany and get plates? There is "no older 8 years" in possesion right?

  • 32:26

  • You need one of these for that hood: www.amazon.de/-/en/CTA-Tools-5360-Lift-Support-Clamp/dp/B00N3YSFSO/

  • hallo. can you please tell me how did you buy this car? and how did you transporte it in Germani ? :) i want to buy a corvette from USA...and i don t know how...and who to trust...thanks a lot :)
