    I am even more suprised that this thread hasnt been put up already esp since earliest E60s are now 7 years old and the F10 has already arrived. Moderators pls have a sticky for this topic pls.Anyway, anyone care to share their maintenance experience here for the benefit of all forumers. Thxs

    Changed my oil separator for RM800.00. Symthom being black smoke belching out from the exhaust. Luckily its not the valve seal otherwise would be more costly and time consuming to repair.

    Changed my engine oil and labour and diagnostic costs RM60.00. Brought my own oil and filter. Not too happy with the mechanic as although he charges for computer diagnostic, he never really goes through result of the diagnostic checking with me. Further despite many reminders to them not to overfill, they still commit the heinous sin. After driving back and letting the car cool down for a few hours, confirmed they have overfilled when I checked the dipstick later. Have to drive back and let them suck the excess out. Should have asked them to compensate me with one litre of oil. I guess they would never have the chance to overfill my car in the future. :mad:

    First service done under my ownership.

    Can't remember the full details but changed Total Full-Synth approx RM400 (including oil filter)
    Full diagnostics and upgraded DME, EGS and CCC software approx RM350

    Car feels very responsive now.... and FC also improved.

    Depends on what version you are at before the upgrade. In my case, I was 3 versions behind the latest. That took 2 hours. Some cars had taken more than half a day as they are 6-7 versions behind.
