BMW M5, M6 Rod Bearings

For BMW M5 and M6 Guys

Up until 2011 BMW has been using rod bearings with copper and lead material. These bearings are subject to premature wear. This in some events lead to catastrophic engine failures.

As a preventative measure we offer S85 V10 M5 and M6s rod bearing replacement service packages.
