BMW E60 M5 Air Filter Replacement DIY

S85 engine 1 photo
The last naturally aspirated M5, the E60 model, had a monster engine under the bonnet. The S65 5-liter V10 was capable of over 8,000 RPM plus it developed 507 HP and 520 Nm (384 lb-ft) of torque.
That was and still is an impressive level of performance. However, since you're reading a BMW Blog we're sure you know all about it. We also assume some of our readers own such pieces of engineering and sometimes prefer to work on their cars themselves.

If that's the case today we're bringing you another useful DIY. Today's guide is about a rather usual operation: changing the air filters. Yes, 'filters' because the S85 engine has two of them.

The whole thing shouldn't take more than 30 minutes and all you need are the replacement filters (codes: 13727834715 for the driver's side one and 13727834714 for the passenger side) and a flathead screwdriver.

All you need to do now is follow the Euroaddiction DIY and in no time you'll be cruising the streets with a set of fresh filters. Good luck!
