M5 F10


First Glance

A customer brought in this BMW M5 F10 into AB Autos. It required an engine rebuild.


When we looked under the hood and gave an initial inspection  we discovered that the timing belt was extremely worn and tired which led to a few other complications like stretched ring binders and missing flue bushing cavities.


A replacement timing chain was installed which fixed the main issue. We then compacted the ring bindings and flattened the bushes out with original OEM BMW parts.


  • Worn timing belt
  • Stretched ring binders

A rare iridescent BMW came in for a full engine rebuild after a day at the race track left it in need of some tlc. 

A family saloon with an unreliable engine came in so the owner had peace of mind when driving to the Alps. 

This BMW has been on the cover of BMW car magazine 3 times. The engine now boasts customisations that rival its paint job.
