The m5 passed the NCT last wednesday, our mechanic said it would fail there are number of minor things wrong with it. It ended up passing 2nd retest, it failed on indicator colour only haha. I have it booked in this Sat to correct the issues

- when breaking hard it veers slightly to the right: He's fairly confident that its either worn brake disc a wheel balancing issue
- hole in one of the exhausts - we intially thought it was crack, its fairly loud and even gives those boy racers a heart attack heh
- squeaking pedals - mainly clutch and brake
- wierd clicking sound(sounds a bit like metal rubbing on metal) when in 1st/reverse and turning full circle in either direction - hes not too sure whats causing this but he did mention it could be the crankshaft at worst or the power steering pump at the lower end of the scale.
- The belts at the front of the engine bay are quite loose, and will need to be replaced/tightened
- back left eletric window motor half working, usually stops working and slide down an inch just before a big journey....fecker

Welcome TSM. Glad you made it over alright from M5Board.

Great choice of car, the E34 M5. Hopefully you get the few bits sorted on it. Hopefully will see you at a meet soon.

Congrats, great to see someone bringing one of these into the country. The most under-valued car on the market IMO. Proper handbuilt ///M
