BMW has issued a delivery stop order on all 2013 M5 and M6 (coupe and convertible). The issue stems from a potential problem with the engine oil pump on certain S63Tu engine equipped cars. Vehicles equipped with an affected pump could experience a sudden loss of oil pressure which will result in engine damage.

BMW is recommending current M5 and M6 owners not drive the vehicle. Stay tuned for updates.

BMW M cars may have staked their reputation on their handling and overall performance package, but with the forced induction trend of the latest M models, they’ve become quite the straight-line monsters.

The 2013 F10 M5 with its S63Tu engine is rated at 560hp from the factory, but dynos have confirmed that this is a significantly underrated power figure. This has now also been borne out at the track.

The 2013 F10 M5 with its 4.4L V8 S63Tu turbo engine has previously been shown to be underrated from the factory, which is BMW’s habit with its official quote power figures.

The latest results showing this come from iND who have just begun performance testing on their F10 M5. The result was 527 RWHP (rear wheel horsepower) on a totally stock F10 M5 running on pump gas and dyno’d on a dynojet. This represents just a 6% drivetrain loss.

The M5′s S63tu V8 runs a higher … CONTINUED

iND has started on its first F10 M5 portfolio project car, for their client, Tom. Per iND:

Perhaps the effect will wear off in time, but for now seeing an F10 M5 in the flesh feels like peering into a toy store. For our client Tom, who has already brought several of his cars to us for some special touches, even a stock twin-turbo super sedan cannot be left untouched. Tom has been an ardent BMW enthusiast since medical school, jumping right into the fray with … CONTINUED
