    Doh

    That's a course of treatment, not a prognosis. Long day.

    Prognosis: Negative.

    At first I was wondering what that big chassis brace was doing exactly.

    Then I realized it was an epic work light. Nice.

    I was driving the car around a week or so ago. Daily'ing the car even, because the weather was nice.

    Next thing I know, I have no speed on the dash, and a check engine light. I do a quick search and when the CEL comes on and no vehicle speed is displayed, the issue is the VSS. I call a local parts store and they can get me a new one for 45 in the morning. I know when I pull the VSS out, I'll lose some fluid, so I need to do a fluid swap anyways. Guess what, local parts store has the ZF recommended fluid in stock. Castrol TWS in a 10w60, which is the same as the M5 spec is. 2.2 quarts is spec, and after futzing with a slightly ground down drain plug, we get the old and nasty fluid out, and pump in new clean fluid.

    Quick test drive, and the VSS is working, I have visual readout on my speedometer, and the transmission is SOOOOOO nice now. It's happy. I'm likely still going to need to replace the syncros at some point. But it shifts nicer now. That alone makes me happy to have spent 100$.

    I don't have any photos, because I just wanted to get this car fixed.

    Next up, fix the cruise control, and the CEL issue, which may require an ECM rebuild (250$)

    Onward and upward.
