Got mine today. My wife saw the box and thought it was a Christmas present I got for her. When I got home she asked "is that my Christmas present? is it jewelry?" I handed her the tool and said "Merry Christmas".

Very nice piece BTW. Can't wait to use it.

Now that this tool is out, would someone like to update the original DIY for the spark plug change to eliminate all the work associated with the removal of the intake plenum?

Thank you so much Peter.

As for the throttle actuators, in the other thread, there is a link to the M5board (http://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/e60...-actuator.html) where the throttle actuator were taken apart and it looks like the plastic gears were wearing out prematurely. Would be great if you can come up with something also. I am hunting around at R/C gears but doubtful they will work.

No problem Phillip, it was a blast doing this, especially with the new tool. Thanks again Peter for the tool, it worked out great.

They ended up sending me 27 pieces so I will be able to cover a couple more people price will be $35 shipped.

Please send Paypal to: petermarkmiddleton@gmail.com

Please include your Forum name with the paypal order.

Now I'm not currently setup to keep track of all the people who put their name on the list and cross check against paypal. However I will give the people originally signed up two weeks to send out the paypal. After that any extras will be on a first come first serve basis. If that doesnt sound fair please let me know as I am sure I can work something out. I just cant think of a better way. I obviously have my own money tied up in these things sooooo....

When I receive the paypal I will send a private message to the sender on here to verify they are the right person.

Hope everybody stays honest and waits until I close the first buy before trying to send money through paypal and snag someone elses. I hope to be ordering a bunch more of these soon so please be patient if you didnt get one this time.

Other than that. I will ship out as soon as paypal and shiping address is received and I get a confirmation through private message on here. Tracking number will be sent upon ship.

Thanks Guys! If you have any problems at all let me know. Your feedback is much appreciated!

Updated List and Date for Spares.

Okay so all the poeple on the list should either have received their tool or be close to it - except maybe the guy in Hawaii!

The updated list is shown below Victor H, Monk, BimmerRob08 and Chibich have all been sent private messages asking if they are still interested they have not yet paid. If I do not hear back from them by Monday I will begin selling the extras. There will be six total I believe. The only fair way to do this is to start a new list for the six spares. I know some people will say well I asked first etc, but keeping track of all that would of been very difficult. Trust me just getting all these pieces shipped out has been logisitically difficult enough. Cross checking names and making sure everybody received a tracking number...Anyway below the list of original people is a list of 6 blank numbers. Please copy just tha list only and post it in a post with your name. If somebody already has the first spot taken...copy theirs and put your name in the number two spot...until they are all filled.

I am going to make some adjustments and if there is enough interest make a second batch but no promises right now. Play nice everybody...thanks TXSTIG
