Sounds like you need something like a spade bolt something that is not difficult to fabricate and stronger than an eye welded to threaded rod. Something you can. Just buy in certain sizes and easy enough to fabricate in any size.
Here you go Andrew.

Then, not on the E53, but my Dad's F10. I got tired of looking at his very poorly etched screen on the odd occurrence I'm in it (brought it over recently for shimmy diagnosis and noise - warped rotor, noise TBD) and so ordered up a polishing kit from Amazon, a screen protector, and some polishing pads for the drill. Results are impressive. Going to do this to all of our OE screens now even though they aren't nearly as bad as his.
