Just driving the E53 for the moment It is fun, feels pint sized compared to the other vehicles we own. Kids, wife, myself, we all like to take it out for quick runs. Even took it to Philadelphia a few weeks back. Yesterday drove it out to Silver Spring BMW to picked up a batch of E70 parts (Working on the E70 intake and vac lines).

I have a foot long crack in the windscreen on the passenger side. Too busy to find a good supplier right now so that will be the "one thing broken/outstanding" to ward off the gremlins!

Thanks! She deserved a bath after sitting and waiting for the ABS Module rebuild and replacement.

Have any of you ever had a wheel bearing go bad? What were your symptoms, how did you narrow down which wheel was the culprit?

Scooby-Doo.... Ruh-Ro!

Or more of a ruh-ruh-ruh-ruh actually, that increases in frequency matching your speed.

Hard to track down which it is. Turning sometimes give it away, increasing in volume with increased load.

Yeah. Its something on the passenger side, can't figure out front or rear. Seems like it changes depending on load on the car.

I have deleted the resonator today. Very curious how it sounds in real life!
