I've heard the prize for 10,000 miles is a free dress. Personally, I wouldn't know, though.

As long as the dress gets here in time for the big ball. =) I'll also accept douchey bmw model attire.

IEDEI - how's she feel at the 50k mark? Exactly the same? How many miles have you put on now? like 15k?

Congrats, im on 30.000mls and am taking mine back to have the rear diff, diff mount, and subframe inspected due to me feeling alot of slack in the drive train, whenever i go on or off the throttle i get a dull thud from one of those areas,,

It happened once before and BMW had the whole thing apart and couldnt find anything wrong officially.
When i spoke to the technician he said the the diff hanger bolts were loose but wasnt sure how or if that was the issue.
It came back working perfectly so i assume for now that the bolts have worked loose again.

Clearly this is a torque issue as opposed to mileage, as you guys say your car still feels tight as a drum..

It definately effecting the rear end. to the point the car looses traction alot more and you can feel the car flexing/twisting like it has flat rear tyres.

will drop it off wednesday and keep you updated.

If rear end, I'd look at shocks, shock mounts, and differential and subframe bushings (none of which should suffer early failure).
