    don't know whether anyone can help, I'm currently holidaying in prestatyn with family and there are loads of speed humps on the campsite.

    As we were were coming home the other day from beach we heard a really load noise that seem to come from under the gear box, it sounded almost like we were dragging tin under the car, the RAC came out and he removed the exhaust sheild and said there was a stone chip trapped between the propshaft and the sheild, once this was removed she seemed fine, we went back into town and it was back, I pulled into a local garage and they removed the sheild again and said that I needed a new propshaft centre mounting they said there was alot of play, the car Is driving fine now without the sheilds, however they said I would need to go to a BMW main dealer for a replacement part is this true and is it costly, strangley enough there is no sign of the mounting, there is scratching on the sheillds. The garage said it would be fine for me to drive back to shropshire which is only an hour.

    You can go to the main dealer for the part or a motor factor may have the part, somewhere like German Swedish and French

    Yeah, you can go to GSF and buy the part.....

    Avoid the main dealers is my advice

    If you list your model and year of E30 I will post up what parts options you have
