    I have an F30 320d with 85k miles on the clock. The car drives smoothly, all the power and acceleration is there, however, if I drive more aggressively and change up gears at revs higher than 2,500 rpm then there is a strong vibration at the point of gear change. I've done some texting and...

    I've got some new rear drop links, bolts, nuts and brackets. I can't get the bloody bottom part of the drop link off of the ARB. I've tried both WD40 and silicone spray with PTFE to lube it up.
