    Well put my car in for mot. It failed but only on a front lower ball joint, so that was a bonus. :-). Advisory was droplinks. Thing is the arm has dropped off the ball joint so chances are the arm is too worn to just replace the ball joint. So I'll be replacing the whole arm and as one is worn...

    one of the advisory's on my e36 328 was the wishbone rear bush was starting to show signs of wear, being a Powerflex fan i see they do a Black series bush to replace it. Has anyone used them before, any pro's/con's of replacing them with stiffer bushes instead of factory ones many thanks
