    I am waiting for a new set of updated springs and dampers to arrive for my 07 330D. The standard rear top mounts seem to get bad press for being a bit soft so what would you recommend I upgrade them to? Will M3 mounts fit?

    The car has just passed 132k miles and for all of that it still drives and feels solid and tight. However, on some occasions, most noticeably over speed humps (and I tend to baby the car over traffic calming measures so it’s not had a hard life), I hear a bit of a creak and a groan from the...
