Which part is holed? the "spring/bag" itself? if yes then you need a new one.

Also if you have two BMW's then you can have both listed in your Car specs box as found in your User CP. :thumbsup

My 99 523i did this, it needed a new bag which was £140 plus fitting (can DIY it). Not saying this is your problem as I guess the piping can go too?
Having said that my car still goes down but now only after about 4 days left not 12 hrs as previous! Lucky i didn't pay for the new bag or I would be gutted.
Just replace the part with the hole in it with a NEW part, no use going second hand as it will just go again.
