Am fairly certain this happened to Richie from Pro-Parts with his old 325i - will ask him who did the work. Try giving Robert Furley a buzz as well - he's just about as cheap as it gets, but extremely good at what he does.

I had this problem recently in my E46 323ci. BM covered the job which would have cost upwards of 4k!!! They told me it was 40hrs of labour + parts. Ouch!!
