Also, see below.

Thanks Coulter at MPORIUM!
Holy crap, I took a similar picture of mine a couple months ago. We're lucky gravity is on our side.

E90 6MT checking in at 138k. Got it last year with 124k. I worked on cars and airplanes for most of my career, switched to finance and wanted something to work on while I sit at a desk. Needless to say I got what I asked for.

The guy I bought it from drove it on the weekends and I daily it so all the gremlins came out: driveshaft, TAs, one rebuilt, one replaced, battery, starter, alternator, tires, 30hr leather restoration on seats, new steering wheel, M5 shift knob (highly recommend), motor mounts, tranny mounts, Guibo, all drivetrain fluids flushed.

On deck: replacing cracked fuel filter housing tomorrow, just bought B&G springs, and currently researching a suspension refresh and exhaust cutouts.

Even with the above this car is an absolute joy and only left me stranded when the alternator went, which is partly my fault because I saw the warning signs a couple days in advance and did nothing.

How did you know you had both a guibo and driveshaft replacement issue?

Center support bearing was squeaking and had a driveline vibration. Replaced the Guibo because I was in there anyways. Replaced the entire driveshaft because I didn't feel like pressing bearings and I figured it couldn't hurt.

The Guibo didn't look worn at all, but I'm sure the integrity of the rubber degraded. Saw the same with the tranny mounts, looked fine but there was a very noticeable difference with new ones.

I’ve done throttle actuators, thermostat and new shocks. I need to do the valve cover gaskets next.


Right behind you 138k on OG bearings.
