Nice work, I definately will be looking at my water pump, rear shock towers, radiator, and front outer ball joints. I have an E36 problem that may or may not be just mine, so here goes:
anyone else, if you have this problem, please tell me: my 99 328ic (e36) with 80,000mi has a plastic lip that runs along the front lip of the convertible top headliner. It's right where the convertible top meets the windshield. The lip is held in place in front by tongue & groove construction, and the headliner is fastened to the rear by screws & washers, and the sides are held to the convertible top frame by clips with retainer pins. The clips and the lip look like they're one integral piece when made, so despite my multiple attempts to glue them back into place (and wait 12-24 hours before reinstalling the lip), they keep breaking. It's really annoying when you have to hold the lip in place when putting the top up...I love my car, and this problem is bothering me. Anyone else having this problem or know of a bmw junkyard in sc, nc, or ga?
