Muffler bearing issue
When dealing with a dysfuctional muffler bearing you must first assertain if the franastat adjustment is correct. This can be accomplished by applying a metric dialog to digital converting spectral meter. If the reading is in the green then you are good, if not then the widgets need to be adjusted, first the left forward one then the right lateral one and so on... You will need a specialized spanner for this operation. If you can't get it from your local BMW dealer then go to hardtoimaginethesetoolseverexisted.com and search for widget spanner/metric. Once the franastat is correct then it is a simple process adjusting the muffler bearing. This should be a straight forward job from here and once completed you should experience no more zizzing and dripping. Good luck. I will ask the moderators to include this in the Hall of Inane Posts That Suck Up Band Width.
BTW, to whom it may concern the new site looks great!
