Wozzatthen ???

That resolution went straight out of the window on NYE... Finally called time at 1 am ;D

Worst month on the calendar and some masochists try and tackle it without alcohol. ::)
I've been dry since before Xmas.  That must be a new record.

Commendable ....but dull.

Sometimes you have to sample "professional" stuff to make sure yours is up to snuf

This is my dislocated nearside driveshaft, which hopefully is the culprit!  :)

As you can see it's pulled out of the diff about 50mm and I can't shift it so the local garage are picking it up in the morning. Fingers crossed they can sort it for a reasonable price.  :-\

Most likely a driveshaft joint stripped its splines,Beemer diffs are quite tough stuff normally  :y
I think you'd hear/feel that happening, Henry. Tigger said he lost power and didn't mention any nasty noises. It's more likely it's just popped out, I think.
But.....until the lazy bastard has a look and let's us know, it's only guesswork.
Yay!

If you are offended by anything I post, sorry. Just thought I'd get that in now.
