That's why I hate working on the BMW. Everything has to be ordered or it will cost an arm and leg.

I still do a bounce test with my shocks/struts. If the car doesn't bounce back from your weight - definitely bad.
If there is a leak - also bad. Uneven tire tread wear - also bad.

The only hoses that could be improperly routed would not be the coolant hoses. And the water hoses are highly unlikely to have been replaced.

M50s are not that tough to bleed. No doubt you did it properly. If the car overheats your best bet would be to replace the thermostat - even if it is not the original problem. Make sure you drill a...
