( said theres an update ) i didnt know he did that,,, till i picked up the car yesterday... so one good thing became of my mishap...

Again,, i wana thank all who posted ur help and concerns for my car,, u guys are,,,,, da Best ! and what makes this site so freakin Kool ,,,,,,
Since the N62 in the 545i has a stretch belt for the A/C, and sounds like you added a tensioner to the block like the 745i has - what is the new belt P/N?
