I bought the car a month ago, at 5700KM (young used card) from a BMW dealer in Germany. The car has now 10.800 KM and it developed an engine sound, like an used bearing, or a belt...

And...

    E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I've just bought a set of braided hoses to fit at the same time as discs and pads since the hoses are just as old as the car but I couldn't find the tightening torques. I can see just looking at them that it would be easy to over tighten them and have leaky threads, and just as easy to leave...
