BTW: When the bomb fails, you will know it because you will loose brake assist and the brake pedal will slow to respond in quick applications...it just feels odd, but does not cause the brakes to drag (at least not on my E28).
Yes...I'm the one with the brake problems...
Just talked to a BMW dealer service guy about the brakes and I had mentioned to him that I just bought this car and he point out blank asked me if I was rich? they he followed up and said that I'll need to be.
They he made a very bold statement saying that the 89 750iL is probably the worst car that BMW has ever made! He starting listing off all the things that typically go wrong with this car....ouch!
About the brakes....he thinks that it's the 'hydro ball'. What the hell is that? He said that it's in the firewall and VERY expensive to replace. Any ideas?
