Please don't flame too bad if this subject has been beaten to death (I did search the archives). I'm the new guy, remember :) Whilst I had the auto shifter out of the car (was wobbly, why would such an over-engineered car use three little sheet metal clips to hold in the shifter assembly), I was able to peer down directly to the flex disc/guibo. Even though I don't have any strange vibrations yet, it is showing signs of coming apart. On one of the other forums, I read that one could potentially replace the stock item with the more expensive but heavier-duty M5 unit. Is this the case for the 525 automatic as well? Are the guibos for automatics vs manuals vs older vs newer the same size?

Thanks again for any help.
