I'm still trying to get to the bottom of what this humming is at
The mech I saw on Saturday thought the inner edge of my rear passenger
tyre was feathering a bit - but I couldn't see it or feel it to be

alignment done again - but this time on 528i Sport with lowered
After I'd had the January alignement done, I ended up having to replace
the rear top mounts (that was when the spring was squeaking), and I

Is the warm tyre thing normal and do those alignment settings look ok?
