Your advice is noted, but the suspension bushings need replacement
after 10 years of life and 134k miles or so. When I'm in there, I want
everything replaced- why spend all of that time and money to replace
some of the things and not the others, esp. if you may need to replace
the other parts in a year or so?

A friend of mine did the complete bushing replacement this year and he
noted a huge improvment in the way the car felt, as others have posted.

I'm getting the car to the point where I can hang with an E39 540i sport
without problems.
