What do you reckon it will cost in repairs at my local garage
(cant afford bmw labour)
Heres a simple test to check your control arms. Have ur amigo drive yoru car say like 2 mph. then brake hard. All the while you look at your front tires. If they shake when he brakes ahrd, then your looking at new control arms.
...I'm not very knowledgeable on BMW suspensions, but I thought the ball joint is the end of the control arm?
I'd say if its the control arms, then parts should cost you $100 US max. Probably find a good set on ebay for $80, and maybe aluminum ones for like $135.
