ive been looking into fixes myself for the oil nut issue (i wont rehash the reasons why people seem theorize that it happens). It seems that welding the nut to the shaft causes the shaft to fail down the road, and a drilled nut with a safety wire isnt much better.

Ive read that people have had more success with the oil pump upgrade kit from vac: http://store.vacmotorsports.com/vac-...kit-p1077.aspx

just wish it wasnt $200

btw the drilled nut with safety wire can be found on bw:http://store.bimmerworld.com/m50-dri...-nut-p640.aspx
