Motor mount has sheared causing damage to drive shaft. Stress and tear also done to transfer case.

Adding up quickly.

Anyone have any suggestions?
wow! Where did you take it to get the $5k estimate? Is this a common problem? Did you buy the car new?

Sorry for all of the questions. Tom Bradley would be your best bet http://www.bradleymotorwerke.com/ or of course Ed over at Bavarian. But for a absurd problem such as this on components that shouldn't be failing, I would get BMWNA on the phone and explain to them how this is stopping you from buying that new 5 series you have been looking at... and see if they would be willing to pick up any of the bill. Previous owner of my car was able to get them to pay for about 70% of a certain repair 4 years after the warranty expired.
