    535D SOUNDS LIKE A TRACTOR :(

    HI ALL, IM NEW TO ALL THIS BOUGHT MYSELF A 2004 535D. EVERY RECEIPT FOR THE CAR, ALL SERVICED BY BMW UP UNTIL APRIL 2015. I WAS RETURNING FROM A TRIP TO THE SOUTH OF UK AND BACK AT THE WEEKEND AND ON THE WAY BACK I WAS CRUISING AT 70/75MPH. I GOT CAUGHT BEHIND A BAD BOY CORSA WHO WOULDNT SHIFT INTO THE MIDDLE LANE SO I UNDERTOOK HIM. IN MY FRUSTRATION I PUT MY FOOT DOWN. A WAY TO SHOW HIM WHO IS BOSS REALLY. WE ALL DO IT. AS I ACCELERATED FROM 70 TO AROUND 100 (I HAD MUSIC BLASTING) I NOTICED A STRANGE VIBRATION SUDDENLY. I SLOWED DOWN TO AROUND 60 AND TURNED MY MUSIC OFF. GUT WRENCHING THINKING I HAD BLEW UP MY BEAUTY. THE 535 STILL SEEMED TO HAVE THE POWER THERE BUT IT SOUNDED HORRIFIC, AS IF THE EXHAUST WAS BLOWING MASSIVELY. AT FIRST I THOUGHT IT MAY HAVE BEEN THE EXHAUST MID SECTION. IT SOUNDED LIKE IT WAS COMING FROM THAT AREA. I PULLED OVER IN THE NEXT SERVICES, 5 MILES DOWN THE ROAD AND INVESTIGATED FURTHER. THE SOUND WASNT COMING FROM THE EXHAUST AS I HAD HOPED. I POKED MY HEAD UNDER THE CAR AND SAW/HEARD NOTHING BAD FROM THERE. HOWEVER AT IDLE, THE ENGINE SOUNDED HORRIBLE. I SHUT THE CAR DOWN STRAIGHT AWAY AND TRIED TO START IT AGAIN 10 MINUTES LATER WHILST I WAITED FOR MY FRIEND WITH HIS TOW TRUCK. THE SOUND WAS STILL BAD BUT WASNT AS BAD AS WHEN IT WAS WARMER WHEN I HAD PULLED OVER. THE CAR IS NOW SAT ON MY DRIVEWAY AND IM AWAY IN SCOTLAND FOR WORK. I PLAN TO GET HOME TO IT AT THE WEEKEND AND HAVE A BETTER LOOK AND MAYBE EVEN CALL THE AA OUT TO SEE IF THEY CAN EVALUATE THE SITUATION. TILL THEN, DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEAS? OR HAS ANYONE EXPERIENCED THIS BEFORE? IM HOPING ITS NOT TOO PRICEY, ALREADY HAD TO COUGH UP FOR A NEW CRANK VIBRATION PULLEY, ALTERNATOR AND AIR CON COMPRESSOR. WITH NEW BELT OF COURSE. HELP PLEASE GUYS GREATEST REGARDS TOM
