Good call Buzzard.
I've done 98k and no sign of wear <finds bit of wood to touch>I'd like to think there were other factors involved in the failure; thrashing; deep off road wading and failure to clean it off?
Europe's nations should be guided towards a super state without their people understanding what is happening. This can be accomplished by successive steps each disguised as having an economic purpose, but which will eventually and irreversibly lead to federation.

The propshaft on a 2.5 and 5.0 is the same.
All other models use the same, slightly longer, propshaft :)

Buzzard - Sorry, not quite sure: are you still on the original prop shaft?

And what about re-maps?

Since most end up using a remap for the powwwwerrrrr rather than doing it for economy, could the extra stresses and loads be a contributing factor?

Another bearing failure to add to the list, hey ho.

76000 miles 2006 V10.

Fortunately it let me drive to Paris and back with the family before it gave up the ghost just 300 miles later. Phew

There is absolutely no warning as others have said. Drove up very steep hill making what I would say decent progress and no sign. 10 miles later another hill and suddenly a lound banging. Managed to limp home, under minimal throttle pressure and as long as no hills it remained smooth. Thanks to this place, I knew exactly what it was and how much it was probably going to cost so not a major panic, otherwise I would have already landed at the dealers and now be crying quietly in a darkened room !!!!!! and at least I wasn't stranded.

It really goes to show if your car has done over 50k the small price to pay for refurbishing it takes away the chance of so much grief.

Mine gone today, at 95k. Waited for 90 minutes on M4 before AA arrived. No warning. Just loud bang underneath the car. Managed to drive to a safe place. At 11.30 p.m., I put the car on a flatbed and sent it to a garage I trust. Will work with the garage and Warranty Direct tomorrow.
