I had the alignment done today. It's 17mm. Bushes all look fine and no obvious play anywhere or signs of any previous knocks which is always reassuring. I was surprised how close the rear driver side arch trim is to the suspension arm. That could easily cause a slight knocking sound as possibly could one of the wires to the rear lights.

I think the knocking was the boot again. I had put a bit of duck tape around the loop but it'd worn thin. I've just put a bit of fresh gorilla tape around it and the knocking seems to have gone.

The catch (on the car shell, not boot lid) can be adjusted to be made a bit tighter.

Thanks. I didn't realise that. I'll have a look.

There are two little round plugs either side of the catch. Pop them out and the nuts to adjust it are underneath.

Thanks. I think you can also unwind the bump stops a bit (though their design doesn't seem to be as robust as on our e53 x5).

Ohlins, or KW clubsport would be my choice, the standard stuff is good from factory so it needs to be good to swap to
