Default Non m3 car problem

Sorry for posting it here, but looks like I canít figure it on my own.
My e91 wagon has a weird sort of grinding/rubbing sound when making left turn and putting some load on the suspension (I.e. not slow turns). It really sounds like wheel rubbing or dull grinding. Iíve changed entire suspension, subframe, and suspension bushings, diff fluid, replaced front and checked rear bearings. Wheels are not rubbing as that sound was there with smallest r16 wheels and 2+Ē wheel-fender gaps. I think the sound is coming from the rear, but I may be wrong. I know that it may be to little info. But I really just donít know what to check next. Transmission/motor mounts are only things that are old. I am puzzled that it is just when you do left turns... diff maybe? I swapped the fluid and it did not help.

Will be helpful for any ideas. Thank you.

The n52 forum is awesome. I'm sure the rest of the forum is also. You'd be silly not to give them a shout if nobody else can help you

Thank you. I will make an account there. They have a lot of posts that turned me down... like talks about reliability and getting rid of the car after 70k as maintenance becomes too expensive. Also first 3 mods you must do to the car: de-badge, chrome exhaust tips and smoked tail lights :-). I might be too biased.

Not like you don't get those sort of posts here too. Hell, I've probably made a few. My maintenance costs will likely exceed $10k this year, I totally get the impulse to move on.
