    General E46 Forum
    I have a quiet but annoying interior noise. Sound like crickets. On start up and sometimes while driving. I am convinced it's the ECU Fan (firewall near your left foot when driving). The noise isn't bad but if it's failing that's I presume a bad thing as I don't want my ECU to overheat. Has...

  14. M3 Electric Fan Conversion?

    ///M3 Forum
    Alright, so the auxiliary electric fan on my M is rattling around. It's bad enough to cause noises in the cabin with the windows up.
