I was pulling out of my neighborhood and I sort of got on it, I wasn’t peeling out but definitely moving. Going into second the car jerked and thudded really loud. It...

    Hey everyone, The shifter in my e46 M3 6MT with ~130k miles has been quite loose ever since I bought it at 100k miles. It's just general slop –*no specific direction, just loose overall. I really noticed it after driving some stock manual bimmers with tight shifters. Any ideas on what parts to...
