    Hey guys, I've been searching for this for some time now but i haven't seen one that is quite like mine (maybe I just don't know how to describe it). So like the title says there's been a buzzing like sound when I let of the gas in any gear at first it was most noticable in second gear but now...

    Hey everyone, I've started to notice a humming noise in my 05 M3 when the steering wheel is centered or turned left. It's accompanied by a slight but noticeable vibration that I can feel in the footwell and through the steering wheel. The noise and vibration disappears when I turn to the right...

    For a while now I have had an odd groaning sound when starting the engine. It's only when starting and doesn't happen when driving or at any other time. Happens during cold and warm starts. My vanos is being replaced this week, wonder if that could be related? Here is a link to the recording...

    So I've been having an annoying squeak coming from under my 2005 325i (5 speed manual) for quite some time now and it is driving me nuts. It sounds to be coming from the front of the vehicle, but I'm not 100% sure. The steering feel and alignment of the vehicle is good. It happens all the time...

    A whistle noise comes from my e46 and I cant figure it out... The noise is not coming from the engine; i hear it on the drivers side window closer to side mirror. The noise only comes with car speed so its definetley something to do with wind blowing thru a crack or something Does anybody else...

    Hello, I encountered a problem with my e46. There is annoying screeching noise coming near DISA. I took out and checked DISA few months ago, it seemed alright. I don't wanna speculate here so I will leave a video with that noise and perhaps somebody had exact same issue and knows the solution...

    https://streamable.com/6rixvg Hi all Got a nice noise this morning... I presume a fan belt but I have never had a bad one myself so just curious for your thoughts. It speeds up when I accelerate so presumably a belt/ pulley issue. Could you let me know what you think? Also if it is a belt...

    I replaced my flywheel, clutch and throw out bearing with the Valeo single mass conversion kit. Also replaced the pilot bearing. There's a noise/vibration coming from the transmission trough the shifter. It happens in neutral and while driving only when applying throttle. I could be coasting in...

    Friends, I recently replaced the CVV, associated hoses, valve cover, and spark plugs. Shortly thereafter I noticed a new engine sound, sort of like a diesel engine. No dashboard lights, but it does seem to affect performance. My oil level sensor has never worked, but I check religiously...

    Hoping someone has heard this noise before and can help me diagnose it. It sounds like the old retractable antenna electric motors do when the cord breaks and they keep spinning. Thanks for the help! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=um6sMjbXvtA_a_

    Hello all. I have a E46 M3 with an SMG transmission. I recently replaced the clutch along with several other parts. Parts include rear main seal, DM flywheel, pressure plate, clutch disc, shift fork, throwout bearing, pivot pin (brass), slave cylinder, and compression springs. I bled the...

    I am trying to identify the source of this noise when my steering is standstill, that is, when I am NOT turning the wheel. When I turn the steering wheel, ever so slightly, the noise is completely gone. Does anyone have any ideas what might be the cause of that? I am attaching a link to a video...

    2003 BMW 330xi: This has started happening recently. Whenever I start the car (especially cold) there is a cricket-like chirping noise coming form the engine compartment. This noise confuses and concerns me because I put completely new belts, tensioners, and pulleys on the engine (back in mid...

    Recently bought a 325ci it's a 2001 117k on the clock. The brakes make a buzzing/vibrating sound which you feel through the brake pedal when at low speeds coming to a stop. Spoke to Halfords and they said could be the rotors being warped although im not convinced (pretty sure front pads need...

    Hi everybody, I tried launching my car pretty hard today (before this I've haven't pushed it while launching). Got the wheels to spin a bit, and while I was gaining traction back, the whole car started shaking violently--the gear stick was really vibrating--, and then I heard a loud thud at the...

    Hey all I think the "help a noob" tag is the most fitting for this one First time poster though have used the site a handful of times already. I had a quick search through the forums to try and find an answer to my question though there are a lot of posts about new weird noises so it was like...

    When my 330ci starts after a few hours of non use, it makes a deep "whale" noise that lasts for about a second each time. It makes like 3-4 groans then continues normally. Very strange as it does not seem steering or speed dependent. Looked through the threads and I haven't found a satisfactory...
