    Just got this car about a month or 2 ago and it’s awesome. Everything drives smooth and quiet until last night I was driving with my girlfriend towards downtown Houston. Now In Houston the roads aren’t so smooth with lots of potholes,dips,and cracks. I went over a pothole at 30mph and afterwards...

  3. E46 M3
    Just tonight I noticed a small clunking noise appearing to come from the rear driver's side. It's not very loud. I can't hear it when driving around town. I only noticed because I was driving through a drive-through restaurant and the sound reflected off the wall well enough for me to hear it...

    Hello everyone that is reading this. I just bought an 03 325i on June 4th and didn't realize until I was home that the rear suspension was sagging (very bad on my part I know) and that the rear wheels had severe negative wheel camber to them. when I go over bumps you can hear rattling in the...

    I stopped, the driver behind me didn't notice. Took the hat right off my head, and the whole thing occured right in front of the police station. My rear bumper obviously needs to be replaced, but what else should I have my mechanic look at specifically? Sub frame, and...? How much does it...

    I've got a 2002 325i. Vandals broke the rear passenger window, so after cleanup I recovered the red clip and installed it on the new window. I removed the lower inside trim and lower outside weatherseal but I still can't figure out how to maneuver the window to go inside the tracks on each side...

    So I've been surching around for probably an hour now. Does anyone have any information or a DIY link on how to remove the back folding seats. The bottom pieces easy I know you just have to pull up on both sides and the bottom comes out. I'm not exactly sure how the backseat comes out. And all...

    I drive my car relatively calmly but I discovered a while back that I'm now financially ready to take care. Whenever I do brake and gas at the same time, there's a heart wrenching grinding noise. It sounds like two metal pieces grinding together. I tried it today to see if the issue was still...

    Hi, I am getting a weird mosquito-like noise from the rear passenger wheel. I can only hear it when the window is down and louder when it bounces back from parked cars or fences when I drive by. It's a high pitch, mosquito like sound which starts manifesting at and over 45 - 50km/h. It is...

    Hi all, I recently acquired M-Tech style/ZHP style front and rear bumpers for my E46 330Ci. I am currently at the installation stage, but right now, it seems that I am missing a few brackets for mounting the new bumpers on the car. I would really love it if someone could tell me what I was...

    Hey guys, I'm new to the forum here. I already searched high and low for the answer to my problem, but I'm struggling. I just purchased a 2004 BMW 330xi w/o Premium Package. It has the rain sensor, but not the auto dimming rear view mirror. My old car is a 2003 BMW 325xi w/ Premium Package, it...

    Hi all - My 2001 (04/2001) 330i was hit in a parking lot. Not too major. Someone in an X5 backed into me, despite her backup warning buzzer going off the whole time... Anyway... I talked to the guy who is overseeing the body work, which is a top notch facility in town. I asked him if I...

    2000 323ci 133k miles with a grinding/whump noise from the rear, seems to be on the driver's side, resembling a failed wheel bearing. Just replaced all 4 wheel bearings, brand new F.A.G parts, and the persisting noise is similar to the failing rear wheel bearing that prompted the replacement...

  18. E46 M3
    Hi all, A friend of mine who owns an 06 e46 m3 vert is looking for a rear diffuser. The only name that came to my mind was Vorsteiner, but I was hoping for any suggestions you all might have. The car is not a hard-core track car or anything like that, so good fitment and aesthetics are really...

    First off I am most certainly new to the BMW world, so thank you for any answers. I did look through the forums for about an hour and couldnt find any direct answers to my question. 04 330ci 148,000mi The previous owner put 19" M3 rims off of a newer M3 and they look smashing. My problem is...

    Hi all My first post, so I hope I'm in the right place. Sorry if it's not. My 2003 E46 has developed a ticking sound that only appears when coasting. Under load (accelerating or maintaining speed) there is no noise but as soon as the accelerator is let go it starts tick tick ticking. It appears...
