    Hello everyone, I’ve just purchased an e46 325Ci. The car has 111k miles on it and has been decently well maintained. The car has 1 issue with pretty aggressive shaking under acceleration that feels like it’s coming from the front left drivers side, almost if something is slapping around in...

    I’ve got a 2002 325xi with 120k miles on it. Automatic transmission. Over the last few months it developed a shake when accelerating but ONLY after it got warm. I took it to a mechanic who told me it was probably the drive shaft, but the cost of parts and labor weren’t justified. So I found a...

    Hi! I'm a fresh owner of a 320cd 2005 and lately i've been experiencing some shaking under high load usually in 3rd gear 1900-2500rpm or starting 50-60km/h. Every other gear is ok without any issue. And feels like is under the arm rest. Anyone got an idea what should i look up to?

    In case I turn the engine on and then push the throttle immediately I am going to have a wonderful journey for the rest of the day, no matter city roads, freeway or High way; or low speed / high speed. Does not matter either if I stop sometimes or not. Or turn off the engine and then start...

    I have a 2004 325i with really bad idling, when I start the car, it shakes for a bit and goes away after like 15-20 secs but it continues to kick no matter what, it’s like a knocking noise coming from the engine when I’m at idle or going slow, it goes away when I’m going fast. I have p0174...

    My 2003 325i is experiencing some issues between 40mph and 60mph. I have not been able to reproduce the issue, but my wife is the one who drives this car most of the time. When the car gets above 40mph, there is a rhythmic thud that she says sounds like is coming from just behind the driver's...

    Hello everyone! *I have a 2004 325i M56 (unfortunately) and I have a few questions to ask. I got 3 error codes: P0172&0175 (Bank 1 and 2 running too rich) along with P2122 (throttle position sensor), which I would assume is built into the throttle body? *My second thinking is that my MAF is...

    Hey guys im having some vibration issues in my 325xi. I recently replaced my tie rods, front control arms, and front axle. Would bad transmission mounts cause vibration? I know the xi has some "special" mount that nobody seems to have a diy for even though its pretty simple. I have some...

    I just bought a 330xi with quite a few problems, I've fixed the CSB/flex disc, new rear shocks, also new brake discs and new pads all around, + a bunch of little things for inspection. When I put the car in gear and release the clutch I hear a low pitched clunk as the drivetrain engages. When...

    Hello E46 Forums. I appreciate your time for reviewing my post and I appreciate all inputs. Earlier today I took my MT 2003 325xi for a 2 Hour trip of about 100ish miles. This is the first time taking it on this long of a drive. After about and hour or so of driving I started to get a fairly...

    Hey everyone, So I hopped into my wifes 323i yesterday and noticed that when I turn the steering wheel to the right (and only the right) that I have a bad vibration that seems to be on the passenger side on the front (I could be wrong). I took it to our local tire shop and had them balance the...

    Hey I have looked at a few posts here and on other forums regarding this but I would like more opinions on this. I have an issue with steering in the 60-80 kph zone (35-50 mph zone). The wheel starts to wobble and shake a bit. I have had the wheels balanced and aligned and the problem still...

    When I drive at high speed and brake the steering wheel shakes while the car is braking anytime I am in the 45-55MPH range. I changed both front tires and had both tires high speed balanced. Yet problem still persists. Any ideas on what this problem could be?

    Just bought an 03 zhp sedan w/ 145k and I love the car except this one issue. I've had it about a week now and it drives flawlessly once it's warmed up, but every morning I experience the rough idle and a violent shaking. By the way it's about 80 degrees so it's not an ambient temperature issue...
