    Greetings everyone, Looked online with regards to this issue and almost everyone says this is A/C relate but nobody provides a definative solution, funny thing is in my case I have an AC delete and the issue they describe is identical to mine. For 30 odd seconds after shutting down my m54...

    I am planning on replacing my headers with catless headers, and I am kind of tempted to start the car once the old headers are off, and without the new ones installed yet, just to see how extremely loud it would be. Would I do any damage by running the car without any exhaust connected to the...

    I recently bought a nice 330xi but one problem I had is that the speakers inside are obviously ancient and most of them sound like they are torn, so I was wondering what is the best bang for your buck complete systems out there. I would like more bass but as long as they are better than stock I...

    Looking at buying one alpine type x sub to fit in my spare tire well. I'm looking at amps to pair it up with, but I'm kind of confused on which one I should get.

    I am wondering if anybody knows what causes this noise? I got the video off YouTube but it sounds exactly like what I am experiencing. I hear it mainly when going uphill. Recently had it into a shop and was told my front end is all good but that is where I feel this is coming from... Recently...

    For quite a while now there has been a metal on metal clank sound that comes from the rear going over every single bump (small divets in the road) so when Im driving on a rough road it is clinking like crazy and i hate it. Ive taken all my tools out of the trunk, taken out the jack and spare...

    I have the harmon Kardon sound system in my 325xi. The guy who had it before me, blew all the speakers and the amp is also blown. Did this come with a sub? I don't think so. So I've replaced 2 speakers already and that helped. My question is should just replace the factory amp and buy a sub? Or...

    Half-joking half-serious thread.. a couple days ago I replaced my fuel filter after a long time trying to track down issues causing my fuel consumption to be ridiculous (like 14L/100km, ~17MPG). This fuel filter change ultimately got my mileage down to great levels. I did other repairs along...

    Hi everyone, This noise might be split into two.. The loud ‘pop’/knock when shifting between reverse/drive/park etc is very loud and noticeable. I have been told by mechanics it is likely backlash in my diff.. Second, is a general knocking in the rear when making sharp turns/ going over...

    I've been able to capture a deep rumbling sound emitting from behind the dashboard's instrument cluster in the referenced video. It seems to be right behind the headlight controls. It is present for about 5 seconds immediately after starting the car, and then disappears completely before...

    Hey guys, Bought my 325i a month ago, drove and felt absolutely perfect. Only done 3 long journeys, the last one being a couple of weeks back - it's at 78K miles and hasn't had any previous issues regarding sounds or performance. About a week ago, I noticed an odd tapping sound when I was...

    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...

    Today it finally hit below freezing in Maryland. My 2002 325i is in a garage so it's not as cold. When I started her up today, it started just as fast as regular but with a sound I can only deacribe as a fan blowing at full blast. Its was very sudden as she drove fine with no sounds yesterday...

    So I recently was jamming out to my music and my rear deck speakers were blown out so I need replacements. I was looking to get infinity speakers. What size are the rear deck speakers and any advice? :hi:
