    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:

    Hi all, I did a search but didnt really pick up any answers to my question. I have the below cable which was ordered with the car. I've found a cable which will connect IPOD connection to Iphone 6 but I dont know if the headunit will still recognise? Please see attachments.

    Hi all! Before you tell me to look it up, I have already. I have a 1999 323i with non-HK sound, so HK speakers are not supposed to be compatible with my car without a new wiring loom and amplifier. Anyway, I picked up an HK midrange speaker (the 2.5" on the front doors) from a scrapyard. I...

  13. E46 Touring
    Hey everyone. So I have decided that I want to do an electric cutout on my exhaust system. I'd like to have the original stock sound for cruising and not sounding obnoxious, but still get a loud, aggressive, crackly sound for car meets, empty parking garages, tunnels, and underpasses. Here's...
  14. E46 Touring
    Hello, all. I have a 2000 BMW e46 323i Sport Wagon. It's not a fast car and I don't have the desire or funding to make it fast. All I want to do is make it sound a little less like a minivan and a little more like a sports car. I have already fitted a K&N cone filter directly to the intake in...

    I have a 2002 325i and I decided to install new speakers a few months ago. I went with the infinity 6032ci speakers because I saw that they were recommended multiple times as I was researching online. I bought brackets off of crutchfield.com and the speakers fit pretty well. I dont know why but...

    Hi guys, Couple of questions with my current head unit. Firstly I'm looking at purchasing an AUX cable if possible for this headunit. is it possible at all? Second, if above cannot work will a 16:9 headunit of a later year just be a plug and play or will they not fit the 01 adapters...

    Hi, I'm thinking on updating current HK setup in my touring. I don't have money for hi end, but need something much nicer than HK - I was totally disappointed with its sound quality. The other requyerment is not to lose factory look until it's completely necessary for my needs. As for now I...

    Hey guys, I have a 2001 e46 with 150,000 miles. For a few months I've had this screeching sound coming from under the hood. At first the sound would be intermittent for about two minutes and then go away. The weird thing is that sometimes the sound would happen and then other days it wouldn't...

    Video below. From what I've read (great guide on noises btw!), seems like a pulley? Just wanted confirmation that it is in fact safe(ish) to drive until I can swap out the pulleys. Youtube link here Also, you might notice a ticking sound in the video as well. I'm hoping it's just my spark...
