    I’ve been going in circles trying to figure out why I’m getting a driveline vibration on my 2002 325i wagon. The vibration appeared after I did some maintenance on the car and now can’t seem to figure out if something was installed incorrectly or if I’ve got a run of bad parts. Here’s what I’ve...

    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...

    Hello, I've got a 2005 325XI and about 1 month ago I noticed a slight vibration at the floor base of my car when I pressed the acceleration pedal after I've come off the highway driving of 30mins or so. I didn't think much of it then but now lately the vibration is sometimes present when i...

    Hello everyone, I have an issue with my 2005 e46 320i, and would like some help with what might be causing it. As the title reads, the car starts vibrating when I accelerate at over 70mph. The vibration stops as soon as I let go off the throttle, but if I lightly tap it, the vibration starts...

    Have started to notice a low frequency vibration that I can hear more so than feel, MOST prevalent at 75mph to about 80mph. It's extremely noticeable on smooth road, but pretty noticeable as long as it's not an awfully paved road. I've replaced the entire driveshaft, flex disc, CSB a little...

    Greetings from an E46 newbie.... I just bought a 2001 325Ci convertible and feel like I should have done my homework better cause I'm experiencing a sudden shudder that I didn't notice when test driving. Doh. Now I have a maddening shudder through the drivetrain for a split second when coasting...

    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...

    I have a 2001 330xi and lately I've noticed that when ever I get over 70 mph I'm getting a really bad vibration on the front right of the vehicle. I had it up on the rack a couple of days ago and took some pictures and somebody told me they thought the "CV Axle boot is ripped on the front inner"...

    Searched around a few different sites and forums, but haven't found an exact replica of my issue. Based on what I have found though, I know that it will be difficult to self diagnose the issue, So I want to get a list of potential issues to bring to my mechanic for investigation. During...

    Bought a new e46 330i and having some shudder on the highway as well as a tiny bit of slop in my steering before it kicks in. Guy I bought it from said he had already replaced the FCABs and I don't have any shudder when breaking (any more than usual), so I was hoping to have it looked at by...

The following things has been replaced: oil in transmission, oil in rear diff, the whole CCV system, spark plugs, the DISA valve...

    Hi all, Another important question from me trying to get my XI ride smooth again. And this is something that I have on my mind for a while and talked with several mechanics about, but that was inconclusive, for some reason it only came to my mind now to ask you guys. This is part of me trying...

    I replaced my clutch about 2 weeks ago. I detailed tips I thought worth sharing in a post to the thread Phildo's Clutch/Flywheel Tracker on this forum. I'm posting now because after the job I had added noise and vibration. My tires were pretty worn before the job, so although I had extra...

    So I've had some vibration in the front end/steering for some time now. I noticed it after this past winter. More about the vibration before control arm install: Jiggle in the steering wheel back and forth at low speeds but stayed somewhat centered. At high speeds between 40-50 and 55-75...

    My car drives fine under normal driving; however, during spirited driving and cornering fast will cause a violent vibration/wheel hop whenever the car understeers (the understeer itself is generally caused by my poor driving skills :banghead:). This happens for both left and right turns. Also...

The car was recently purchased at 240k miles, only repairs the owner spoke of were a very recent fuel pump and filter replacement. He also gave us maintainence records and there...
