    I have this very strange vibration in my car, which can be felt beneath the front seats, and sounds like it is coming from the driveshaft-area beneath the car. The vibration is only felt when giving some throttle. In other words, it is only appearent during load. It starts at around...

    My 2003 330xi vibrates like crazy when applied pressure(accelerating). The vibration can be avoided by accelerating smooth, but it takes some fun from the car. The vibration is defenitly coming from beneth the car. I tried replacing the Center Support Bearing(CSB), with no luck. What to do...

    Hey guys, first post ever here as i've just purchased a 2000 318i automatic sedan (m43b19). Hoping this post will be helpful to some of the 4cyl peeps. i've had super rough vibrations when stopped in gear, both D and R, and it gets worse with the AC on. When i give it some gas and move off, its...

    Hello, i own an e46 320cd 2005 and i've got an issue which bothers me a lot and can't find a solution to it. It has a vibration at 2.5k rpm in 3rd gear or 4k+ in 2nd gear, only these 2. The parts i've replaced so far are: -transmission mounts. -guibo. -All the rear bushings. -middle shaft...

    Just wanted to see if anyone has any input or suggestions on what my vibration could be. I have a 2003 330i 5 Speed ZF. The car would vibrate a pretty decent amount around 60-65 miles and hour. Anything over and under that, it would completely go away. I recently just did a HUGE once over on...

    So I had a slight vibration at 75-80 mph. Nothing serious but figured it was csb and giubo since I’ve never done either. 2004 330i with 169k miles on it. Csb rubber was dry rotted and giubo was cracking but nothing in horrible condition. So I ended up doing front control arm bushings, csb, and...

    This topic has been discussed elsewhere but the threads die with no resolution. Perhaps we can solve this once and for all!? Horrendous vibration at start and gets worse as the idle comes down to a tick over 500. Gets worse in reverse or drive with foot on the brake and car stopped. Seems to be...

    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...

    I am currently trying to sort out all of my drivetrain vibrations in my project 325iT. I am looking for suggestions on where to start in terms of what to replace and what to look out for. My first issue is some substantial vibration with the car in gear, it vibrates significantly and even...

    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...

    Oh great BMW gurus, grant me your wisdom and guide me to a diagnosis. The required incantation out of the way, onto my problem. I have a 2002 330XI with a manual transmission and 235,000 miles. This car is my baby and daily driver, and I try very hard to keep up on the maintenance. A month...

    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...
