    Hi everyone just got my 1st bmw

    e36 318is coupe in white



    Plans:

    -Picked up some 15" bbs last night for free (theyre going black)
    -coilovers
    -clear indicators
    -hid's

    and sort the couple of problems ive got that some of you might be able to help with?

    problems ive got :
    -squeek on startup? thinking its only the aux belt as its cold
    -ticking/knocking when driving along - does it in and out of gear and at any revs.. sounds like prop?
    -slight gap on drivers side window causing air whistling? can they be adjusted?

    Anyways cheers for looking and any help i get oh and merry xmas eve!

    Hi James 2010,Welcome to Bimmerforums.co.uk.........

    I like white E36's

    The knocking could be the rubber Guibo which connects the prop to the gearbox,worth having a look
