    Hi all,

    I'm getting a knocking noise coming from the back nearside. I havent had a close look yet thats why i'm here to see if anyone else has had this on their e46?

    Couldn't really think what the knocking was until remembering changing the rear shock mounts on my e36 5 years ago...

    Just wondering if it is a common fault on the e46's too and if it is, why the hell haven't BMW solved this???

    Are there any uprated mounts available? I have heard of people using M3 ones
