  1. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hello everyone, I have a 2004 320d touring and I'm getting a ticking kind of noise from the engine when accelerating in first and second gears, perhaps even third but if there is ticking it's nearly inaudible. This only happens at around 2000 rpm to around 3000 rpm. Additionally my car seems to...

    I have recently purchased a 318ci for the summer and enjoying it at the moment (apart from the oil leaks!). However it has an annoying noise when you move off in first or reverse just as the clutch engages. It’s a sort of rattle/knocking. Lasts about 1-2 seconds then goes away until the next...

    Hey guys I'm having a "power cut" issue in my 2000 323i. When clutch kicking in any gear other than first, the power (revs) seems to just shut down. For example when in 2nd year, if I rev it to 5-6k with the clutch in then lift the clutch (clutch kick) the revs drop 3k and I can't seem to...

    Hi, I came here last when I might have been looking at losing the company car, well it has happened, 116d has now gone. So I'm in the market for a car, main choices were Audi, Merc or BMW. As I'm a BMW fan that is the option. With regards to model, I still like the 3 series. One of the key...

    Hi everyone, I used to have a 1998 325i coupé which I absolutely loved, but it guzzled petrol around town like a thirsty tramp. I then got an MR2 T-bar, which was fun to drive, but the build quality by comparison made it a not very nice place to be sat everything just felt a bit plastic-y. So...
