    Hello! I am extremely frustrated with my car and would love to hear suggestions from anybody on the forum. I posted a similar thread on bimmerforums.com a while back, and while I got many helpful responses, I have not been able to fix this problem. Maybe a bright mind from here can help me...

    Afternoon, Im having some issues with my E46 330ci. The steering wheel shakes/wobbles/jerks over bumps and imperfections in the road which makes for an interesting ride. Another trait is when mounting the kerb the steering wheel will jolt even when on full lock. Feels like it goes past full...

    Hi all. When hitting bumps at a high speed my rear tyres clip and rub the arches in my E92 330D. Currently the car has been lowered on new H&R springs which drop the rear by 25mm. I also had new LUK shocks installed at the same time, with the rest of the suspension setup being stock. I've had...

    I ahve noticed over the last cuple of months a noise that sounds like a loose heat shield when going over speed bumps, potholes etc. I thought at first it was a exhaust heat shield, no joy then maybe thought the dpf had started to break up and come loose, no joy. Finally traced it yesterday to...

    Hi guys, so I bought an m sport 330i 2008 from a dealer back in December and it's recently started making squeaking noises from the rear of the car when going over humps, sounds like a problem with the suspension. Its just under warranty and the dealer said it was the rear pads so they had them...

    Hi all. As above really, I've done searches and came up with loads of results, but nothing matching these symptoms exactly. I've a late 2002 330d M Sport 184 Bhp. Mapped a few years ago, and drives fine (I've not had it all that long). Its high mileage at 222k, which again doesn't worry me at...

    Hi all, i have as mentioned in the title i have an e46 330i tourer. The car has covered 127k Miles and has minimal work on what has been done. Essentially when going over bumps/ pot holes there is a direct thudding shaking up the steering collum, the front end on a whole feels very loose and...

    It was fine but today it's not. It won't close so sits almost closed and flaps open when I go over a bump. The remote opening and the soft closing all do nothing now. Likewise the button in the car and the key lock button on the boot itself. Nothing works! It was ok on Saturday. on Sunday I...

    hello folks ok just bought a 2002 320d, a few niggles to say the least the main one is the gear lever which shakes or vibrates when driving over bumps, also it shakes slightly when idling. Im also getting a clunking noise, this can be felt through the centre of body of the car, but this is...

    I have just moved to London and have noticed how much bigger the speed bumps are here :eek It scrapes the bottom of my car. I have Eibach springs with a 30mm drop front and 15mm back. My rear eibach spring has just snapped so now forced to either go stock or coilovers. Would JOM coilovers...

    Think something to do with the suspension at the rear is gone. Bumps or anything on the road I'm getting a rattling noise, not a clunking noise, from the rear under the car. Will my 2002 330d have common things that go just to give me an idea of what it might be ?

    Hi My recently bought E90 has 100k on it and I love it but it has a couple of niggles. 1) There is a fairly noticeable clunk/thump web going over speed bumps. Only happens when I'm going over at higher speeds. Obviously I don't go over them fast but sometimes when in second gear it does it...

    hey people, as per title really, I have new wishbones and got polybushed lollipops so I know it's not them, I know the TRE's aint so good so could be that, but if not what else could be causing it? I'm also getting steering vibrations anywhere above about 55mph, I have coilovers and 30mm...

    I've noticed a hollow clunk coming from the rear left of the car - in the boot - when going over bumps. It's louder with the rear seats down. Sometimes it happens when I turn out of my road (no bumps) but then it's the same sound but more of a long resonance than a single clunk. I thought it...

    Following recent installation of 4 Eibach springs and 2 new lower front control arms, i now have a clunk when i go over any bumps in the road. On smooth roads I have a lovely smooth ride. Any ideas?
