    I had a little blow out on my exhaust and I brought it to my local mechanic who has informed me that it was my flexi part of my down pipe, he quoted me £500 to fix it.

  9. 2001 320d Touring flexi pipe?

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    I've got that smell of fumes in the cabin when sitting at lights with the fan on, and a funny noise that gets worse when under load around 1500-2000rpm but goes away when lifting off. Sounds like and induction or exhaust noise. I'm pretty sure the two are related and I've just got a blowing...

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    I think the exhaust flexi pipe is leaking. I'm getting a knocking noise when I turn the engine off and I can sometimes smell fumes in the car. Has anyone had any experience with clamp-on replacement sections like this, as opposed to welding a new section in? It's the 136bhp engine if that makes...
