    Hi All, Just picked up my new car on Friday, and loving it so far. It’s covered just over 52k miles. I am a big BMW fan, this one being my 6th. My most recent previous car was a 2003 E46 330Ci Vert which I kept for 5 1/2 years. Not got any major plans for the car yet, I’m not a huge modder...

    Hello I have some annoying problem with my bimmer. This is N42B20 engine with automatic gearbox (steptronic). There is some strange ringing noise which I can hear only inside the cabin around 1500rpm. It doesn't matter if the car is moving, parked, engine cold or hot. The noise appeared after...

    Hi all, Few seconds after I start the engine I hear a metallic click coming from the engine (driver's side). I can hear it better from the driver's side wheel but for sure it does not come from the wheel. It's perceptible at idle, but I'm pretty sure it doesn't go away when driving the car...

    Gents/Ladies Unfortunately I have had to admit defeat and put this issue up. As the title says; I have a metallic rattle coming from the rear of the car, only when I hit bumps. Originally I thought it was the brake pads as the pad that clips into the calliper piston was loose. However...

  17. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    Hi, I've just noticed when my 105k 328i is idling, when the car drops revs like the fan is cutting in, I hear a clunk. It's coming from the front of the engine, possibly fan area or washer bottle side. It's not a metallic noise, more plastic if that makes sense. Any ideas? I'm just about to...
  18. BMW Detailing, Bodywork and Styling forum
    As per the thread title really - I'm just curious as to how many E46 coupes are around in the same colour as mine. I stupidly bent my passenger door, it's creased quite badly around the reinforcement bars built in to the door. I've been trying to source a replacement door in the right colour...
