    So I recently bought an E46 330ci rather cheap couldn’t pass it up. Long story short been going over a few things that need to be replaced but there’s one noise I can’t get my head around. I have 2 videos here showing the sound. Any advice as to what it might be will be very appreciated! Thanks
