  1. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Went to look at a 1998 E46 auto today, engine sounded fine and autobox was smooth, there was a mild hiss / turbine-like noise pulling away but no nasty clunks, however I could detect a constant rumbling noise. I popped the autbox into neutral going down a hill and there was no change coasting...

    Hi all, First time poster but long time lurker! I'm hoping someone might be able to give me some pointers on an irritating noise my 2006 E91 320d is making. It's on 60k miles and runs lovely from what I can tell. Good power and 50+ mpg. Problem is there's a deep almost rythmic rumble/drone...

    Hi, My E91 suffers from a rumble under light acceleration at 90+ mph (Yeah, I live close to the Autobahns). If I let off the throttle, the rumble disappears - so its not tire balance. It's not bearing noise. It's a very deep rumble. It's the same on both my winter and summer wheels. My...

    Hi All. So I have literally done 20 miles in my new 530d well 58 plate. The handbrake was terrible so adjusted at the rear, however it's still not good. Now I realise I only have 5 notches the rest have worn away. Just wondered if anyone has changed the lever before and where to get one etc...

    Hi all, wondering if you can advise. I have the 2002 520i auto, with the steptronic gearbox. Lovely car, only 52,000 miles on the clock. Ignition coils were replaced in 2007, probably under warranty, as they are stamped as BMW. New spark plugs about a week ago, and new engine oil. Engine...

    Hello, I've been driving my car, BMW 320d estate, in this defective condition for about 5000 km now (vehicle miles traveled - 250000), and the problem is the rumbling noise the clutch produces when depressing the pedal down to floor. It gives this rumbling and rattling sounds right before the...

    picked up a 645 today and when pulling off, it makes a horrible rumble / clunking that you can feel as well as hear. if you pull off really gently it doesn't do it, and above a certain speed (haven't figured out what but say 10/15mph) it disappears. its not gear / revs dependent. it feels...

    Hi all, when accelerating at around 2000rpm it spikes up to 2800rpm ish then drops back down. There is also a rumble at low revs. This is making me think that the clutch is slipping and the dual mass flywheel is possibly damaged. Ive only had the car for a month so it could have been doing this...
