Well I just got my bimmer back from getting a new trannie on thursday. I'm driving to work today. As I'm crossing the bridge into harrisburg I hear a loud click come from the pasanger side rear tire every time I hit a bump. everying is fine the rest of the way till I get off at my exit. When I leave the light a loud intermitent click is steadily coming from that area. I thought maybe it was something just hitting the tire but I took the tire off and gave it a look and I see nothing. I Ended up having it towed home. If it's not something that maybe he didn't tighten down properly and broke loose I might consider getting rid of the car. ghead

The bad thing is I just read bimmer magazine and it said that a black 325ix 2 door 5 speed is the hardest one to get and the one that people who want one search for. So that makes me wanna put some more cash into it. I like the fact that it's a rare model.

If you guys were in my shoes what would you do?

it prolly needs a rear axle, what you are describing sounds like an axle. what kind of pads do you have in the rear? i have found that sometimes when people buy cheapo brake pads sometimes they dont sit exactly right and move around causing a click

I would definetly keep the car. If you get these problems out of the way now, you will enjoy the car that much more down the line. The E30 325ix is a collector's item...if you got rid of it, you would be very sorry.
