hey everyone
i just signed up cause i bought a 93 318is and it has a few bugs that i would like to ask u guys about.
i got it cheap and it has 95 000 on it which is good iam guessing for a 93.

when i floor it and drive hard it tends to shake in the throttle with a slight bumping noise either right under the shifter or in the rear, i know this is a problem dumb question but i fiqured i give it a shot, but basically when i get on the gas hard it will shake under my hand or in the rear in whatever gear iam gunning it in.

if anyone has any ideas i would really appreciate the help, thanks

here is a few pics

Have someone go under the car and see if the guibo aka flex disc is craking or is broken. My 318 did the same thing for about a week than it got worse fix the problem now before it gets worse. Its like a $50 part if thats the problem, which I it most likely is if it hasn't been changed before.

yea, most likely it is the guibo.. you might want to have the center support bearing looked at as well. I was reading that this often causes a "thud"

Either way, you have to admit that cars sick...it would even look good parked (as long as you keep it clean).

have some one check out your tranny mounts... If one of them is lose, similar symptoms may occur. Also if you just bought it, have some one go over it for you... honestly it is a good Idea to do before you buy the car. But a 93 with 95k on it is actually a great find.

So what was the problem with your car? What did they do to fix it?
