when the car, 98 328is, starts moving there's a thumping noise that i hear. at a slow roll, i can hear it. and the faster i go, the faster the thumping. i'm assuming it has something to do with the wheels, hub maybe? except going backwards doesn't produce the same noise. any help is appreciated.

catalyst. is an unknown quantity at this point
Send a message via AIM to catalyst.
i drove an m3 that did that... its SO annoying.

btw- that m3 dint do it when different wheels were on it so im guessing it was an issue with the rims/tires. most likely the rims.
