Ive had my 93' 318i for a few months now and i love how it drives and its extremely comfortable, but theres a few noises i get here and there that are puzzling/bugging me.
When im travelling and accelerating the car, the increase in noise is accompanied by an increasing ticking noise, which gets louder/faster as i rev the car higher, is this a common noise? ive got 86k miles on my car and its the 1st BMW ive had so i know not whether the noise is around alot and whether its anything to worry about. Is it noisey tappets or something else? and can anything be done? (its definatly from the engine, ive had the hood up + listened) it doesnt seem to be affecting the performance of the car to my knowledge, its just an annoyance really
Also when traveling at speed, 60mph+ sometimes i get a weird buzzing noise coming from my instrument pod, it almost sounds like the noise when you leave your lights on, but its constant, not the BZZ BZZ BZZ tempo, but more a constant drone noise, this then decreases if i stop accelerating, and stops all together if i put the clutch in and disengage the accelerator. This one im totaly lost on if anyones got any information.... it only happens when traveling at 60mph + which is odd to me.
if anyone can offer any advice it would be appreciated greatly.
