About a week ago my 328 started making metallic popping noises during turning. This usually happens between 20-40 mph with the wheel usually halfway turned.

I would usually do a forum search for this type of question, but i really wouldnt know what to search under.

Also, we had a two week freeze here in Dallas. The first day the temperature dropped below freezing my check engine light came on and hasnt changed, are these at all related?

well.. i sorta understand what your saying... but, i don't know if this will help

i had a problem when i turned.. and i heard a metal grinding sound from my back wheels.. so i got it checked out.. and it ends up being that my emergency brake ended up rotting.. and a few pieces fell into the rotor.. so i took a air compressor and shot some air through the rotor and the sounds went away!! but now i have no e-brake.. but thats ok.. b/c my car is auto! hope this helps!!

Could be ball joints, maybe rear shock mounts, or your diff is screwed.

Where is the sound coming from? front or back? any specific side? at what speeds does this occur?

my car's doing the same thing i think in the back. like a clicking metal sounds at those speeds. sounds horrible. like the wheels gunna fall off but all the lugs are torqued right. i do however, have my stock 15" wheels on back rite now with 205 shit rubber cuz i blew out one of my tires on my 17" breyton's. it only happens with these rims. maybe its my ebrake, cuz its coming from the driver side, and my e brake only catches on that wheel

does the noise increase / get faster as you go faster? Does it not do it at higher speeds only because you can not hear it?

CV joint is easy to inspect - make sure of that - just look for torn rubber boots. Wheel bearing might be harder to inspect, but you can take the caliper off and turn the axle - should be smooth / silent.

how many miles do you have on the car?
