Thumbs up

i was looking forward to buying a set of 2002 m3 rims for my 93' 325i. like all u bmw lovers know they are 18x8 on front and 18x9 on rear.are they ganna rub on either front or rear?if it depends on tire then what size tire can i put on to avoid rubbing.i'm very reluctant to roll over the bumber or perform any type of modification.please say i can fit those guns on my car without any need for modification.in fact i was ganna buy the rims on ebay.below is a link to the page.please let me know. ghead
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...TRK%3AMEDW%3AIT

oh and also my left rear speaker doesn't work at all. in addition to that every once in a while while i'm driving the speakers start going out one by one.all of a sudden the front sound system dies and there goes the only rear speaker too.is something wrong with my amplifier in the trunk or what the fcuk is going on?i haven't added any sound system or anything its the original factory installed system.so if you could advise me on that matter as well i'll be grateful. ghead

and finally the issure of the growling right underneath my handbreake area.everytime i start driving my car in the range of slow speed like 10 or 15 mph i get this growling and vibrating effect right under my shift and handbreak area.it growls until i gain speed and then it comes back if i stop and start over again.oh and i noticed when i parked my car in some steep driveway and put it in park position that growling started and stayed.my car was running idle but the growling persisted.i don'[t know if it's the exhaust system or something else.if someone knows any solution please reply i'd appreciate it. ghead

thanks a lot

You need 4 fronts , The only thing those can go on would be an ///M Z3 or X5 , The offset is too low for the back with that wdth.

it could be your guibo disk starting to go, or could be the tranny mounts

hard to say without you under the car checking it all out.

tranny mounts hold your tranny in place. lik a engine mount.

basically the guibo disk is the flex disk that connects the driveshaft to the transmission. its made of a hardened rubber that has fine rope braids in it to strenthen it.. it helps prevent too much vibration down the driveshaft.. when it wears you start to get a rubbling sound that seems like its under ass. when it wears more it seems like you have a flat tire in the rear.....

when tranny mounts go, they act much like when motor mounts act.. when the transmission is in use and it makes a movement, it can make noise because the mounts are shot or arent seated properly.


both are located under the middle of the car, hidden above the exhaust ( if i remember right its around the catylitic converter.)

when ur tranny mounts go, the shifter tends to move the tranny soem, making it harder to put into gear

When I bought my car the previous owner had done a hackjob wiring on the speaker setup. Pull the headunit, and look for any cut or loose wires.

already done that.no weird wiring or anything.everything looks just fine.weirdly enought though it takes a bump aloong the way to send the whole sound system into mute.and then it kicks back in after a while or in the next bump.

Hmm. The most likely cluprit then is the HU itself. Age may have caught up with it.
