    Not sure if this applies on E46

    On E36, the most common cause of this is a differential bolt that keeps the diff from rotating about the axis of the rear wheels. Looking along the drive shaft, it is on the lower left - again, this is on E36, but I'd guess there is a similar setup for E46.
    Have you noticed a bit of a clunk during take-off before the bigger noise you hear now? bolt loosens, then falls out or breaks on E36s. Not a bad fix but you have to order the bolt.
    Let us know what you find.

    Have you checked the Guibo for excessive wear?

    ^^This is a legit question^^

    First time someone asked me this I figured they were making stuff up. This being April 1st and all I, thought that I would second the question.

    This part is one of the connection points, and on earlier M3's was prone to failure.
