1. Has anyone expereinced terriable squeeling noises ( almost like running your finger nails over the chalk board) after it has rained , when putting the windows up and down? and if so... what have u done to remedy this?

Allow it to dry out. It's caused by water trapped between the window and rubber gasket along the side of the doors. You can actually wipe it out but I figure I don't have to roll down my windows when it rains.

: 2. At 60 MPH ....when the brakes are lightly pressed, the steering will vibrates back and forth....what could that be roters at 700 miles?? suggestions....

It happened on my previous car (99 323i) but I haven't notice this vibration on my y2k 323ci yet.

: 3. The small rings that surround the tweeters in the back are not a sloid ring...and while detailing my car, i happed to snap the plastic in half... it appears to me to be a design flaw any one could get snagged on those and rip the ring off...are other 323 designed the same way? and what should i glue the thing back on or get a new one?? has anyone else had any of these problems??

I would just take it to dealer

Hope this helps.

y2k 323ci sport.
