my 318is and my friends both had a little clunking noise when we would go over bumps.

I dont know if M3's have this, but our steering shafts were made of two parts (one part splined, inside a cylinder) and had a sleeve or ring at the joint that had to be tightned up to remove the clunking noise. (dont tighten too much though)

like i said, i'm not sure if the M3's have this particular tightening sleeve though.
