In Reply to: Re: Rattling/Hissing noise b/t shifts..pls help (l posted by MikeC on June 13, 2000 at 17:45:28:

: Mine does, too. The first time I mentioned it the dealer said "they all do that". The second time I went for a ride with the service manager, who took it seriously and kept the car in for service. The resulting diagnosis: they all do that. I then asked an independent BMW shop about it; he said it was related to the exhaust system, was not unusual, not to worry about it,k and that he would pursue it the next time I brought the car in for service. Hope this helps. Please let me know if you find out any more about this.

: 95 M3
: : My 95 (out of warranty) makes a rattling/hissing noise between shifts (above 2500 rpms..not below) and during enging braking (again above 2500 rpms).

: : I had my cats replaced under warranty last summer which quieted the problem but it's back.

: : I'm thinking that it could also be my exhaust which is an aftermarket stainless steel that the previous owner put on 3 years ago.

: : Does anyone suggest replacing the exhaust to see what happens? Replace the cats again?

: : Thanks for any and all help!

: : cheers
