What year is your car? I had something similiar happen to me in my 99'. I would hear a sound like you described going over bumps. The sound could also be heard when you first take off from a dead top going forward or backward.

I limped it to the dealer and later found out a differential bolt had broken. I asked about it on this board and I think several people with 98-99 cars responded having had a similar problem.

Well that's my experience.

Tonight when my car was over speed bumps (in parking lot at quite low speed), I heard some strange noise that seem to come from front wheels (or from where my left foot is). It sounded a bit like metal hitting each other though a bit muffled. I've heard alot of worn rear shock mount complains for M3s. Could this be a worn front shock mount??

(Never heard of the noise from worn shock mounts, so I could only guess.)

I also got x-brace on... could it also be a lose x-brace?
