Yeah, that's what I was talking about. I'm thinking the lower amount of power could have changed the way the car was shifting slightly. That's the only conclusion that seemed to make even a little...

So following the scan with the scan tool, there ended up being no codes stored for the car; engine nor transmission, and now that I'm back closer to sea level, everything seems to be back to normal,...

Cool, I'll have to scan it tomorrow; the family I'm visiting has a pretty fancy scan tool. It's not made for BMWs, but I'll give it a try tomorrow and see if anything comes up. I didn't think codes...

325Ci AT, rough shifting after a long drive?

What's up guys? I bought my '04 325Ci AT about 8 months ago, and as it sits, it currently has about 117k miles. So far, it hasn't given me any problems, though I've done quite a bit of preventative...

2004 325Ci Sport with 15mm Spacers! Before/After with pics!

What up fanatics?! I recently became disgusted with the fact that the rear wheels on my 325 were so sunken-in looking, being a non-staggered setup. I didn't find much on the subject of putting...

Just an update: I'm not worried about the shifting issue for the time being. I'm just going to drive the car with the transmission as-is, and see if it gets worse over time or not.
Thanks for the...

Alright. Either way, I ordered the filter kit today, along with another pump, as the first one I ordered was wrong, and a new Mahle fuel filter. The plan is to get down and dirty Monday after work!!

I meant to say that the sound happened when the car hesitated, at the last part. That's what makes me think it could be related. But I'll plan to do both asap.

Yeah, that wasn't it. The noise doesn't seem to be coming from the valve train or intake area, it almost seems to be bottom-end.

Since I have no idea what type of oil the car lot I bought the car from, used with their change, I'm going to get some oil and a filter and see what happens when I change it today.
