Thanks guys.

Unfortunately, a couple issues started this evening. Aaaaaand here we go. lol I now have this exact sound in my engine bay:

There seems to be a crack somewhere in the windshield wiper fluid reservoir. I decided to fill it up about 3/4 of the way (it was less than 1/2 before) and the fluid just came right out of the bottom of the car very quickly.

Lastly, I also noticed power steering fluid leaking from the engine bay reservoir. I'll take off the cap tomorrow and see if the fluid is moving around.

There are a couple reputable BWM mechanic shops in my general area, so I'll be taking her in sometime this week.

I spent around $200 already for small replacement parts, air filter, rear license plate bracket, l.e.d. taillights, etc. but I'm going to hold-off on buying anything else for now. The last thing I need is for this to turn into a money pit.
