My Ride: 2000 330i
My manual 330i developed the thump at a 135000 miles and at 140000 the diff failed, a mess of oil under the car and metal on metal grinding. Dealer replaced diff (and bushes they say). At 150000 miles the thump has returned. Dealer now says it is the side drive shaft splines that are worn and need to replace both shafts for $1500. And then the main drive shaft may also have to be replaced... does not make sense to me??
