My Ride: 02 Vert
New to me...02 M

OK.. so I've been out of the M game for a few. Been dabbiling in a Benz or 2, Porsche and some good ol American cars. But found my way back to my first love. Still have my 88 M3 in my garage and wouldn't even dream of sellin' but I recently impuse bought a 02 M3 vert. I don't know much about the E46 platform but let me say she has a little better attitude than my Porsche. She pulls a little better but the corners go to the Porsche for me. That being said, I was wondering about a few different noises in the rear of the car. I bought it with Bilstien coils and there was major noise back there when I bought it. I changed the usual culprits, the shock mounts and it was less noisy. But as my tavels continue I hear a noise just as pronounced as before the repair. It's not as often but just as loud. It's coming from the drivers side rear. What else should I be looking for? And what bushings should be changed to get her riding like new again? By the way it has 90,000 miles on her. Thanks for any input.
