My Ride: 2003 BMW M3
New Buy, few questions!

Hey everyone, I just recently purchased a 2003 M3, I do have a "clunk" that appears every time I switch gears or get on the gas harder, and it is coming from the rear. Is it pretty obvious that it is the Differential bushing? I heard that it's pretty common for these queens to let that one go.

Another question is about the Navi, When I bought the car a few weeks ago it was fine. Now however it still operates perfectly fine, just last week a small half inch sized vertical line appeared in the upper right kind of, and now it's been spreading a little bit, not a crack, but more inside of the screen, has anyone had that happen? And What could it possibly be?

And my last question is about the headlights. Just before this M3 I owned a 2001 330ci. (another great car) ANd it had the same problem. THe headlights would sometimes not turn on, either both or the left or the right. Then I have to toggle the switch a few times before one or both of them finally turn on. They stay on the whole time when the car is running then, but it's just the initial turn on. WIth 330ci used to happen more during night time, or when it was colder. The m3 now does it just whenever really. SO I'm curious if that would be the Ballast, or the igniter, I have looked up the questions before, just never got a clear answer.

Any input would be helpful, so thanks.

By the way, this is my new baby:
