My Ride: e46 323i
Angry Hello, can I come in please???

Hello everyone, the names Adi, bit of a serial BMW owner of late. (E28 525i, E49 540i, and now E46 323I).

Had the 323i now for a few months, and although she is outwardly mint and only one owner prior to me, I am not happy with the way she drives. The front wheels shake like a sh$*%(ng dog on anything other than perfect tarmac and I have little confidence when throwing the car into corners. She has had all bushes, new steering rack and wishbones to try and solve the problem and is about to go in for new front shocks. The tyres are very good (Uniroyal up front and Avons on rear). Can anyone shed some light on the matter before I go mad and bankrupt please. Apart from the Beemers I have owned, I also drive them at speed every day as part of work, and I have never experienced this problem before........Help

any noises or other indicators that might help?

try a search for wheel shake or front vibration, there's a lot of possible causes..
