View Full Version : Squeaks, rattles and chirps

09-20-2011, 06:36 AM
I'm trying to find a shop that specializes in addressing squeaks, rattles and chirps. I have a '99 328i, with 93,000 miles on it, that is in great condition, other than the amazing array of sounds it generates. So far, no shop has been able to help -- including an excellent BMW specialty shop.

I'd appreciate any referrals.

Hello I recommend Collision Craft in Baltimore. The owner Jeff Shaw is a BMW CCA Member with a beautiful E24 M6. He just did a fabulous job on my 01 M3 with 83kmi with a bunch of wrong screws everywhere.

Feel free to mention me as a reference.

If you have fold down rear seats, start by putting some felt tape on the top of the plastic rim where the seats back in to. That's a huge source of E46 noise.

Thanks, guys.

I will contact Collision Craft.

The squeaks are driving me out of my mind.... It's tragic because I dumped a lot of money into the car this year. I'd love to get the problems resolved and keep the car on the road.

+1 Collison Craft in Baltimore.
Jeff Shaw and his team have delivered me high quality work within budget from terrific detailing to collision repair since 1999 on my BMW's and Mazdas.

+3 for Collision Craft. Not sure if he handles squeaks and rattles, but worth a try. I've had body work done there and have been very impressed.
