Man, I hate unidentified random noises. Something is "resonating" with the low rpm vibrations. Unfortunately I would have no idea what. You need to get a budy with good hearing to stand outside and...

Drive it hard for 5 minutes :)

The ticking is harmless, the only true fix is a different head altogether, a new design that BMW introduced to stop said sound. Just rev it up!

2 questions:

1) Must you have a torque wrench to do the job or can you tighten by feel alone?

2) I never hear anyone talking about replacing the rear control arms. Do those bushings last a lot...

You will need two set of spacers (one for the front, and one for the rear) and 20 longer bolts. Google BMW spacers and you'll see who is selling them. Spacers should not be a big deal, the ones on...

You're going to need spacers. The F30 has a wheel offset of 34 if I am not mistaken. So you'd need 15mm spacers to get close to OEM fitment.

Good find gohornedfrogs!! can we compile a list of wheel models that are perfect replicas of bmw wheels? I think we can exclude the CSL type wheels because they are so easy to find.

Steering column rattle

My understanding is that the ticking is harmless, and that driving the card hard for a little while will eliminate the sound; all it needs is for the oil to warm up.
