I'm pretty much new member here, but i have been wandering there for a while, because i really like cars and especially BMWs of course. And since I bought my first car recently, I decided to join forums.
My car is 1993 BMW E36 320i Coupe. It's not perfect, as it usually is with first cars, but is working and i love it and i would like to work on it a bit, learn some things etc... As i said, it has some flaws, and with one of them i would like to ask you for some help. The problem is that the engine makes weird electric like noise, and it can be heard especially when its idling, you basically hear only that, not the engine itself. When i drive, it's less noticeable, since you hear the engine or exhaust. I have some tips what it could be from the internet, but im not really sure. I recorded it and put it on YT, if it helps, here's the link:
