Bought a 325ci a few months back and there's been a tinkle type rattle (sounds like coins jingling) every time I drive over a bump. Any thoughts from the forum?

Hi Steve...never been in a wreck (its mint) and a 2002 model. The weird thing is that whenever I drive the car in the wet (even slightly wet roads), the tinckling sound disappears. It sounds like two fine metalllic washers rattling together. More noticeable whenever I drive over road cats-eyes.

+1. When was the last time suspension work was done on the car. I just changed my sway bar links, they were finished due to age and corrosion. It was more of a metal on metal creaking noise when the wheel was turned either way due to the rusty links, but it made a similar noise going over bumps as well. If you have not had any work done on it, it would be a good ideal to look into CABS, Sway bar links and the Tie rods.
