I don't think I've ever seen a FWD BMW.

Yep. If they have the "i" nomenclature it means standard drivetrain which would be RWD and "xi" usually stands for xDrive which is BMW's AWD system.

Nope. The only FWD BMW I can think of is the Mini since BMW owns the rights, but the Mini has been FWD ever since it was created and when it was still British.

But yeah, both BMW and Mercedes have always made RWD and more recently AWD cars. The Germans make cars the proper way. FWD is only for cheap cost cutting companies.

Any place that can work on a Renesis can work on a rotary motor. The only thing they changed were port sizes and emissions systems. If I wanted to use the rotors from the RX8 in my 2nd Gen motor they would fit in the engine (compression ratio is way to high for my setup though). Incredibly simple engines to work on if your doing the work yourself. I will concede gas mileage is something to be desired however .

Buy a BMW with xDrive. BMW equipped the 3 series with xDrive since 2006 and the X series almost since it was introduced.

See if it does the same thing when you use the readio or something. If it doesnt, then new cable. If it does, sounds like a loose speaker wire. A blown speaker would probably just be really crackly.

Then check the speaker wires. How many speakers do you have total? If its 4, and 2 are out, then I would check where they are plugged into the Head Unit. If 1 of 4 is out, then check by that speaker. If 1 of 2 is out, then check both spots, and all cables in between. Might need a new head unit...

Prob speakers. My roommate had a contour and all of them but one died. You can take your doors apart and move them around and see which ones work or if it's faulty wiring.
