In-depth research and development work have been undertaken in order to eliminate gear noise and bodywork rattles. The different requirements were first of all defined and gathered together as specifications to reach an optimum solution. The solution has been found in the form of a twin mass flywheel. Numerous calculations, tests, controls and settings have made it possible to manufacture this flywheel in series for BMW cars; so far it has been fitted to the 324d, 524d, 325e and 525e models.
