The knocking noise could be one of several things. The wheel bearing, a worn steering or suspension part, or road debris could be causing the noise.

Knocking noise over front tire at low speeds?

I had a problem similar to this in my '93. I took the wheel off, and looked at the shield on the engine side of the brake rotor. Turns out, it had gotten bent and was rubbing against the brake rotor and sounded like it was knocking at low speeds. Just get some needle noise pliers, a rag, and a hammer, and gently try and bend the shield back. Use the rag under the hammer so you don't dent up the shield.

What will cause your 1991 325ic BMW to make loud acceleration noises?

it depends on what kind of loud noise, a knocking noise, a grinding noise, a chatter. if you can tell me what kind of noise i can help if your car is a manual transmisison and the noise you are talking about is a "growl" when under load then it is most likely worn bearings on the input shaft to the transmision. Well if the loud noise in only during acceleration, and has no noticeable effect on the cars driving, then it is most likely a hole in your exhaust. I have a 91 325ic and It had a loud accelerating noise, but when i plugged the hole and the harsh noise ceased. There are plenty of ways to plug holes for free just find one and try it and if it works..great!

This could be a bad strut or ball joint. If the noise is constant when you drive this is probably the cause. If the noise only happens when you hit a bigger bump/pothole I would check your motor mounts, this was the cause on my thunderbird.
