General Questions about my E46

Just wanted to know if there was a chat room, or someone I could message to ask some questions about my E46's. I have a lot to ask, and would rather do it in IM or PM

Thanks ^.^

Thanks! I just didn't know if forums were still being used this often. Is there a specific way to tell which year and model my E46 is? I believe it's an 05 330i. but I'm not 100% sure.

Go to RealOEM.com. Type in the last 7 characters of you VIN number into the Serial No. input field and click the Search button next to it. The program will find your vehicle variants and display them on the screen for you. You should make a note of them.

This link will tell you everything you ever wanted to know, even the 'birth date'.

Fjoj will have nearly any answer you need. However, most people are very helpful very quickly and you can usually find someone who has had a similar issue. Those of us who have our cars now running tip top basically now come on here to help others because people helped us.

Just don't ask about oil......

Use Google also, and add the term "E46" and you will find tons of info.

Open your driver door and look for a black sticker on the lower portion of the B pillar, this sticker/label will give you the VIN and the production date of your car. It will have a month and year showing among other things
