    Hello ! Not even 24h ago i bought a pretty well maintained 2002 330ci EURO. I had a 6 hour drive to home, and 5 hours in at 130km/h lights came on : EML, engine, TC, and yellow brake light. Still had control over the throttle, didn’t test for loss of power. Parked and shut it off and on, had...

    I am wondering if anybody knows what causes this noise? I got the video off YouTube but it sounds exactly like what I am experiencing. I hear it mainly when going uphill. Recently had it into a shop and was told my front end is all good but that is where I feel this is coming from... Recently...

    Hi all, I am reposting this as it seems my last post might have died with no real answers/directions. I am wondering if anybody knows what causes this noise? I got the video off YouTube but it sounds exactly like what I am experiencing. Recently had it into a shop and was told my front end is...

    I purchased a 2002 325xi about 3 weeks ago. Seemed to be in good shape but definitely has its issues also. I am currently working through all of them but I am not sure how to deal with this problem. Symptoms, • Very very slight vibration when driving over 50kmh. • clunking when going over...

    Recently, I picked up the 5MT 330i sedan while knowing it needed some work on the fan/fan control. I was told it was only the ignition needing replaced as the fan wasn’t shutting off. On the drive home the fan control module (the little silver box?) was smoking. We unplugged it and got home...

    Hey, I've got a 2002 320i E46 4dr Sedan sitting around and I'm really considering doing it up for my first car. (I'm turning 17, I'm a mechanic and looking to build up a show car type style that I will also daily drive). What are some really aggressive/sexy body kits to get in Australia or that...

    Hello Recently, I became a proud owner of a 2002 bmw e46 320d touring. I love the car, but since it is not new, obviously there are some small problems, specially in places where plastic parts are involved. One of these places is the business cassette radio unit, where the volume knob became...

    I've seen a couple of threads regarding mirrors but I'm still having issues getting my passenger side mirror to work. The driver side works and the passenger reverse tilt works but I can't adjust it. I replaced both ECU's and the toggle switch. I also replaced the passenger side motor. Still...

    Hi there, Was driving home from work a few days ago and got stuck in some standstill traffic. Was not really paying much attention, until I looked up and noticed my temp guage was lit up (yes, I didn't notice until the light was on). I immediately turned off my car but didn't have a place to...

    Hey all I think the "help a noob" tag is the most fitting for this one First time poster though have used the site a handful of times already. I had a quick search through the forums to try and find an answer to my question though there are a lot of posts about new weird noises so it was like...

    We have a 2002 330ci and want to replace the missing subwoofer with a 2004 subwoofer. We need help with the wiring colors. We purchased a new/used 2004 subwoofer from eBay which included the both sides of terminal connectors on the new/used sub (which was good because the people we bought the...

    I have a 2002 325i sedan, this is the first winter having it, and I started having problems whenever it was below freezing. The driver's door will open, but then will not stay latched when you close it from outside (door just hits the car and comes back open). if you open it, get in and pull...

    Car alarm has started going off on it's own, no idea ofwhat's triggering it (it's in plain sight, no signs of foul play or large rodent on hood) anything obvious I can follow up on right away before considering replacement, could the problem be the keys vs alarm in the car? ( fyi - I haven't...

    Hi, this is my first post here :) I bought a 2002 330ci m-sport a couple months ago (first car), and so far i love it. It ran quiet and smooth in every way until last night. Last night the red battery light came on for a couple seconds while i revved it, then it went out. A minute later it came...

    Whenever I start my 2002 325i, there is always a strong gas smell. It goes away after a few minutes but I don't think this is normal. I know my Oxygen Sensor is bad, but I haven't gotten around to repairing it. Any Ideas as to where the gas smell is coming from?

    Hey guys i have a 2002 330ci manual trans with 180k miles. Not a problem with the engine ever. Its been very well taken care of. I was thinking about getting a TT turbo kit. My concern is how reliable FI m54b30's are with stock internals? How reliable have your setups been and do you recommend...

    Howdy, I would like to restore the pain on my 2002 318i if possible, however the paint on the bonnet/hood is looking really poor. Is this clear coat failure or is it something that could be polished/buffed out with love and sweat? The car was purchased a little while ago, and lives outside...
