    So I have the 4 spoke wheel and I want to swap it out with the three spoke one, is this just a plug and play type deal or am I going to need to do any adaptations?

    I’m planning to replace my expansion tank ,I’ve heard that when you replace the expansion you have to replace the thermostat at the bottom also because it breaks, Is there a way so that it won’t break or is it inevitable?

    Okey so first of all this is my first car and I don’t really know much, but I love it and I would like to keep it alive. So I got a 2003 E46 which won’t get to the normal engine temperature and stay there. The problem started now in the autumn, I’m living in Norway and when the temperatures...

    Hey all, My CV axles have gone out and I'm looking at getting a pair to replace them. I'm curious about the ABS ring however. On all the axles I've seen, they either don't address it, or specifically say its not included. Is this something I'm expected to carry over from the old axles? I've...
  5. Suspension, Brakes
    So I’ve had my e46 for about a year now and my shocks are starting to go bad mainly the springs don’t have as much resistance as I’ve seen on other cars. Was wondering if any of you could help me find a good set of coil overs since most of you already have experience with some brands, not...

    So I'm going to check out an '03 325i wagon in the next couple days which is a car I've had my eye on for a while (I'm glad I was able to find this community first!). I was just wondering if you guys had some tips for what to look for and what to watch out for before buying. In addition, the...

    My center console was wearing so I decided to replace it over the weekend. When I pulled the arm rest and everything out. I noticed a cable that wasn’t plugged into anything. I moved it next to the rear ash tray light cable. See pics attached!

    2003 330i 4dr The highbeams refuse to stay on, I can turn the dial to the left of the turn signals to the full right/on position then push my stalk forward to engage and keep on my brights, but it just flips right back into the neutral position, however if I pull the stalk towards me into the...
  10. Engine Swaps
    I’ll start by saying I’m a newbie to the BMW realm, (I Hope realm wasn’t too dark lol) and I purchased a 03’ 325i M54 engine about half a year ago. After an oil change and minor vehicle maintenance hence my inexperience with German cars. Story short, the gasket blew and it smoked like a train. I...

    Hello and greetings Bavarian Motor Works fanatics! I know there are quite a few forums around here, but I need to start my own thread to show my progress and to show what I am doing with possible insight on what to do with my own Bimmer. I am on and around very often in these forums to get to...

    Hey guys, I'm new to the workings of an e46. I've owned this car about a month and a half and I'm still figuring out its 'quirks.' Two days ago I powered into a turn on a cold engine (just leaving work). Everything was fine until about the end of 3rd gear when the transmission hesitated, the...

    I have a 2003 e46. 2 weeks ago my expansion tank got a crack and over heated. I replaced it with an OEM tank and OEM upper radiator hose. I then filled up the tank but little did I know since its my first bmw i had to remove the bleeder screw and turn on my heat then fill up. So my car started...
  14. E46 M3
    Bought this gem from original owner with 63k miles. It's a 6 speed manual. I've been driving it off and on for 5 months trying to settle on some improvements/mods. I put a new double din Kenwood in it with all the modern conveniences and it made the HK's sound a ton better. Just picked it up...

    Hey guys, I own an 03 330i. I currently have on my 17inch M-sport rims on the car that came with it. A long time friend of mine purchased an M4 and got bigger rims. He gave me the 18inch 513M rims that came on his for free. I was wondering if they fit or what can I do to make them fit(if...
  16. E46 M3
    So I've been thinking about upgrading to an E46 M3 for around two months now (been a dream car since 2001 :craig:) and I came across my friend's 2003 LSB M3 with 129k miles on it. He told me he wants to sell it so I was like hey why not look into it He did tell me his VANOS unit was replaced and...

    I have a 2003 e46, and the radio was made in November 02. PART NUMBER 65. 12-6 921 963 I know that my radio is not Aux capable, and that it will only process iPod data and is Sirius radio capable. HOWEVER, I am wondering if there is any way around this? For those electrically savvy, is...

    So bought a used '03 330i and everything is great. Everything work fine until one night I noticed my headlight went very dim. They just went out the both of them. I was about to get the bulbs replace but I was told by some mechanics it's most likely a fuse problem. If so, where is the fuse for...

    Thanks for helping me out. Here's the deal: A guy has posted his 2003 330CI for sale. I'm scheduling a test drive, but I'm concerned about something: He states in his ad that the car has both the performance, premium, and sports packages on it. If the car does have ZHP, it would have a 6 speed...
