    Hi so I'm new to the e46 family but I have a fair understanding of cars. My current issues are my coolant light is on, my engine overheats pretty quick, my engine light is on, and my car goes into limp mode when accelerating quick.

    Hi, So my E46 (year 2004 330d) decided that the the one thing missing in my life is an electrical f*ckery. I’ll try to explain as good as i can, and maybe someone has had this problem. Pretty much my airbag light came on, and since then it shows different faults, everything works fine if the...

    I drive a Black 2004 e46 facelift 325xi. I blew out the head gasket diving a little ways without an oil change.

    Well when you look at the attached photo it's obvious my LCAB needs to be changed ASAP. Here's what I need advise on: I brought my car to a shop to get the rack and pinion changed which went off pretty good until I got it back and had this horrific shake from 50-70mph. Keep in mind this shop was...

    Here's my story, while driving home tonight I was courteous enough to move over and let a few people pass me.
