    2003 318CI auto. Loss of power, requires more foot on the gas to get it moving at higher rpms. For the last month my car has been experiencing loss of power particularly at higher RPMS. Keep getting a clunking noise from under the car like the whole bottom end is just going to fall apart. On the...

    Can anyone help I'm about to pull my hair out!! I have a 2003 318ci and I've not had a radio working for a while and it's driving me crazy. Water managed to get itself into the boot because it didn't drain properly and it managed to short circuit the BM54 module in the boot which caused not...

    I had just bought the car for super cheap (car was not used for around half a year and not started) and on the way home the indicator started acting weird. 2 minutes later the dash backlight stopped working and all exterior lights stay on even if switch is off. Indicators, hazards and high beams...

    Can someone confirm if the following would share the same engines... *2002 318ci Convertible (Manual) *2004 318ci Convertible (Manual) This has the n42b20 engine I’m hoping that the older cars share the same engine as I need this engine code and would much rather buy a donor car (pre facelift)

    Hi all, I've been looking to buy an E46 for a while and have come across this 2003 318Ci (PETROL) MANUAL SE 2 door. Its got 107156 miles on it and is going for £1500. The price is somewhat ok for a dealer and the bodywork is in great condition so the only worry is the mechanical state. It...

    Hi all, Although this is my first post, I have been using this site as a reference for a while now! I have a 2002 318ci (n42 engine) automatic. I’ve got an issue that’s now really bugging me! The problem started about 2 weeks ago when my alternator packed up whilst driving home along the...

    hi all, first time poster so go easy on me! ;) I have an 05 318ci and have been experiencing, what I would call, clutch judder. It happens when pulling off in first gear from a stand still. It starts off gradually as the clutch starts to bite, but gets much worse as you release the clutch...

    So this issue has been happening for maybe the last 6 months or so, so definitely not a sudden thing. But I thought I'd finally ask for an answer. On a cold startup, about 3-4mins after the engine has been running (so the temp needle is just lifting off the blue) the engine starts to smoke a...

    Hey guys. So I bought a 2000 BMW 318ci with the M43B19 (M43TU) engine. It's the 1.9 single cam engine. I got the car really really cheap and I was going to part it out but it really is too nice. I bought new gaskets, oil, plugs and all that and did a head gasket job. The car now runs. All dash...

    Hey guys. I have the opportunity to purchase a 2000 BMW 318ci. It's a car that has been parked up for a while due to what is apparently a bad head gasket. I went to see the car today and found a couple of interesting things. The car did start and was just puring clouds of white smoke out of the...

    Hi guys, sorry if there is already a thread on this, I'm a nooby who lacks time! recently i took off my 318ci door panels off since they had several clips broken, bought some from ebay, and now the front bottom part keeps on snapping off and rattles a lot while driving (pissing me). I recon...
