    Hello, does anyone know how much a stock M54B22 engine can handle horsepower? Me and my buddies are thinking of slapping a turbo on a 320Ci E46, engine swap is out of the picture since we are specifically trying to get as much power out of an M54B22 as possible, simply to see how much is...

    Hi all, Recently started to have some issues shifting gears when at a standstill, originally this was only apparent when cold but recently it happens regardless of engine temp. Following some of the other threads online I changed the tranny oil using a 50/50 mix of redline mtl & d4 atf oil...

    Hello i have a E46 320Ci, daily drifter which im soon going to engine swap and turbo. I wonder if it's possible to remove the AC condenser + most of the lines but keep the heating function, basicly removing all the cold part of the AC, but keep the heating because i need it to defrost my...

    Hi everyone, I'm new here. Literally signed up less then an hour ago! I currently drive a 2000 BMW 320Ci. Coming from a 2002 VW Bora 1.9TDi PD130 remapped, I feel like the 320 is lacking in low end grunt and really only gets going once screaming in high revs opposed to my (automatic slush box)...

    Hi all I'm currently stationed in Germany, driving a 2000 320CI. I was wondering about how the steptronic works, specifically this : Is the car only in sports mode if I flip over into M/S and not shift up or down? Or does it disable sport mode if I do use the steptronic to shift? I've...
