    Hello, I have a 99 323i M52TU that misfires consistently at high RPM. The car also seems to have very inconsistent power. Some days I can barely rev out the engine to 6900 (car is tuned for that) and some days I have waaaaay more power. When the car is running good, I can redline as much as I...

    I’ve been working on my new but recently old bought 2000 323i, I replaced all old coolant hoses and yet still have a mystery leak. The leak is not bad but is draining my coolant.

    Hey everybody. So I have a 2000 323i automatic that just won't behave. A couple of days ago I was driving home and overheated.
