    ok no rude comments please. I have a 2000 328i automatic with almost 200,000 miles on it. I'm changing the transmission fluid & filter and was wondering if it would be helpful or not to use gasket maker in addition to the actual gasket. I'm just learning about cars and I only have you YouTube...

    Hi. Pretty new here! Myself and I'm sure many others out there have been dying to find any tunes or anything for the MS42 (preferably for a 328i with an m52b28tu.🤣) maybe with some burbles or pops, I can't find anything to play with, (the MS4X exhaust mods didn't work for me for some reason.)...

    Hey everyone, I'm looking to purchase a e46 touring. I've been lurking for a while, and the m52tu seems to be practically indestructible. The particular car I'm looking at is a 328i and already has 200k miles, but has full service history. I could get a 320i with a m54b22 at the same price...

    Hi everyone. So I own a 1999 Japanese LHD BMW E46 328i. Issue is, my On-Board Monitor Menu knob isn't working. The button press registers, but the rotations do not.

    I have a 2000 328i auto and I recently got a 2004 320i manual. I was looking to swap my engine into the manual car. Is it a direct fit or would I need to get other parts for a 328i? If so what parts would I need? Let me know. Thanks

    At 170k I've finally been afflicted with the dreaded subframe tearing. Boooo. Pics below in link: https://imgur.com/a/zUcGDmd Has anyone had luck selling E46's in this condition? I was planning to sell it anyway before this happened, due to a move & job change. The car is in immaculate...

    Hi, I am looking for some help with troubleshooting. This is my first post on this forum. Be gentle. I just "completed" a 330i intake manifold swap on my 99 e46 328i (manual). My car has a AA supercharger kit (stage 1), headers, borla catback exhaust. As part of the swap I redid the CCV...

    Hello Everyone, I recently got a laptop with DIS v57 and INPA 5.0.6. I am using this style plug to connect to my car(1999 m52 e46 328i) Whenever I boot up INPA it never gets my ignition signal no matter what I do, it does seem to read my battery as being there. DIS v57 is another story all...

    Hello everyone, I'm working on my 99 328i e46 sedan. I'm putting new stoptech brakes on my car with 328mm rotors. When I got to the back end I did a dumb and left the ebrake on when I was removing the old rotors. I realized what was going on after a few whacks and took the ebrake off and got...

    Hello all, so lets start off by saying I'm coming from an ex police crown vic, so the car I'm looking at is about as different as you can get. I'm looking at a 1999 328i in metallic blue, it's a jdm import with 77000km, and the asking price is 5900CAD. The car is in mostly good shape however...

    I have a 99 328i and my a/c is not working. Compressor is working, pressure is good, evaporation valve replaced. , the system worked for a few minutes today until a cloud of what I suppose was the r134a coming near the passenger side of the firewall. I'm at a loss for what it could be. Pressure...

    I have been offered to buy a 1999 e46 328i for $700 and I am wondering how much I could potentially get for it if I were to part it out. I have not seen the car in person, but the owner says that it has a blown head gasket, but that he/she isn't sure. They said that it was "puffing tons of...
