    So I want to install a wide band AFR gauge on my 330 and I see that every kit comes with a EGT sensor. I have headers on my car and if you have installed headers on your e46 you know about the rear 02 sensor situation. I am just curious if i NEED to install the EGT sensor or not because most of...

    I am looking to buy a new headers for my 02’ 330Ci and I found this kit from vacmotorsports. I not sure if it is any good, I don’t know what to look for when looking at headers but I do want a high flow cat and this doesn’t seem too bad. Any thoughts or opinions on this before I buy? E46 non-M...

    This might be common knowledge to some, but I just thought I'd post for anyone who's wondering. This morning, I had come to a stop light with a Z3 in the lane next to me. However, it was a Z3 M Roadster. 1998 I'm pretty sure. I knew my 2003 330i couldn't beat it straight up so I didn't try too...

    Hello fellow E46 fans. I'm in a bit of situation here. My son was driving this car and the head gasket blew. (That's my assumption, coolant smell from the exhaust, engine is missing on 1 cylinder, oil leaking from valve cover gasket and general smoke from the head area) The shop said $11,500...

    Hi folks, I'm a new E46 owner having taken delivery of a 2002 330ci and want to find a quality, honest mechanic / repair shop which has decent knowledge of Beamers of this age. Live near Rutherglen so anything around Glasgow and the west of Scotland, South Lanarkshire etc would be ideal. Car...

    Hello everyone I'm currently in the process of building a track car 330i. I got a full roll cage and a 5 point harness installed already and I was about to install a quick release steering wheel short hub but found that it doesn't fit at all. Before I start taking everything apart I just wanted...

    Hi all so the other day I filled up the tank in my car drove off and the gauge still read empty I shut the car off turned it back on and it read full though the next morning when I went out to the car the cabin reeked of gas. I believe it is coming from the fuel pump cause it is wet on the back...

    Hey everyone, I bought my first car 3 months ago, e46 330d. It's amzing car and I am loving it. It has stage 1 chip (220hp) and pulls real good. When I just bought the car, turbo would spool at 2100 rpm, and pull like crazy. About a month ago i started to feel sligth increase in turbo lag...

    So I have the 4 spoke wheel and I want to swap it out with the three spoke one, is this just a plug and play type deal or am I going to need to do any adaptations?

    I’m planning to replace my expansion tank ,I’ve heard that when you replace the expansion you have to replace the thermostat at the bottom also because it breaks, Is there a way so that it won’t break or is it inevitable?
  13. E46 Showroom
    Hey guys, so yeah I decided to start this and post the progress of my drift build, I wanted initially an E46 330 Black Coupe Manual and I got exactly that but I’m unsure if I made the right decision with the car as it looks it’s been too abused. Anyway I was tired of just looking and waiting for...

    What differences would a full metal steering coupler make? And would you recommend it for my drift project 03 330i Dorman 425-760 Steering Shaft Universal Joint for Select BMW Models https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08P53ZS2C/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_BG1XBCG2YN4W9H81VKNH Saw this on Amazon and...

    My '02 330CI has been having a weird issue the last few weeks where it'll randomly start idling extremely roughly and the car will begin to shake. Sometimes the RPMs dip so low I'm afraid the car's about to die. However, if I turn the car off and back on, it'll start to run normally again for a...

    Hi All! Hoping there's someone who might be able to help me diagnose a new engine noise that has sprouted, I'm having difficulty locating the source. Happened shortly after an oil top-up. Can't hear it at idle and disappears from around 3500-4000rpm This is from a 2004 E46 330ci Convertible...

The one from marketplace is almost a whole 1k cheaper and the colour is nicer imo. However the other has had a lot...

    I noticed that my car has had a whine from the engine bay. The whine stops when I push the clutch in. Only whines when I'm not moving. I am curious what sound that is and a tad concerned. I'm stumped *only on cold starts

The car in question, a 2000 330xi wagon, automatic, has been sitting for five weeks, started every second week. Now, at the latest start...
