    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?

    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.

    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...

    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

    I know the saying, "learn to drive a slow car fast." I've done that for years. I'm looking to add a little more power to my 330i in the near future. Does anyone have any ideas as to what would be best in terms of quality and performance? I already have plans for the suspension, so that's not a...

The car was tuned on the dyno and made 270whp at 5500rpm, then it was running lean and the tuner couldn't push it further. So...
