    On Friday my 330ci started running a little over the middle of the gauge, I took it to my shop because I know about the coolant temp buffer but they said it seemed fine. I used the test function on the dash to get a more precise temp and it seems to run between 89 and 98-99 Celsius, from a hot...

    Hi all, got a AT 06 330Ci with 108k miles. Mechanic recently replaced my thermostat with a Mahle Behr unit. Also changed some intake boots due to vacuum leak. Not my daily driver, drive it about 30 miles per week. It's been a bit cold outside lately, about 45-50f in the morning. I live pretty...

    Didn’t do the suspension work myself, it was already done when I bought it. Love the stance and how wide the front is. The back… not so much lol. It’s been holding up pretty well considering I drift it. Has Parts Shop Max suspension, welded diff, bone stock engine and trans.

    Hey there, I have a 2001 bmw 330ci manual. It runs great but sometimes after a pull the car will lose a few cylinders. It goes back to normal after I turn it off and back on again, this has happened twice in total and it has been months since the first time but tonight it happened again. I have...

    I just replaced my starter motor on 330ci CS, I have connected everything up apart from one plug that I do not remember where it goes. I am trying to get a labeled diagram of the harness up try to find out where it goes, I think it is just a spare connector as inside the plugs, it looks to be...

    So I am buying new headers and mid pipe for my 2002 330Ci and obviously I need a new muffler. I dont really have a idea on what to buy for it.

    I had an exciting trip to the mountains near San Diego for work last week. Lovely day, clear skies, windy twisting roads, 15 degrees cooler than down in the flats. I finished up the work I was doing on the summit of North Peak (about an hour east of me), and started down the hill. Going...

    I just bought this 330Ci off craigslist for $2800. The exterior and interior are in relatively good shape, with the only problems being a broken center console, stereo, and shift knob, and some damage to the front bumper (so far). The leather seats are cracking but I dont really mind it and what...

    This is an observation I've made recently, on a cold morning (~5-10°c) engine warms up and stops at about 103°C, no other discernable changes to engine operation. Throwing no codes. After the car has been shut off and then restarted the cooling system warms to maintain 95-98°C like a champion...

    I bought my 330ci in early spring of this past year and ive been wanting to try out the harman kardon audio but the mechanic I bought it from changed the battery and the radio turned on but theres no volume and it will not go up from the radio itself or the steering wheel. Ive asked some...

    Hello ! Not even 24h ago i bought a pretty well maintained 2002 330ci EURO. I had a 6 hour drive to home, and 5 hours in at 130km/h lights came on : EML, engine, TC, and yellow brake light. Still had control over the throttle, didn’t test for loss of power. Parked and shut it off and on, had...

    Hey all, I have an M54B30 in my 2002 330ci that I use at the track for drifting. Im noticing that when I hit 6500ish RPM theres a hash rev limiter that feels like total power cut. I assume its a hard fuel cut limiter but im struggling to find information. My question, is it possible to "soften"...

    So I am going through a bit of nostalgia at the moment and looking for the proverbial needle in the haystack. I had sold my '03 330 coupe in Jet Black with Dinan mods about 7 years ago to a student in SoCal. After a quick AutoCheck search, was sold again and has been with the current owner for...

    Hi all, It’s been a while since I’ve started up my ’02 330ci – I’m getting the yellow [EML + ASC/DSC + Brake] lights on the dash. I originally mistook this for the ‘Trifecta’ lights error, so followed the guide on reading INPA codes – just realized today the ‘trifecta’ issue is actually...

    Well, I've had my 330ci since April of last year, I brought it in kinda poor condition but for a fair price so I started fixing it: first thing was the steering felt loose and didn't return to its centre, so i replaced the FCABs and the steering rack (including the guibo), still didn't fixed it...
