  1. E46 330i to 330d Conversion

    General E46 Forum
    Hi, I am planning to strip down a 330d from England and send out all the parts in a crate to Ontario where I plan to convert my 02 330i to a 330d. I spent a summer in the UK driving a 330d and this is the car that made me fall in love with the e46. I love my car but I've always wanted the diesel...

    General E46 Forum

    General E46 Forum
    Hey, apologies if I may break a rule or two since this is my first post on here, on any forum really, so feel free to move the thread if faulty placed. I'm doing my best tho.

  7. Intermittent Issue - Crank but no start

    General E46 Forum
    OK so this has been an intermittent issue on my car for a good while (over a year) but only happens rarely. I recently had the fuel pump replaced (http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=1072036&highlight=) and thought this issue may have been linked to that, so was surprised that after...
  8. Jake's E46 330d Touring Build

    The Showroom
    So I've decided to start a build thread on here as I've been feeling a little homeless since switching from VAG to BMW, and I think it's partly the reason why i've lost momentum with doing anything to the car! Hopefully i'll be able to learn a lot about the car from being on here, and be able to...

    General E46 Forum
    Hi all, My 330d is due an oil service so I phoned up the local specialist. He quoted £155+VAT. Thinking this seemed pretty steep for a basic oil/filter change I phoned up the local dealer which offered £129 all in! Thoughts? It's Clayton Cars Bristol vs Dick Lovett
