    So I'm currently sitting on two beamers. The one I daily drive is an immaculate 2005 330i sport. This one I've had for about a year and has absolutely no problems. Paint is near perfect, interior perfect, and engine and transmission feel strong. Along with that I've added some decent upgrades to...

    Upon starting my 330i, there is a faint noise coming from the front of the engine. I replaced my water pump within the last year, and haven't been driving much recently. It doesn't sound like what my water pump sounded like when it failed, and there's no coolant leaking. I used a stethoscope...

    Hello everyone, I purchased an 03 BMW 330i a few months ago as my first car and I absolutely love it. However, with it being my first car, I ran into a problem the other day that I don't know what it could be said from it being either the battery or alternator. I was cleaning out my car and...

    Sorry for yet another thread on rough idle / lean codes / etc.. I'm genuinely trying to learn how to work on my car, and I'm stuck. I've got a 2001 330i with 106k. Recently it started what sounds like some very common issues.. rough idle, stalled completely a few times, drives hard under load...

    Thought this was a neat little gem to share. Most cars I've looked at over time have never come with any paperwork (aside from the title). However, my 330 came with all manuals, forms (i.e. accident form, first aid guide, etc), and dealer paperwork. Attached below is the car's original paperwork...

    I know a lot of people have asked this in the past but I wanna see if opinions have changed or there’s been deeper insight and experience. I have a 2003 330i with 187k miles, I drive mostly on the highway >75mph, and live in California so the weather isn’t too cold or hot. What oil would you...

    A few months ago, I bought a 330i for cheap due to a dented door and an unknown transmission issue that didn't stop the car from driving. The car was from Virginia originally and was imported to Canada eight years ago and was clearly not properly converted to a Canadian dash, the numbers on the...

    Recently, I picked up the 5MT 330i sedan while knowing it needed some work on the fan/fan control. I was told it was only the ignition needing replaced as the fan wasn’t shutting off. On the drive home the fan control module (the little silver box?) was smoking. We unplugged it and got home...

    I’ve been trying to chase problems on this car for the past few weeks and more problems keep happening. It started with my intake manifold runner not opening/closing when it needed to and it was misfiring then a ton of circuitry problems started happening. I’ve replace my DME already so it’s not...

    https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/376286467331267/ or https://www.gumtree.com/p/bmw/bmw-330ci-e46-great-car-low-mileage/1413266512 Struggling to decide between these two. The one from marketplace is almost a whole 1k cheaper and the colour is nicer imo. However the other has had a lot...

Im in the market for a Manual e46 330i, I do want a zhp but Ive seen only a few zhp's and they were priced at 15k and a couple at 20k. is that a...

    So my car (2003 330i) has been making a whirring/ whining noise that I can hear at idle and low rpm.the noise changes in pitch relative to rpm. it sounds exactly like this for reference. The car groans when accelerating out of slow turns and growls/groans when turning wheel in park...

    I have a 2003 330i with the ZF steptronic transmission and I go between regular drive mode and sport mode often. What exactly does the sport mode do? It obviously feels more connected and sporty. I know it hold revs higher, but is there anything else aside from that? Thanks!
