    [Car appreciation post] I decided to make a spur of the moment decision and travel to Joshua Tree National Park on Sunday afternoon with my mom, brother, and his girlfriend. (Roughly an 80 mile drive) Around 2PM, we set off with a full house as well as a trunk packed with hiking and climbing...

    Hello people from the internet :) My name is Oleksii, I am from Kyiv, Ukraine. I would like to show you my recent purchase, 2003 330i with 6 speed MT. Dreamed of such a car for over a year and a very long time looked for a solid variant. I wanted exactly 330i with a 6-speed manual gearbox...
  3. My current (and first) project

    Currently chasing down a knocking sound in my engine bay (probably a spun bearing) but here's my baby. Nothing tok special yet as I've been doing all the maintenance the last owner put off.

    Hey guys, I'm an owner of a 330i for about 3 years, first time poster. I've been trying to track down this rattling sound I've been having with my 2001 330i. It is an automatic and has about 180k miles. I have replaced the vanos seals and Rattle rings, all 6 sparkplugs with NGK laser...

    Hi Guys, I just bought a 2002 E46 330i a few weeks ago and needed to get a RWC to transfer to my name but unfortunately as it goes with these cars there were a few things I needed to fork out for and long story short the only thing preventing me from getting a RWC is the dreaded airbag light in...

    I've replaced my entire CCV and cooling systems (-the radiator) and associated gaskets thinking I would be okay for at least a year and happened to end up getting several codes all at once including limp mode sporadically. I don't even know where to start as this is my third M54 engine and I've...

    So my 2003 330i SSG has been having this issue for over 3 years since I bought the car and no mechanic can find the solution.

    Hello again, just wanted to get another opinion on what could be wrong. Today I have been messing around quite a lot and did many donuts and burnouts (I live in Seattle so it rains a lot). The car in question is 2004 330i Automatic. Towards the end of the day I had a wired issue occur. After...

    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...
