    Hello, What should I do if my headlights do not turn off when in the '0' position? (Hoping it's something obvious to avoid a potential $400 control switch module replacement) I just purchased my first car at 35 after never really needing one living in Chicago. Life changes and with the help...

    I have an '03 330i, and I've bled the cooling system a few times now. Either I'm an idiot, or there's a leak somewhere in the system. I want to rule out any leaks, because I don't see any coolant on the ground and the coolant light doesn't come on. The cooling system is the only trouble I've...

    I have a 2003 330i that has been well maintained. Started it tonight and I began to hear a noise that sounds like there were rocks in the engine. I can't really pinpoint where it's coming from. Checked the oil and saw that it had none. (Mine has been burning through oil recently) I filled it up...

    Hey guys. Just got an e46 m54b30 motor that has launch control set up to the clutch pressure switch. I was wondering if there was a way to change it from that to a button in the dash or steering wheel. This car is intended for drifting and the launch control being set to the clutch will just...

    2003 330i 4dr The highbeams refuse to stay on, I can turn the dial to the left of the turn signals to the full right/on position then push my stalk forward to engage and keep on my brights, but it just flips right back into the neutral position, however if I pull the stalk towards me into the...

    Hi all, I've been lurking on all the various BMW forums for the better part of 10 years. My dad bought an E46 318i SE in 2004 (we still have it @ 70k miles) and I've had a soft spot for the E46 ever since. I've wanted my own ever since (to keep forever as a daily - I have 'simple' taste) and...

    Good day all. As the title of this post states, I am a BMW enthusiast though I prefer the term fan boy. I am also a newb BMW master technician and I work mainly in my driveway. Anyway enough about me, let me tell you about the plans I have and the reason I joined this community. Just so you're...

    Hello and thank you for adding me. My car is a 2001 330i and I am just getting to know what many of you already know. These are awesome machines and they certainly give back a lot of performance for a little money. There are a few little bugs to work out like no heater and a cracked washer...

    WIP Showing my e46 for the first time in a few years. I've always been too critical of my own stuff. Never even had a forum avatar before today. But the past few weeks have been pretty rewarding compared to 4 years of mostly maintenance so I'm feeling finally ready to start this build thread...

    I have a 2002 330i 5 speed. I have an issue where I can rev the pedal in neutral and accelerate in 1st gear UNTIL I take my foot off the gas. There is then no response from the pedal once it has been let up. I then have to reset the battery and it works again for the first time I press the...

    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...

    Hi everyone, long time lurker but I now have something to post so here goes. I own a 2000 323i E46 (some 246,000kms) with an engine that's in tip-top shape, no oil consumption whatsoever, no nothing. I had the classic misfire issues caused by vacuum leaks and a broken PCV system, but other...

    So up until now I've owned two BMWs - '97 323i and '99 523i. This is my first 3 liter BMW as well as first BMW wagon. This is how she looked like when I got her this November: She's a 330i with a 6 speed manual transmission, M sports package and a lot of other goodies. This car is one of...

    Hey guys. I have a 2004 330i sedan that I believed to be a ZAM (Canadian equivalent of ZHP package) until today. Apparently the M Sports package II looks virtually identical to the ZAM but doesn't have all of the upgrades. My car has style 135 wheels, M door sills, M dead pedal, M steering...

    Hello forum members, Working on my Wife's 2002 330i and chasing down two codes, P2096 "Post Catalyst Fuel Trim System Too Lean Bank 1" and P2098 "Post Catalyst Fuel Trim System Too Lean Bank 2". Generic codes pulled from Harbor Freight scanner. I have cleared the codes and they return fairly...

    Hi all, just purchased a 2004 330i ZHP with 198k miles. No check engine light, but when I went to get my emissions test I failed due to all 5 OBD flags they check are showing not ready. I bought the car, then immediately drove 500 miles, so I figured the drive cycle would be good even if there...
