    Left and right front control arms for XI. These came off my 2005 330XI. Normally the ball joints are non-replaceable but I was able to remove them and replaced them with new Meyle E36 ball joints (feel free to search this forum for this DIY). As such, the ball joints are now replaceable with...

    So i lowered my xi a while ago and i changed both axles because the boots ripped and had to replace the passenger side one again a bit after i had just replaced them also because of the boot. Is there a way to prevent this or do i just have to deal with it lol.

    So i have a 2003 330xi and Ive had a system running lean code for a while now, Ive changed the DISA, MAF, both o2 sensors for bank 2, fixed a vacuum line going from intake to fuel pressure regulator, and spark plugs but still running lean. Can anyone help or know why it’s running lean?

    Was driving to school the other day, and this warning light magically appeared! Anyone know what this means?
  5. Forced Induction
    Hi I have a 330xi that I eventually want to turbocharge with about 100-150hp increase if possible as I still want to be able to daily drive it as well. The reason I am asking about the bottom mount is because I still want AC if possible and also I am unsure if the difference with the subframe...

    Hey my car has been running lean for a bit now and i looked at the f tubes coming off the intake boot and noticed the small one was broken so i tugged a little and the whole thing came out. I was wondering what it goes to and if that could be the reason for my car running lean?

    So my car recently started screeching from the right rear wheel. I tried taking apart the brake assembly as well as the rotor to see if it was rubbing on anything but it wasnt. The screech only happens when im in drive and not when im in reverse and it stops as i stop the car as well as starts...
  9. Forced Induction
    Currently I want more power from my car since it is awd and has so much potential for putting down more power. I did a little bit of research and found out that getting more power while naturally aspirated is just too expensive per hour gained compared to forced induction. My main question is...

    I have this really good looking 330xi manual that I really want to get but it is strait piped from the manifold back and sounds bad to me. I want to do an m50 manifold swap and this a header change but with this strait piped exhaust it would be unbearable. Does anyone know how I can get a...

    So I recently put on catless headers and I still want a bit more sound but nothing too obnoxious so I was wondering what is the best bang for your buck rear muffler that would have a deeper sound. I also planned on replacing the middle muffler with a Magnaflow middle muffler too if I’m still not...

    So I got a 330xi manual after flipping an old 325xi auto that made me fall in love with the e46. The only 330xi manual that I could find near me was only a 2001 5 speed so I want to know how/where I could find a 6 speed manual transmission that is built to be able to be a lot more robust and...

    This topic has been discussed elsewhere but the threads die with no resolution. Perhaps we can solve this once and for all!? Horrendous vibration at start and gets worse as the idle comes down to a tick over 500. Gets worse in reverse or drive with foot on the brake and car stopped. Seems to be...

    my 2005 330xi has a crank no start situation It started a few months back where it wouldn't start on the first time but would after a few seconds of letting it sit it would crank and turn over as nothing happened. this went on for a few weeks until I parked the car for a couple of months while I...

    I am in the need of a new clutch and flywheel combo and thought i would go the single mass flywheel route. It seems to be both cheaper and arguably better, but weirdly enough i cannot seem to find a kit for my car in any Europe shops, INCLUDING ebay... The kit I am looking for is the Valeo...

    I am resolving to live a life of gratitude. There is just far too little thankfulness and gratitude in our world. So I write this open letter to everyone involved at E46 Fanatics. Thank you SO MUCH for the wealth of expertise and information you have shared on this forum. I am an academic...

    Hey all, My CV axles have gone out and I'm looking at getting a pair to replace them. I'm curious about the ABS ring however. On all the axles I've seen, they either don't address it, or specifically say its not included. Is this something I'm expected to carry over from the old axles? I've...

    I just got my first BMW, an 05 330xi with the five speed GM automatic. The owner's manual says the tranny doesn't need the fluid and filter replaced. I don't believe it. The car has a tad over 130,000 miles on it. What's the deal with tranny service on this model?
