    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...

    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?

    I swapped out my stock muffler for a magnaflow muffler a while ago, in the last few days I have had a lot more exhaust pops, could this be because of an exhaust leak? Any ideas or some insight would be nice.

    I have a e46 330xi, I would like to get a roof rack to hold either skis or fishing, rod holders. Simple bars work. I want a system that fits the fixed points on my roof that doesn't break the bank. Any recommendations or sites to look at would be great other than car id

    I recently had my hood fly up and hit my windshield while I was driving. I took it to a body repair shop and I was quoted $700 for a new hood and having it painted. I can't decide whether I go through them, buy a custom hood or buy OEM and vinyl wrap it. I was wondering If anyone knew any cool...

    I drive a 2002 330xi with 157,000 miles. This past week every morning when I start my car, I'm sitting for about 20 minutes to let it warm up. Once the temp gauge is in the middle I proceed to put it in drive, but when I hit the gas the car won't budge until I hit the rpm to about 5. After I put...

    I bought my 2001 330xi last week and on my drive home after buying the vehicle my DSC and my red brake light turned on. I was using cruise control on the way home but after the lights turned on the cruise control doesn't work, but I don't know if this was related. I was just curious if anyone...

    I recently came across a nice square set of BBS RSII, 18x8.5 ET22. I am looking into purchasing them for my 330xi and I was wondering (as I am quite new to this sort of stuff) if they would fit without any modification? If so, would it be a simple fender roll or more of a fender roll + stretched...

    Hi guys, new member here! I recently bought an automatic 330xi from a friend 180k km, he changed the whole cooling system; the system was exploding because over-pressure, resulted to be a head gasket that previous owner didn't told but admitted she knew. He sold it to me for 1500€ and I...

    Im looking to make around 500 horsepower (and eventually more) with a 330xi and the stock tranny can only handle about half of that. Im hoping for some recommendations and tips on transmissions that can handle the hp and the awd.

    I have a 2001 330xi and while driving it I lost power to the wheels and had it towed to a mechanic. He is trying to diagnose the problem and he told me sometimes the transmission works and sometimes it doesn’t. You’ll shift it into park and you’ll hear a grinding noise like it’s trying to shift...
