    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...

    Hello, I recently purchased a 04 330xi. When driving normally I hear a clunk sound from under the car it sounds like it could be the CSB but I am unsure. One more thing, when going from reverse to drive the back end of the car shakes violently and when I hit around 3-4k rpm from a stopped...

    Hey all, Just curious on what the mechanical differences are between the 330xi and 330i front sub-frame. Basically differences in AWD and RWD drive trains. I should say I'm looking for the physical differences in how they are mounted / put together. Thanks Guys!

    2003 BMW 330xi: This has started happening recently. Whenever I start the car (especially cold) there is a cricket-like chirping noise coming form the engine compartment. This noise confuses and concerns me because I put completely new belts, tensioners, and pulleys on the engine (back in mid...
