    Hi all, I’m in the process of building an e46 track car and need to purchase a new propshaft for a 330d gearbox to 330 differential. However, I’m having a hard time finding a manual propshaft. I have seen that there is plenty of propshaft from 330 auto boxes. Can I use a propshaft from an...

    I searched for hours and could not find a straight forward answer for this case. I want to swap a ZF 330i auto trans to my 325i because I have one with extremely low mileage. more specific: I have a ZF 5hp-19 version 1060 000 011 on my 325i m54b25. I want to replace it with ZF 5hp-19 version...

    This issue just started tonight with my car as I was driving home on the freeway. I tried to accelerate to merge on the freeway, and as I was accelerating, the car would violently shake in the rear, almost the same feeling as like a burnout or a launch. But, my tires were not spinning, obviously...

    I've now done some extensive research and believe I have "cracked the code" with the mysterious transmission light. I will be trying out a couple simple fixes, which will be featured in a write-up I am completing soon. This issue has affected me more than anything else the 330i has thrown my...

    So I own a 1999 328i and I have a 1600watt sound system in it, and I have always had the problem of my car dropping rpm once or twice a minute when it's cold (not bad just about a 100-200 rpm dip for a split second) but now when I went to start my car one morning it started up just fine but...

    Bumped a bunch of years-old threads trying to figure this out... Basically my driver's window auto-drop - the feature that drops the window ¼" when opening the door and then shuts it when closing - is not working consistently. The strangest part that I've noticed, which is not mentioned in the...

    I am going to be converting my E46 320ia (M54) to a manual, and my friend has a 318i hes selling for cheap, and from what I understand all the 5 speed transmissions are the same? But I'll need a M54 flywheel and clutch? Is this correct?

    Hi, My wagon (which is an automatic) becomes very rough feeling if I travel at speed but if I pop it down a gear in sport manual mode it increases the revs and the shuddering sensation disappears. It feels like my manual car does when I change gears too early but it's an auto and it drives fine...

I scanned my e46 with a professional tablet and figured out that the issue was the rear left parking...

    Hello fanatics! I need to test my EDS4(torque converter clutch solenoid) and EDS1(main pressure solenoid) solenoids. What is a good way/are the best ways to do so? Is solenoid failure common? I believe my tranny is not keeping pressure, and jerks with the TC clutch under slow acceleration. It...

    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...

    Hey all, Ive got a curious question regard the auto trans across the ENTIRE E46 line up. More specifically what determines wether a car has a steptronic trans or not. Based on this site: (within the year) https://www.automobile-catalog.com/make/bmw/3-series_e46/3-series_e46-1_sedan/1999.html...

    Driving along and without warning drive seems to have quit. No matter what gear no go. On Jack stands all wheels and drive lines rotate freely. No noise, no disconnect. Could this be an electrical issue? Fuse (F102=TCM)? I seen this topic before but never resolved. Thx. One note, for about a...

    Sorry in advance if I posted in the wrong forum. :hi: I took my 323ci for a fun day at a wet skidtrack, disabled DSC and it slid quite easily and was a lot of fun despite being a open diff automatic. I left it in steptronic mode the whole day and had one downside which was quite annoying when...
