    We are fixing up my son's new-to-him E46 and the LEDs do not move with the gear shift. P, 4, 3 are always lit. When we pulled the cover we found two very thin black plastic strips about 1.25 cm wide hanging from it. I realize that a new cover is likely needed, but has anyone seen this before...

    So I like to have fun everyonce in a wile and throw it into semi automatic, but one thing I dont like is that I'll be building up speed, not very rapidly, and ill be in third or fourth gear and be at about 3 or 4k it will just shift on its own up 6th gear. Like when i'm going 45 I dont want to...

    Hey guys, So my friend is considering buying a ZHP however he doesn't want a manual transmission and rather have a automatic transmission. Everything else about the car is fine besides that aspect. Would anyone consider swapping their automatic transmission for a manual one instead? Probably a...

    Call me crazy but the radiator i pulled out of my car looks like a manual transmission radiator not the automatic transmission radiator. Automatic 323i 2000. Picture is of old radiator and the new radiator in the box that i bought. Any Idea what this is about??

    I have a 2001 330 ci convertible. Prior to today, I've had no issues with the automatic transmission (car has 133,000 miles). This afternoon, the car starts just fine and shifts into reverse, but will not shift into Drive. I'm at a loss here, as I haven't experienced this issue in the past...

    If you are accelerating hard sometimes you get what feels like clutch chatter in a stick shift car while it shifts from first to second. It is a 2000 328i automatic. I was wondering if this could just be a shift solenoid or if this is a sign the tranny is starting to wear out. Thanks for your help.

    I have searched and found something of interest, but didn't directly answer my question. So here it goes... I have a 1999 323i Automatic. I have taken apart the shifter trim (window switches and gloss black trim) and shifter plastic surround (where the PRND432 & where the manual shifter boot...

    All, I have called a recommended euro car shop in the area and asked how their transmission flush process works. The service guy stated they hook up a machine to both ends of the transmission, start the car and gradually change out the fluid. It is not a high powered flush like other people...

    Long story short, I have an auto transmission and a manual would be waay more fun to drive. So I've been thinking and researching and thinking and researching more, and I believe I have two options: 1) trade-in for a manual car, and 2) 5-spd swap. Unfortunately I now can't trade in for much...

    I heard that using manual mode on an automatic is bad for your transmission. Is this true?
  20. General E46 Forum
    There is probably an old thread about this, but if everyone searched for old threads instead of making new ones, then I'm sure it wouldn't do much good for forum activity. :P Anyway, do you drive a manual or automatic? And why? I drive a manual. Why? Because they're slightly more fuel...
