  1. E46 M3
    Hi everyone I’m new to posting on this but I’ve owned different BMW for almost 10 years. I bought a 2004 M3 in March 2021 and it was a auto to manual conversion. I am not 100% sure this is the reason of the problem I am having but I am hoping someone can help me. Basically when I am driving at...

    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?

    Hey guys, I’ve been looking around for doing a m3 bumper conversion on my 2005 Bmw 325i. I know that there are some posts about this already but I wasn’t able to find enough information to exactly know if the m3 bumper will fit on my vehicle and didn’t want to spend a few hundred dollars on a...

    I bought my e46 330i a few months ago as a project...the car came with a set of xenon headlights that were brand new but when I attempted to install them I found the smaller connector that goes into the control module is not there. I'm assuming it would be a connector that came in xenon-equipped...

    Hello all, I need the blue and red google docs spreadsheets for MS42 to MS43 but all the links are dead in the old posts. Trying to run an S52 with MS43 in an MS42 equipped car. I have the MDK to EDK (throttle body) and throttle pedal pinouts figured out but other than those are there any pins...

    Over the past six months I have been going through the process of building a 2004 330ci to OEM+ specs. I started with a dirt cheap M56 325ci with a bad motor, and went from there. A lot the the information I had to figure out or find for myself, and thought that I would share what I've learned...

    I have the manual fan (w clutch) in my car. I’ve heard many great stories about swapping it over to electric and deleting the front aircon fan. I have a Behr Fan on order but it has a long leadtime... parts store in UK (eurocarparts) has an EIS brand fan.. little bit more expensive. Anyone...

    I'm just finishing up my 04 coupe project and I'm having a transmission/TCM issue hopefully someone can help me out with. The car is an 04 sulev M56 car. I bought it with a bad engine (no compression on #5). It ran rough but was able to drive on the trailer and around the driveway. No...

    Hi, I am planning to strip down a 330d from England and send out all the parts in a crate to Ontario where I plan to convert my 02 330i to a 330d. I spent a summer in the UK driving a 330d and this is the car that made me fall in love with the e46. I love my car but I've always wanted the diesel...

    Hello all, I'm researching and doing my homework with the intention of attempting to do the 6MT swap myself (from what I've read/seen, and the projects I've completed myself on this and my other car, I believe I should be able to handle this). As such, I'm far from done and my plan is to have...

    I got into an accident a little while back and destroyed one of my factory bi-xenons and i don't want to spend that much money on a headlight. I was looking at spyder angel eyes but dont know if they will work or how to make them work. Will they just plug and play on a factory xenon car? I have...

    When looking for a fan for the mechanical to electric fan conversion, I wasn't able to find anything about the Cool Xpert fan. So I decided to take some picture and post them here. The fan is made by Cool Xpert, and is a replacement for BMW part # 17117561757. Unfortunately, I still don't have...

    So to start off, I have a 2001 330 convertible Auto. It's in decent condition at around 135k miles. Just need to deal with this evil upper radiator hose :evil: that won't seat on properly, but then it will be good to go again. My old car was a manual, and nowadays I'm really missing to fun of...

    Hey guys, I've been searching the internet and this forum for some answers but have been coming up short. I keep finding conversion guides for sedans but the coupes are much different. I drive a 2000 328ci and purchased a replica M3 bumper for the front. I removed the OEM bumper and separated...

    Hello to all, Over the last few months, during what little time I get on r'n'r from work, I have been working on an SMG to manual conversion on my E46 M3. I have completed all of the mechanical work, but on completion of our attempt at wiring, the car wont start. Cluster lights up as per the...
  18. DIY: Do It Yourself
    Hi folks, this is my first thread here. So, recently I went through a misery, I could not find any responsible threads/DIY's for this conversion, so I started investigating: lots of PN's and stuff (thanks BMWFans.info and ECSTuning) I chose OEM, I don't trust replica bumpers. Loose fit...
