  1. General E46 Forum
    I have a 330Ci vert that I don't use a lot, battery is dead and I am deciding between buying a normal group 94 battery or an AGM. From what I researched, I didn't find enough information about AGM batteries with E46 verts. I read that they have an special "anti-vibration" setup; which got me...
  2. New Member Introductions
    Gooood Morning, Stumbled across this forum in my search for ALLL the knowledge of BMW's. I stayed up most of the night scrolling through a lot of the discussions. I just gotta say, this place seems like a BMW owners HEAVEN. On that note...I don't own a BMW....YET... I'm actually in the middle of...
  3. Suspension & Braking
    Hi all. I recently purchased an H & R Touring Cup Kit for my 2004 325i convertible w/o factory sport package. H & R says this kit would lower the car 1.3" F and 1.2" R. I think the kit lowered the car even more, like maybe 2.0" F and R. Needless to say, bumps and dips in the road are an issue...

    I am thinking of purcahsing an E46 M3. Here is a picture of the under carriage of a 2003 E46 convertible taken from the rear of the car. I'm not sure if that's oil on the bottom of the differential cover (?) - do you see anything wrong? Apologies but just have this one picture to share.

    My new purchase
  10. E46 Convertible
    What part is broken so I can order that first? Thanks in advance to anyone who has the time to reply. Rehabbing my daughter's new 2001 E46 330ci vert has so many priorities that I haven't taken on the power top yet. But Spring is Coming....
  11. Exterior
    Looking to buy a hardtop for my '06 M3, located in Houston but I would be willing to drive as long as its around 5 or 6 hours. If not, I would gladly pay for shipping. Tired of dealing with scammers, no i will NOT email your "friend" that has one.
  12. ///M3 Forum
    Hi Beamer Fanatics! So, I'm totally new to this forum and new to BMWs. I'm looking to purchase an BMW in the near future - but I have no idea of one model over another. This forum focuses on M3s, right, and M4s and M5s are also fine models. I have no idea how I'd go about choosing between these...
  13. E46 Convertible
    My center console was wearing so I decided to replace it over the weekend. When I pulled the arm rest and everything out. I noticed a cable that wasn’t plugged into anything. I moved it next to the rear ash tray light cable. See pics attached!

    Hi all, I have a 2004 E46 convertible with the GM transmission. We have been tracking down a tranny fluid leak and it appears to be coming from the connection between the tranny Oil Cooler and the hose that goes to the Transmission. There are O-Rings in there that are likely the source of...
  16. E46 Convertible
    Hello fellow E46 lovers, A few days ago, I ran into the dreaded convertible top motor clicking when trying to latch all the way open or closed. I was afraid I would have to spend hundreds to fix this issue or just say screw it and drive with the top up until next year. However, I found a hack...
  17. ///M3 Forum
    I posted a discussion on here the other day because I am looking for a hardtop for my car (I still am) and I got a good amount of private messages giving me offers. I just want to say: if a relatively new account (under a week old) is telling you to email their "friend" don't trust it. I have...
  18. ///M3 Forum
    Hi! I am looking for a hardtop for my ‘06 M3. I know there are a couple on ebay but those prices are way too outrageous. 2.5k+ for a beat up hardtop that I will have to paint correct and fix the headliner and paint. Not only that but shipping is another $800. No thanks. I am located in Texas...
  19. E46 Convertible
    Hello everyone, I just purchased my first german vehicle, which is my 2004 BMW 325CI Convertible. The top unfortunately does not go down and I have been doing research on what issues it could be. The red light is blinking and when I press the down button I can hear the motor trying to work...

I purchased from original owner with 3400 miles. New tires brakes and battery. DSC/ABS Module replaced a couple years ago. Just spent 2k on AC...
