    General E46 Forum
    Hey folks, So this is my first post, and I didn't think it was going to be a review of something that I hate, but here we go. I have an 03 325i- no other mods other than a UUC lightweight flywheel, and hotchkiss swaybars (so nothing that changes noise from stock). After reading endlessly...
  3. CCV Delete Consensus?

    General E46 Forum
    Hey Everyone - if there's a "definitive" answer that everyone can agree on somewhere, by all means, please point me there. That being said, I've done a reasonable amount of searching on CCV deletes and have found a fair amount of opinion, and a number of DIY jobs, but no generally accepted best...
