    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...

    Hi! I really need some help. I've got a 2005MY 320D, which, about a month ago wouldn't start. I towed it to my local BMW workshop to have the problem identified, and after a while they told me that the pre-supply fuel pump was faulty and needed replacing. Being young and a student, naturally I...

    Hi Everyone, I have an weird problem with my 330D. If give the car more than 50 odd % throttle below 2000 rpm you get this weird screeching or almost what sounds like to me stalling sound.
