    Hello there, I am a new owner of a used 2000 e46 which has a m47 engine. The purchase was made a few days ago and everything was fine until the journey home after i bought the car and saw that after filling up the journey used up a lot of fuel which was around (20mpg) whilst driving 80-90mph on...

    Hi guys, this one has me stumped, very confused as to why this is happening. have had poor fuel economy recently and due to increasing fuel comets here in the UK (and elsewhere!) I decided to replace my MAF as I had code for bad MAF. I have just done this no problems. Brand was BOSCH. went to...

I’m making a new post because I haven’t found someone who has had a similar problem. So, I have a 2004 E46 320td Compact with the M47 engine and the 6 speed manual gearbox...

    Hi everyone! Lately my E46 has been low on power. Instead of 180hp, it feels like 60. Around 60 km/h it starts to jiggle and 100 km/h feels like the limit. Recently my transmission went into limp mode (Exclamation cog next to D symbol), but I instantly changed the battery and that fixed it...

    I know this is a little ways off and might seem stupid to some but I plan on importing a 03 330d when they become legal here in the US. This might seem stupid to Europeans on the forum but from reading about the diesel cars I think it would be the perfect thing to buy to be my daily especially...

    Hi! I'm a fresh owner of a 320cd 2005 and lately i've been experiencing some shaking under high load usually in 3rd gear 1900-2500rpm or starting 50-60km/h. Every other gear is ok without any issue. And feels like is under the arm rest. Anyone got an idea what should i look up to?

    Hello, I have an e46 320d 2000. The engine recently clocked 320k. The car generally runs well apart for some oil and coolant leaks here and there. My issue is that, when I rev the car just below the redline, black smoke starts coming out and sometimes the engine shuts off. Similar issue when...

    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 am planning to do big overhaul replace all vacuum lines, o rings, swirl flaps blanks, boost hoses. What would be the best way to clean all the oily/carbon crap from the intake? The other day I cleaned the EGR and it was pretty nasty, so I imagine the intake is gonna look similar. Its 320d...

    My slow sled: 2000 E46 320D touring, 136 horsepower, 5 speed manual trans, 200,000 km. In the past two years the car has had lots of new parts installed but right now the issue is a lack of power. It should have 136HP but feels like 46HP. I replaced the turbo a year ago and the car has been...

    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. If however you ease into the RPM and get above 2K its absolutely fine you have full power. I suspect that...
