    Hey guys, so yeah I decided to start this and post the progress of my drift build, I wanted initially an E46 330 Black Coupe Manual and I got exactly that but I’m unsure if I made the right decision with the car as it looks it’s been too abused. Anyway I was tired of just looking and waiting for...
  2. Engine Swaps
    Hey guys, so I’m in LA and 2-3 months now I search for a decent e46 330 coupe 2D with not crazy mileage. Apparently it’s difficult to find so I was thinking is it worthy to go 325 or 328 and swap on a 330 motor or something else? I want to make a drift car.

    Hi all! I have just acquired my e46 323i manual convertible and starting my drift build, so far I have found so much useful info here and was hoping to get some specific help on the diff. so, if I’m right I have a 3.07 ratio medium case (188) diff? I want to get a shorter ratio to get more...

    My clutch is not disengaging. I'm pretty sure it is stuck on the flywheel as I fried it trying to do a burnout. Already replaced the slave cylinder and it was broken off. Anyways, I am replacing my clutch. I want to be able to slide my daily. Nothing major like going to drift events, but around...

    Hi everyone, this is my first post and I apologize for making a new thread but I couldn't find what I was looking for. I would like to know if it is possible to run a dual caliper setup without removing the factory parking brake. I was looking into the SLG or Chase Bays dual caliper kit but they...
  7. E46 M3
    Is there a way to reprogram the DSC software so that its not such a buzzkill? I love my 2002 M3 and appreciate the electronic nanny that kicks in every now and then, but dang- it feels way too immediate and brute. Any ECU flash/mods to address this? Thank you!

    Hello i have a E46 320Ci, daily drifter which im soon going to engine swap and turbo. I wonder if it's possible to remove the AC condenser + most of the lines but keep the heating function, basicly removing all the cold part of the AC, but keep the heating because i need it to defrost my...

    Sorry in advance if I posted in the wrong forum. :hi: I took my 323ci for a fun day at a wet skidtrack, disabled DSC and it slid quite easily and was a lot of fun despite being a open diff automatic. I left it in steptronic mode the whole day and had one downside which was quite annoying when...

    So I've finally decided the time has come too turn my beloved e46 328i into a drift car. Some will wonder why but I'm not here too talk about that! I would love just some guidance on where I can get legit brackets to replace the dust shield and Run twin calipers on the rear for a hydro setup...

    G'day boys and girls! Continued from this thread right here, I will be putting my E46 on the road, but I'm also doing a closed-course drift skills day in about a months' time. e46fanatics has been an amazing source of information, so just wondering if anyone here has done the following things...

    G'day from Australia! So I recently picked up an E46 323i manual for next to nothing. I was owed a few favours from a mate, he was setting off for a round Australia trip and needed this E46 out of his driveway. I've done lots of motorbike mechanical work for him and he gave me this in exchange...

    Here's a detailed comprehensive video i made on how to assemble the differential in a non-m case. In this video i reassemble using an aftermarket Limited Slip diff 1.5way. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PEJEDEC2CkU

    Hello, I recently bought a 2003 BMW E46 330ci. My main goal is to build the car for drifting. One of my main worries is the engine. Is the engine tough enough to be bashed for a whole drift-event. If the stock engine is not good enough what are the known mods made to those cars for it to last. I...

    There's a bit of a backstory to get you guys up to speed so please bear with me. I have a 2001 325Ci 5 speed (living in the U.S.) that I purchased from a guy that originally bought the car in Canada (speedo is in kilometers). Instead of having a DSC button, there is an ASC button. Now there is a...
