    Hey guys, I'm wanting to know if anyone has had any experience with a shop in the Northern Virginia area to do a CSL Airbox install and tune. Also want to know if the set up from the shop still allows emissions communications and subsequently pass emissions testing. Thanks for the help!

    Hi everybody I have a 02 m3 smg with 110k miles. The other day it gave me a AE code it’s something fuel related. What can cause that because it can’t be a fuel pump cause it’s only related to cylinder 1-3.

    I have an 01 m3, my rear brakes are intermittently locking along with DSC pressure sensors 1 & 2 codes. Did some research and its seems like the code dosnt cause the problem im having. What could be causing them to stick if it isnt the pressure sensors? I attached a pic of my brake circuit...

    I have an e46 M3 that I keep in dry storage. Yesterday I took it out for a gentle run to get heat through the block & chassis. I pulled up outside the garage and turned the engine off to open the door. When I restarted the vehicle, I could hear a strange noise so switched the engine off. I then...

    I recently finished a rebuilding my vanos system on my 02 smg m3 and I was wondering how do you test it to make sure it was done perfectly?
  10. E46 M3
    I am experiencing a weird sound from my smg m3. It started after I put headers in the car. The car runs fine but on cold start you start hearing a wining/whistling sound (old horror moving screams) that goes away if the car warms up or if you give the car sudden gas. It comes from the engine...

    Looking for some assistance regarding possible Vanos issues. I have an 01 m3 and I recently refreshed my vanos unit with Beisan System seals. I did not have any codes so i did not get a new vanos solenoid pack. I also did not go with the Beisan Systems oil pump disk and instead opted for the...

    It's me again, folks - sorry, I seem to have all the issues in the world... FYI, 2002 M3 Vert 6-speed here. Unfortunately, went through rough patch of road today and definitely felt the underside scratching the surface. I later ran an eye test underneath and didn't see anything wrong, except...

    Hello forum (seems like all the posts I started are about issues)! Owner of a 2002 E46 M3 convertible here. I noticed some squeaky sound from the rear left corner of the car, particularly when I turn right while the car leans left and when going over some bumpier roads. The squeaky sound will...

    Just recently bought my E46 M3 vert (hooray!) While driving at night, I can't seem to tell the distance between myself and cars behind, because the rear window (after the top is up) seems to be blurring out headlights from traffic behind. Is this normal? What would be the fix? Thanks guys!

    Hello all, 1st post. We stripped a fully functional 2002 E46 M3 to convert it for endurance racing and as part of the year long build we added an ATL fuel cell. The cell sits on the trunk floor and the supply, return and vent lines (all steel braided) connect to the top of the cell. (Supply is...

    I recently noticed when I place my foot lightly on the clutch pedal of my E46 M3, I feel a repetitive subtle click as the engine is running. It increases in frequency as the revs increase and feels almost like a pulse. I listened carefully to the engine with the hood open, the click I feel...
