    Thought I would start a thread for my E46 M3, it’s a car I’ve always wanted since being a kid going to collect my Dads Brand new at the time 2004 M3 coupe. Titan silver, with black leather. At the time it was the holy grail for me and I felt special sitting in the passenger seat listening to my...

    Hi everyone, I've got something to share, hopefully you find as interesting and fun as I do. Evo Magazine has been doing an excellent Car of the Year (eCoty) competition for many years, and I wanted to see how the E46 M3 fared in its time. I couldn't find any reproductions of the 2001 eCoty...

    After 300 km of driving (Occasionally hard) I sent my oil to Blackstone labs and got the following result back. As you can see the lead is in 20 PPM only after 300km. Would like to hear your comments from anyone with experience. Should I drive the car? Or should I park it? PS -The...

    Hey guys, I have an M3 with 115k miles. I recently replaced the suspension with BC Racing coilovers that came with new N links. I purchased the car with 113k miles and it had a clunking noise, but it was not as present as it is now. With time it got worse. So I that is when I put in the new...

    I have a 2004 E46 M3 SMG that I need help with figuring out how to troubleshoot and fix.

When I hooked up the new battery, my car now has no lights on the...

    I posted a discussion on here the other day because I am looking for a hardtop for my car (I still am) and I got a good amount of private messages giving me offers. I just want to say: if a relatively new account (under a week old) is telling you to email their "friend" don't trust it. I have...
