    Hello, can anyone tell me what these ground points are for? What systems are grounded at these points? I have pictures below.
  2. Engine Swaps
    I’ve been driving my 2000 323i Manual for a while now, still only at 110,000 miles but I know I’m not gonna want to let it go once it’s engine life is over. Been looking into EV conversions and haven’t seen much done on e46’s, is it possible/ worth it? Anyone have tips on who to talk to about...

    2003 325i I went to get a new driver's side tire, and they tried jacking up the car where the jack point has clearly been rusted to shit. Heard some crunching, then they jacked it up from the frame. After this my driver's seat adjustment, heated seat, and wipers all stopped working. All the...

    I have a Bosch Cooling Fan Control Module (1 137 328 115) that works on E46s. It is a Gen 2 type (latest) from a 2003 Ford Crown Victoria. It has no signs of corrosion and has tested out ok on my 2001. This should work well, if you have a 2001 to 2006 E46 (manjual or automatic) with a Bosch...

    Hi everyone, thanks for taking the time. I've got a crazy list of things happening, and when I took it to the shop, my mechanic (who i do trust) told me it's going to cost a lot because he's gotta find what's wrong. I thought I'd post the list here and get some thoughts from you. 2004 325CI...

    Alright, so the auxiliary electric fan on my M is rattling around. It's bad enough to cause noises in the cabin with the windows up. From what I can tell, the fan is still in one piece but there is play in the motor allowing it to wobble when in use. It needs replaced. So the question is, could...

    Hello All, This will be my first post on this site. I recently purchased a 2005 e46 for my wife. She was a little neglected but thankfully not abused, and with only 80k, I felt she was worth the investment. I've gone through pretty much the whole car but the passenger mirror has stumped me. I...

    Recently bought a used 2004 330 with 100k. 1 owner with tons of maintenance records. I think what's happening might be my doing (and that all manner of sucks!). What I did: There was the dreaded AC stink in the car, so after doing TONS of research I took everything out down to the blower motor...

    Looking for a fan control module, at least I think that's what it's called. It's the Grey box on the fan housing of the electric fans. Mine has some weird stuff in it, looks like it exploded on the inside and my fan hasn't worked in a while. Thank you for looking.

    Hi guys, I have an 00 323Ci and when I got it it need ed the cooling system replaced. So I replaced it and the fan to. Sadly I think I went with an afterror market replacment. The problem I'm having is that it never turns on. Not when I turn ac on or when it gets hot. I checked the fuses today...

    This will be my first DIY project! I need a bit of help. I did find a couple of guides but they weren't very helpful in removing the old alternator and installing a new one. If possible, can someone give me directions or point me in the direction of a guide with pics on the removal\installation...

    Hello All, I have a question regarding electric seats in my 328Ci. Currently I have the electric seats including memory function installed from factory. So I have all the needed original wiring installed. But.. here is my question: I want to change my factory electric seats for the BMW...

    Hi, After browsing the forums for a few months, the time has come for my first post; before I start I should say I have looked everywhere for a solution to my problem. When I locked my car and held the button to fold the mirror, the passenger side mirror did not fold. I unlocked the car and...

    I got a new key shell cut today. Blade works perfectly, but I am confused. When I move the circuit board into the new housing, it doesn't work, but when i put it back into the old key, it works. Any body have some ideas? The transponder chip is on the circuit board, so I know that it's not...

    So i've been searching around for crazy engine swaps, I love my M54B30, but want a future project. I've seen the S54 converts, and LS1s, it pains me to think of a GM engine in a Bimmer... but WTF (sorry //LS1) saw the driftworks M5 V10 for the M3 (Phil Morrison is a G!) and even an attempt at an...

    Hi there I am new to the forums and a new BMW owner. I purchased an '05 E46 325Ci Sport a few days ago and it has all the features I want except the electric/auto folding mirrors. I was wondering if anyone knew of a very detailed step by step guide to installing these? I have electrically...

    Hi, I have an '00 330i. I think I have some sort of centre console electrical issue going on. The cigarette lighter socket is dead, and also, I have no backlighting for the transmission positions (i.e. P,R,N,D). However, the +/- backlighting of the tiptronic side of the box does work...
