    They really need to come out with some turbo kits for the 3 series :cry: like "nice" ones. AA, Dinan and so on... maybe if we ***** about it enough they'll make it. Or is there a good reason as to why its always superchargers for our cars?

    I was driving on my way to NY when my car began losing pressure at the gas pedal and spraying tons of white smoke from the exhaust. By the time we could pull over she was in the red. When I popped the hood there was oil and coolant all over the place. The top radiator hose had popped off and the...

    I have a completely stock 2000 323i with about 82k miles on it and for about the first 10 minutes or so after its been cold I can hear a sort of rattle from the engine, it sounds kinda like a really really quiet diesel engine and I cant really tell where its coming from, I really doubt its...

    Would running a blower at around 8.5 psi drastically reduce the life of an engine or would it only make it wear a little faster, obviously not being red lined 50 times a day and being properly maintained. Also just out of curiosity, which engine would be able to handle more, the m52 or m54? Is...

    Hey guys! While driving my 2004 330ci on some errands about a week ago, I was going down a familiar street when I noticed that my car seemed to be losing power. Out of nowhere, I got the oil light on my dash, to which it quickly disappeared. I thought "hmm, that's strange." The car drove fine...

    Does anyone know a good place to get some motor mounts? Mine are more than likely shot and need to be replaced.

    This weekend I decided to change my spark plugs so I looked over the DIY and found some great instructions and thank you for posting that. However, I have a M56 engine and I believe that the last (6th) spark plug if farther back in the engine bay than a M54 engine. My question is, how in the...

    I've got two unrelated questions: 1. Today I was driving up a very steep one lane road, and had to stop to let another car go by. I started to go up again, letting out the clutch and all that, but the engine died. It lugged pretty bad, and I may have rolled backwards with the clutch out. It...
