    I just bought a 2003 BMW 330CI. Beautiful car. Has 83k miles, and it’s always been driven in Southern California. The dude I got it inspected by said that it needs to have the oil pan gasket replaced. Figured that was ~$1,000 job, and for the price of the car, thought it was worth the purchase...

    Yesterday, I installed new rotors and brake pads on my 330i. After lowering the car and taking it for a test drive, I noticed something was wrong. When I turned the car on, it sounded fairly loud especially when I accelerated. The car was also sluggish, and stumbled. I went to go get gas, and it...

    Hey I was wondering if there would be any reason why my car would be draining gas so quickly. I drive a 330i zhp automatic, and roughly use up 1/3 of my gas in 2-3 days without driving much. Is this normal or is there something I should check? I have no lights on the dash too.

    I recently diagnosed a Fuel Sending Unit error after driving around with my fuel gauge on empty for a while. Driver side unit checked out, but the passenger side unit on the fuel pump was reading as bad. Since the pump has been working fine, I didn't want to have to replace it just because of...

    Hi everyone, I am starting to look for a used e46 coupe running on gas and with a manual transmission here in France. At first I was looking for a 330ci but it's difficult to find ones in great shape (i've been looking for 4 months now), given that I'd like to pay less than 9k€ if possible...

    Hey guys. 2003 330xi here. 120k miles. I replaced the fuel FILTER about a year ago, no problems. For the past month or so, when I turn the car on in the morning, I can smell gas. Inside, outside, and around the car. Seems the level of fuel (full/empty tank) does not matter. I changed my Fuel...

    Whenever I start my 2002 325i, there is always a strong gas smell. It goes away after a few minutes but I don't think this is normal. I know my Oxygen Sensor is bad, but I haven't gotten around to repairing it. Any Ideas as to where the gas smell is coming from?

    I just bought a GoPoint BT1 and the Dashcommand app. I was building my custom gauges, one of which is amount of fuel in my tank. I use the module "CALC.FUEL_LEVEL" or in words, "Volume of fuel remaining in tank." However, it seems to never update or register at all. Any ideas why? I know it's in...
  13. E46 XI
    Hello there, I tried searching for this problem via Fanatics and Google and came up short. I have a 330XI with the 5-speed manual trans @ 130K miles - I've had the car for just over two years. No real mods aside from the golf-tee, a K&N filter, a rebuilt DISA valve, and a Dyanvin head unit as...

    I am getting about 24-27 mpg with a moderately aggressive driving style, and have used 1/4 of a tank in the past week. Guessing that I would have to fill up about once a month for about $60 and spend about $700 or so a year on gas. Is this good or bad or what? I think it is but i'm not sure.
