    Hey gang! My 2001 330ci with 215k has developed a nagging issue: I can feel that there is power going through the tranny when I've got the clutch at it's stop. For example, when I am at a light and about to proceed, I push the shifter (against some resistance) into gear and I can feel my diff...

    The Car: Manual 2001 330ci So I was driving home tonight, stopped at a stop sign, and all of the sudden the car wouldn't go into gear. I could flop the shifter all around and none of the gears would grab. I called up my dad for some quick advice and he thinks it might be a broken linkage. I'm...

    Purchasing 4.10s :excited:, and am looking for a shop to install them. I've heard good things about both Bimmersport and RMP Motors in Toronto. Has anyone had gearsets installed there (or somewhere else) and/or can comment? Thanks

    Hi- Over the last few months, it has become harder and harder to get my E46 into gear. The problem used to be only first gear and if I just released and re-engaged the clutch or I put it in 2nd then moved to first... it would go in fine. Now. the problem affects all gears 1-5. The only one that...

    I have a 99 328i with an auto tranny. It seems to be stuck in first gear when the temp of the car is low. In other words if the needle isnt in the middle of the gauge the gears dont kick in. After the car warms up, the gears kick in and the car is back to normal. Other times the...

    Ok the other night Friday to be precise was just about to reverse into a spot to park the car when I heard I snap and the gear stick went limp and was wafting about all over the place. Car was stuck in 1st gear at this point, and when moved you could hear a rattle. Finally got it to a garage...

    Can anyone recommend a reputable NY area shop that does work on differentials? I would buy the ring and pinion set along with the installation kit and take it to a good shop to have them rebuild my differential. If anyone in the NY area has changed their gearing please help me out. Thank you...
