    Hey everyone just wandering what the best option for a replacement key would be after mine refuses to start the car. Preferably don't want to fork out a ton of money for a bmw one so if anyone has any recommendations it would be greatly appreciated.

    Hey All: So new week, new problem :p My set of keys to my e46 died (or so I think) usually I put the key into the ignition and the car doesn't start whatsoever. So most of the time I sit in my car turning the key on and off for anywhere from 3 turns to 5-10min. The car always eventually...

    Hey, thanks to one of the previous owners, my ignition key, which used to unlock and lock the car via the keyfob, is cut differently from the key that is meant for the car and matches the VIN. Currently, the ignition key is dead. I have cut it open and replaced the battery in the past with...

    I was going to change my plugs and I know it's recommended to replace the spark plug boot at the same time BUT I can't find the boots anywhere online that fit my car. When I find boots on FCP Euro it says they only fit up to 02 325i's. And that's the exact same Bremi boot on autohausaz where...

I have found nothing about which wire to spice into, best I've found is what I believe to be the starter wire (blue and...

    Hey guys. So six months ago I purchased my first bmw, a 2002 e46 325ci with 110k miles. It came with a lot of issues that I've been sorting out, but I cannot solve this misfire. Basically, if you go over 3500rpm in any gear and hold the rpm constant for 5 to 10 seconds, it misfires and CEL pops...

    Hey guys, So I bought this 12 year old e46 saloon a few months ago, and within a couple of months the key fob died on me. I tried replacing the fob battery but that didn't work, so I got a new key off the local bmw dealer (£140 whoop-whoop). -From here on I'll refer to that one as "the new...

    So I've been trawling forums for weeks now trying to pinpoint my E46's starting problem. It's a 316i SE 1.8 with 97k serviced in January that most times has problems starting, it cranks fine but won't start and will take 2 to 4 times before starting. Some days it's fine and will start others...
