    Alright all, I’m at a loss. After nearly 10 hours at the JBLM auto hobby shop, I still wasn’t able to get a set of headers in. It seemed like a relatively straight forward job, but it all came down to a single bolt on each section that I couldn’t access. So here’s the question, do any of you...

    Hello Everyone, I recently installed the AVIN Avant 4 and it’s truly one of the best upgrades I’ve made to my M3 thus far. I also made an install video to detail the process to help any of you thinking of getting one yourself. I walk through installing the rear view camera, relocation bracket...

    Now tools like OBD Fusion and PA Soft might all be part of your arsenal for an e46 but there are times when neither of these will do the job. Good examples are Brake Module replacements, or Steering Angle Sensor calibrations. This is why every e46 owner needs a working copy of dealer level...

    Two problems: Battery got drained overnight. Not sure why and unit is connected in the way it should (tuner connection to harness). Thoughts? How do I best route the extension cable from the trunk to the back side rails? On coupes, verts, limos it can be done through the back seat - not...
  5. ///M3 Forum
    Hi, I'm looking to pull the trigger on coilovers, camber plates, and rear LCAs for my '04 M3. The shop I've been using for most of my work (subframe reinforcement, etc.), K3S motorsports, is really fantastic, but I'd like to save some money and gain the experience and knowledge from doing it...

    So I currently have an issue whereby Iv broken the expansion tank mount where the ET top hangar is meant to hang on to. Could this be the reason why I can't seem to get the Expansion tank to seat no matter how hard I push down ?

    So this weekend my friend and I tackled installing the BMW Performance Shift Lever. After many forums searches, youtube videos, and google searched we thought we knew everything in order to successfully install the part. We thought wrong! NONE has mentioned the part of the install that...
  8. DIY: Do It Yourself
    Here's the DIY for my reverse camera install in a 2002 330i sedan. Like my other ventures into e46 repair, my car has several manufacturing differences, so I hope this can help someone out who faced the same difficulties as I did. This is a long DIY, but I didn't want to miss a step along the...

  11. DIY: Do It Yourself
    Hi all, Not sure if anyone has installed air suspension into their E46s and found it difficult to come across any guidance on the web. I have installed Airlift struts with Accuair elevel management and have a write up on it. Just wanted to know if anyone else was keen for it, or if it's not...

    Hi all. I'm brand new to the forums. I've been lurking around here for about a year now. I've owned 2 e46's First was a 2001 325i. After that one was rear ended by a driver on his cell phone, I picked up a 2003 325i. This one has a few upgrades, most notably the Harmon Kardon Sound System. Thing...

    I have an '02 330Ci Dinan3 with the HK stereo system. I've never been happy with the sound quality overall, but I've never been able to justify spending thousands to replace the whole system. Now the subwoofer has gone bad (I assume it's the sub's amp that is shot). Anyway, I have a 10"...

    So Monday (9/23/13) I finally received my AA Stage 1 Supercharger Kit. After a year long debate I finally decided I wanted to go Forced Induction vs NA with this car and after a lot of research the AA kit seemed to fit my needs the best. I was able to speak with Viral at AA and he set me up...

    Hey, I bought an HSD coilover kit for my '02 325i from BavAuto. No installation instructions whatsoever in the boxes. I have found lots of posts, but no real installation details (the HSD website is a total waste of time with no product support!). My biggest sticking point is the rear spring...
