  1. E46 Introductions
    Last week I purchased a 1999 328i. Today I try to figure out what my options are as I have a horrible case of subframe mounting fractures. When I test drove the car it honestly drove good but just had a clunk coming from the rear, I haggled the price down quite a bit and decided to gamble on it...
  2. E46 Touring
    So i’ve been annoyed by this for some time: when im above lets say 3000 rpm i get lots of vibration coming from the rear wheels. My local mechanic said its because of the angle the wishbones, steering rods and rear left and right driveshaft have due to the extreme lowering. Does anyone has...

    Hi all, Recently started to have some issues shifting gears when at a standstill, originally this was only apparent when cold but recently it happens regardless of engine temp. Following some of the other threads online I changed the tranny oil using a 50/50 mix of redline mtl & d4 atf oil...

    So as many of you know, when I installed new FCAB's in my car back in August of 2016, I got a violent steering wobble. $1300 ($760 excluding wheel+tire purchase) later, I'm a rack away from having peace. That being said, I've seen every suspension issue first hand, and how to find each of them...

    I'm getting a muffled sounding vibration from the rear end at highway speeds . Not very violent at the moment but don't want to wait long . Also , when the car is cold and you put it in drive and especially reverse then hit the brakes I'm getting a grinding metal on metal noise. It sounds very...

    Hello all, I have a slightttt problem. I've done tons of reading but still couldn't find anything. So, I installed FK Coilovers (Just the fronts) (non adjustable dampening, and not aligned yet), and experienced this weird ticking noise. :banghead: It's not heavy enough to be considered a...

    Hi All I have a 2005 330ci with a UUC lightweight Flywheel and clutch. The kit only has about 55,000KM on it and it's starting to slip pretty bad the last couple of weeks. I don't have a supercharger or Turbo on the car and i only track it couple times a year, so there is no way that it could...

    Hey, so I've been wanting a bimmer for a long time, and was finally able to purchase an Automatic 1999 323i E46 as of last month or so, it runs and drives, but poorly. I knew that when I bought this I was pretty much buying a project car, but that's fine, as I am young and wanting to learn a...

    I've had my D99 for a couple months now. I had to re-install the ROM multiple times just to get the WiFi function to work and 2 more times after that before it would successfully download and install apps. Currently apps install but will not launch (and have never launched as this is the first...
