  1. E9x Keyless Entry/start (PassiveGo) Retrofit for E46

    Lighting & Mobile Electronics (I.C.E.)
    Man, I've had this for years. I admire the optimism I had as a teenager. I just graduated college and need to downsize and this is a project I've come to terms that I'll never complete. I’m selling my Keyless Entry kit from an E9x to go into an E46. Yes, this is a real thing. Proof: and...

    General E46 Forum
    I recently purchased a 2000 BMW 323i with sport-preminum package. I have both of the fob remotes and one of the remotes is having problems communicating with the car.
