    Having a little trouble getting the 2001 330Ci started. I have finished the entire manual conversion and am just down to the wiring and clutch line. I have wired the clutch switch in (1 wire to the DME, another wire to ews, and other 2 two wires tapped into the power and ground on brake switch)...

    Hi all, I’m in the process of building an e46 track car and need to purchase a new propshaft for a 330d gearbox to 330 differential. However, I’m having a hard time finding a manual propshaft. I have seen that there is plenty of propshaft from 330 auto boxes. Can I use a propshaft from an...

    So I have a 2003 325i. It is 07/2003 meaning that the S5D 250G-TAJT transmission comes from factory on it. I am in the works of a manual swap but now have remembered that the transmission I bought was from a 2005 325i which is the S5D 250G-TBDS. Will the 05 transmission work with my 03 325i...

    I have a 2006 330CI ZHP with a 6 speed and I keep hearing this annoying tinny sorta metal scratchy noise coming from the car. My clutch isn't worn out or slipping. It catches just fine and doesn't give me any issues. I can't pinpoint where the sound is coming from since it only happens when I'm...

    I have a manual transmission (124k miles). Due to Covid I had to isolate for 10 days and today was the first time I moved the car. Car started up just fine put it in gear 1 and when I was moving off it made a weird grinding sound. It only happens the 1st time and never again. I know my clutch is...

    05 330xi Hello sorry if this has already been asked. I looked at a few topics but I'm not sure which part to replace first, I ran the INPA test and the fan powers on fine but not at startup like it's supposed to and at idle it overheats after like 15 minutes or so. The thermostat seems to work...

    Hey everyone, after a few years of casually looking for a manual 3 series coupe, I found a pretty well taken care of example. Dealer serviced for most of its life but at nearly 180k mi., It is definitely in need of some work, front control arms, tires, alignment, stock struts, shocks and...

    Hello, I'm Alex. I have a 2000 323CI with the 5 speed that I picked up from a buddy. I got it as a project car that I plan on having fun with and maybe doing the 24 hours of Lemons with in a year or so. I'll try and post updates as I go and I'll definitely be asking for help since this is my...

    Hello, and thank you for welcoming me into this community. Before you ask, yes I looked through the forums and tried to find the answers for this problem. So let's get into it. I have a 2000 323CI manual and I'm having an issue with the speedo not working. It also has 5 codes. P0500, P1510...

    Preface Overall, this is just a long writeup of my personal experience 6 speed swapping my 2004 330xi. This won't cover anything about the ‘how to’ as there are very good write ups by other users on this forum and others. However, If anyone is going through the swap now or just has questions...

    Hello everyone, I have a slight problem..... Currently my BMW 325ci has a lot of slop sideways in gears 1-4. Gear 5 and reverse don't seem to have this issue as much probably because they are used less? There is a slight up and down movement as well. I have been doing some research and I...

    Hi All, Wondering if anyone has knowledge on interchange issues with Getrag gearboxes between E46 models. My 323i is in the shop with a trans specialist due to jumping out of 1st gear on takeoff. Box has now been pulled & dismantled, and I have been advised is not economic to repair due to...
