    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...

    In general, is there a common mileage at which transfer cases start to have problems and what are the problems? I'm considering replacing my cracked transfer case with 126k miles with a transfer case with 183k miles. If it's worth installing, what components should I replace before installing?

    Hi guys, my e46 320i manual has had a terrible lurch when coming off and on the throttle. It’s worse in low gears but still there a bit in 4th and 5th. I also find that when trying to crawl forward in 1st gear, the car quite violently bounces forward and back when you so much as even touch the...

    Before starting I have a high mileage e46 at 180k miles and I’ve changed the manual transmission fluid before hand with redline. I was pulling out of my neighborhood and I sort of got on it, I wasn’t peeling out but definitely moving. Going into second the car jerked and thudded really loud. It...

    Hey guys. So I recently got a used trans from a 2005 330cic 6 speed manual for my 2004 325ci automatic. When I went to install it, the trans fit perfectly but when it got to the driveshaft I noticed that the first half of the drive shaft (which was the only thing I got sent for buyer) didn’t...

    Hi all, I've been looking to buy an E46 for a while and have come across this 2003 318Ci (PETROL) MANUAL SE 2 door. Its got 107156 miles on it and is going for £1500. The price is somewhat ok for a dealer and the bodywork is in great condition so the only worry is the mechanical state. It...

    Hey guys I'm hoping some of you can help me out here. I'm swapping a new engine into my car and I get started on removing the transmission. All the bolts are out, the tranny is loose and can turn all the way around. I can pull it about 3 inches from the engine, but that's as far as it goes. No...
