  1. UK E46 cosmetic upgrade project

    Chapter 1: An Introduction Hi I'm Aero. I got my 20 year-old E46 in November 2022. It was near perfect and a super smooth ride with 49k miles on the clock. The defects were a slight dent to the driver side door and the rear-right rain gutter (moulding) was detached. My plan was to slowly work on...

    Hey all, looking to get a set of castles headers installed in my beam machine. Does anyone know of a shop in WA that can do it for a reasonable price? And before the DIY gang gets on me, yes, I tried and it took me 9 hours to realize this isn’t a job I can do.

    My brother has finally handed down his prize possession (for a fee of course) and I was wondering what I should be doing first when I receive it. Oil change and checking the fluids is a must. I would like to get 19" CSL replicas, and trade in the existing 17" racing rims. Maybe add a...

    Hey guys! Firstly, this thread isn't because I have $20k. So we can skip those lectures. I thought I'd start this thread for good discussion on the pros and cons of each chassis and if the downsides of the Non-M can be made up with a little modding (to a degree). You can get a clean non-M for...

    I have a 2003 e46, and the radio was made in November 02. PART NUMBER 65. 12-6 921 963 I know that my radio is not Aux capable, and that it will only process iPod data and is Sirius radio capable. HOWEVER, I am wondering if there is any way around this? For those electrically savvy, is...

    PROBLEM: I'm always listening to music or podcasts when I drive. I use my iPhone 5, but there's never really been a good, convenient, affordable solution to this. Bluetooth's theoretically perfect, but the sound quality's never been up to my standards. Auxiliary sounds great, but you lose any...

    I've got an 01 325i. Had it for a while, love the car. Looking to upgrade the performance on it a bit, anyone have any suggestions on exactly where to start? If I had the money, I'd say screw it and just get an M3, but I don't unfortunately. Love this car though like I said, i suppose it has...
