    When I first turn my 330CI on it turns on fine but no matter what gear I'm in if I'm below 2500 RPMS I have to use quarter throttle otherwise the car starts to lose revs and the car starts to shutter. After about 5-10 minutes, however, the car goes into limp mode. When I turn the car off and...

    Hi, I drive a 2005 325xi w/ 66k miles and recently there has been a loud thud coming from the driver side engine bay. The noise lasts about a minute after I turn off the car and thud’s about every 2-3 seconds. I’m not sure if this is related or not but my steering wheel has been shaking...

    First post so bear with me... 330ci The strange thing is that with the switch set to either side the controls only adjust the driver-side mirror. You'd think with the switch set to the driver side that would work and switched to passenger mirror nothing would happen but no, still driver-side...

    So, I blew my brake booster check valve for my 01 325i (auto), and had to pull the intake to replace it, I already knew the process for getting it out and all, so everything goes fine. Then after everything is back together and connected, I try to start it, and it doesn't start. So I remove all...

    So I just bought 99' 318i with 222k on the clock. The overall look of the car seems very good. Interior is a bit dirty and near tires I can see that there was rust which was fixed with some kind of rust paste repair kit. Now this is my second car and Im not a car guy at all so I just blindly...

    Hey guys, Case is i have had a engine light for a few months now on my 2000 E46 323i, The code is: P0173 "Fuel Trim, Bank 2 - Malfunction" I've been trying to figure it out, and think that I've narrowed it down to a vacuum leak. (Did a smoke test, and smoke came out, however I've yet to...

    Hey everyone! Ok so, my 323ci has started making some clunking noises from the front left tire. I have coilovers and they have been on the car since I bought it. Recently I got told by a inspector that the front left coilover was leaking a little, but that it was nothing to be concerned about...

    Hi All- After a few years of having a random passenger side mirror - would land in random spots after Reverse dip - it turned out that it was a pinched ribbon and that a door panel re-attach was the fix. Now, sadly ... it seems to have crapped out completely. Here are the facts: 1. No...

    Hi guys. I have a strange problem with folding mirrors on my 1999 E46 Coupe. Mirrors were on the car fitted from factory. Adjusting the mirrors works fine both on left & right side. Never had problems with that. Problem is with folding - when I press the button to fold, BOTH mirrors go up...

    Ok so simple question. ( I think ) My friend claims he knows EVERYTHING about BMW's. As he once owned a 330 ZHP. Anyway, im a 17 year old student saving up for a 330ci. He tells me not to get a e46 because the Trannys suck. He told me the automatic tranny wont last past 120,000 miles... Is...

    Ok guys, So Saturday last week I finally got rid of my diesel astra and converted over a BMW E46 COMPACT 316ti es. So the other day the coolant light came on so I put a litre of coolant in and all ran fine until the next day I popped to the garage to pick up some tobacco. Got back into my car...

    Hi! I have a trisky problem with my bmw 316 e46. Often when I unlock the car, I press the button on the key, then the lights go on, but the doors do not lock up. So when I press the button inside the car, nothing happens. But from the key I can both lock the car and open the boot, but I can not...

    Hey guys, I don't post too much since i can usually figure out my cars issues but today i'm really stumped! About 2 months ago the alternator went out on my 2004 330ci, the car died and the battery light came on. The battery was dead and it was obvious the alternator had given up. I bought a new...

    I've had this car for about a year now and it's time to finally figure out what is wrong with my heated seats. I've checked the fuses so far and they are fine. When touching the buttons on both sides the lights all flash once and that is it. Any ideas before I start blindly buying parts? Here...
