    Greetings everyone! I am new to the E46 community! I recently purchased an 2002 E46 M3 Coupe and it had an already existing problem with the Key fob and Passenger side door lock. My deduction is that the key fob's battery is fully out, AND the passenger side door "lock actuator" is also out. In...

    2000 BMW 328ci, just over 200,000km on it. From Canada, so we get cold weather. Now that’s in your head. Start of winter, maybe like -5 C outside. I start my car in the morning for about 10 minutes to just let it warm up. I hop in my car ready to go to school. All I smelt was gas. Like someone...

  13. Suspension, Brakes
    So I own a 2004 330ci and what I've noticed about my car is that when I pull my handbrake whenever I park, the higher I pull it up; the harder it is to put it back down. One day I pulled it as far up as I could because I was on a hill and when I was ready to leave and had to push the handbrake...

    Hello all, first post on here. Recently, my amazing grandmother handed me down her 2003 BMW 325i. I have noticed that while driving at normal cruising speeds (40mph) there is a dump in the RPM and a very rough grinding noise. Auto transmission and new spark plugs as of 3 days ago. Sound seems to...
