    Hey, so a few months ago I installed Fortune Auto coil overs on my e46 323ci (my first time doing this, with the help of my friends). However, after riding around for a while and jacking up my car recently I noticed that there has been contact between my sway bar end links and, lower control...

    Salutations, Ya'll. I just bought my first BMW about a week ago for $2k. 2005 325i with a M54B25 engine that had a misfiring problem. 116k miles, no rust, near flawless body with only a few manageable chips and scratches, and so-so condition on the interior. When I picked it up and inspected...

    Hi ! I've been using BMW scanner 1.4 for a bit now, but I still don't know if those Shadow codes are still current problems or are they are just a history ? Can't delete them and they are there for like 2 years now ( since I bought the car ). Thanks !

    is it normal to break a ZF transmission in this way
  8. E46 Convertible
    Bought a convertible 330ci last year and learnt about subframe cracking and kinda just ignored the issue. I've been told that all e46 are destined to cracking, that only 10% of m3 verts have this issue, that later models are less prone to cracking. Was wondering the probability of cracking...

    There's a good amount of oil residue on my power steering reservoir but I've ruled out the hoses as there is no oil on them and I can't see any cracks. There's also no oil on the top of the tank so I don't think it's the O-ring in the cap (I'm going to replace it anyway). All of the oil is on...

    I don't NEED any parts but what are some good parts if any to buy just in case? Are there any parts that are hard to find/likely to be needed in future? It's the first time I've seen a donor e46 this local to me and I don't want to miss out on some cheap parts. I'm considering buying the front...

    Im thinking about deleting the fluid reservoir, and the pump. Seen it done before, supposedly it won’t affect anything else. Anyone on here done it before and can tell me if there are any cons other than not being to use the nozzles obviously. IVE NEVER EVER used them and the reservoir takes up...

    Today I was attempting to remove the coolant expansion tank on my 2001 330i and while under the car I saw a gash in the hose next to it. Does anyone know what hose this is so I can replace it? Thank you

    Does the little connector come out or the whole thing?
  14. Electronics
    Hey, So this might be a dumb thing to ask, but theoretically would it be possible to retrofit the newish touchscreen display key to work with an e46? Let's say money's out of the picture and the actual E46 diamond key that has no longer functional electronics is on a key chain w my house...

    I recently bought a 328i for a project car and noticed some of the interior is messed up, but I cant find any pictures online to what needs to be replaced. By any chance can someone send me a pic of the interior so I can make sure everything is there, it'd be much appreciated
