  1. General E46 Forum
    Hello this is my first post here, I just bought an '02 330i with only 65k after owning an '85 535i (e28) for two years. Learned how to do all of my own work on the e28 so I'm expecting to adjust to the newer learning curve of the e46 My car is equipped with the Harman Radio System, but it won't...
  2. DIY: Do It Yourself
    Just noticed today in the rain that my 330xi with 80,000mi started making some squealing noises in the rain. Looking closer it sounds like I have some belts and pulleys to replace. As someone who has done brakes and some light wrenching is this something I can tackle in an afternoon myself...

    Hey everyone, Was curious if it's possible to retrofit the 'shadowline' style trim to my '04 325xi. The factory trim around the doors frankly looks like garbage imo, the shadowline style is way better looking to me. Not to mention, one of the far rear (strongly curved) sections has detached...
  4. NY / NJ / CT
    Hey guys, With the weather we've been having around my area (Central NJ) it looks like my hometown, Cranford, affectionately called the "Venice of New Jersey," will be having another rough spring. Many streets in my town are already underwater tonight (I live in suburbia) and people are...

    We've had plenty of hard rain here in the midwest the past few days. When it's raining fairly hard where water seems to collect on the roads, I find it much easier to drive with the DSC off. Anyone else seem to notice that DSC is quite sensitive and at times too dangerous?
  6. Exterior
    Ordered a set of mud flaps for my 330 coupe, but never got around to installing them. Have a complete set (2) front and (2) rear, brand new still in bag. Will throw in another front set for free if it's bought by this weekend. Will fit 99' to 05' E46 models, 323, 325, 328, 330. Price: $25 +...

    My 323i has 132k on it, everything is going wrong. Im about to put it into the shop for a big overhaul of the coolant system and replace a first bank cat, and now I've got a new noise: It's pouring out here in east Hampton and driving home today in the rain caused my car to moan and rumble...
  8. DIY: Do It Yourself
    (Still writing, come back tommorow) I couldn't find a good E46 specific DIY for the rain light sensor and auto-dim mirror... so after doing this I figured I could document as best I can and start a thread to describe how mine worked out. Here I will manage and put all the info I can find and...
  9. Car Care & Detailing
    I just got some PB EX-P sealant and I'm anxious to use it and see results. I'm going to wash, claybar, then apply the sealant. I know the sealant needs 24hrs for a full cure before I apply my wax for best results. On the downside, where I live there are late afternoon/night thunderstorms on an...

    I got home from a lecture and it was boiling hot (33 degrees, full sun). I decide to open both my cars sunroofs and windows so they wouldn't overheat inside. I go out to town forgetting to close them. Around midnight it starts pouring with rain. I get home at 3, fall asleep, then wake up in the...
