    Just thought I would share my thoughts on the leather shift boot and parking brake boot with the M colour cross stitching I just purchased from RedlineGoods. I couldn’t be happier! I honestly thought it was going to be a bit tacky or ugly but its perfectly subtle, the threads are small and nice...

    Hi all, my first post here. I bought a 2004 325xi Touring about a month ago, and have read hundreds of useful posts here. Anyway, I dropped the pan on the GM tranny, replaced filter and gasket and refilled with Redline D4. I know that stuff smells bad, have been using it for years in my VW...

    Hey everyone. Earlier today I was driving to work and was running a little behind schedule. I was driving quite spiritedly and stomped on the gas. It climbed up to 6,800 RMP but it kept going up! I immediately moved it to manual mode and shifted up into 2nd, but the tach did reach a little over...

    Hi guys, I've been thinking about changing the transmission oil simply because I feel like if I did it could slightly improve shifting. Currently when I shift it feels somewhat stiff and jerky especially from 1st to 2nd gear. I've read that most e46 manual transmissions feel the same but that...

    New Edit I hate digging up old threads, but as I am the OP, I guess I'll let it slide :hi: I'm finally getting around to changing out the manual transmission fluid and can't find the capacity ANYWHERE. Even the owner's manual doesn't list the capacity as it says it's a "Lifetime Fluid." I know...

    2000 323i 5speed 170,000km Today I did spark plugs (NGK) and Diff Fluid (Redline) and threw in a magnaflow resonator. Here is an album http://imgur.com/a/GsEBT The Diff Fluid: I drained the fluid, only about 1 liter came out, there was no metal shavings, but the fluid was dark. It was still...

    I'm debating on a few diff scenarios for what I should put in to my 5spd. (mixes are 50/50 - 1qt each) Scenario 1) Redline 75w90ns + MTL Scenario 2) Redline MTL only (likely thicker than i would prefer) Scenario 3) Redline D4-ATF + 75w140ns (what UUC recommends) Scenario A) Motul 75w140 + ATF...

    Hello I drive a 2001 BMW 330ci, and I absolutely love it. I have heard from various sources that the engines on these cars, if well maintained are pretty much bullet proof. I was involved in a little car race last night, and I was wondering if reving the engine to show off is bad for the engine...

    ...What is the cheapest way to increase your redline? I'm from Australia, so the Shark is not an option as it does not work for Euro-spec cars.
