    General E46 Forum
    First of all, greetings to all from Spain. This will be my first post on the forum, after finding it very useful for a long time.

    My slow sled: 2000 E46 320D touring, 136 horsepower, 5 speed manual trans, 200,000 km. In the past two years the car has had lots of new parts installed but right now the issue is a lack of power. It should have 136HP but feels like 46HP. I replaced the turbo a year ago and the car has been...

    General E46 Forum
