    Hey guys, hopefully there are some people on this forum who have had experience with diesel powered bmw's. Little backstory: Was drifting with my friend couple of days ago (Read was snowing heavily) everything was good, we're having a good time when in the end the car kinda straightened/spun...

    Hey guys, big problem! A couple of months ago i disconnected my battery from my E46 Wagon, mainly to charge it, and second to put the car away for storage over the winter. Today, i had to move the car. But this was impossible. Im locked out! I tried pulling the handle with a coat hanger, i...

    Hi, My wagon (which is an automatic) becomes very rough feeling if I travel at speed but if I pop it down a gear in sport manual mode it increases the revs and the shuddering sensation disappears. It feels like my manual car does when I change gears too early but it's an auto and it drives fine...

    Hi, đźš— Long time ago I did a DIY on a Genuine M3 bumper retrofit for facelifted sedans on this Forum, the idea was that it was going to go up with the rest of the DIY in the DIY forum and on the DIY Thread M3 DIY thread. At that time a small poll was carried out as a kind of contest, but these...

    What's up! So I bought this 330i from a friend of mine recently for a fair price. It has done 260 000kms. (162k miles) It's got some rust on the fenders unfortunately, the front fenders will be replaced and the rears will probably get repaired with some new fresh bodywork. Will raise the car so...

    Hi, So my E46 (year 2004 330d) decided that the the one thing missing in my life is an electrical f*ckery. I’ll try to explain as good as i can, and maybe someone has had this problem. Pretty much my airbag light came on, and since then it shows different faults, everything works fine if the...

    Here is a quick GoPro compilation of my B30 project so far. I've got the front end off and started to take the suspension apart. My exhaust flange to section 1 is completely rusted, so I'll need to figure that one out next. This is my first engine swap and can't thank the community enough for...

Does anyone know if the rear end swap will affect my compatibility with my coil-overs or will I...

    Yesterday I saw a 330i touring with 58000km at a used car dealer in Germany. That car is almost perfect without the heavy and self-right-turning steering wheel and red brake calipers. Is that an option, when the car is manufactured? As the information says, it is a car which from an 82 years old...
