    Hey guys, I just joined. Tried searching to no avail. I got an e46 Touring and the retractable roll-up cargo cover is crooked. When it's retracted you can clearly see the left edge is lower than the right, and when it's extended you can clearly see more tension on the right edge while the left...

    Finally putting together a thread. Bit of history to start... Starts with my old B6 S4 Avant 6MT, owned for about 3 years. Nogaro blue exterior+interior, JHM headers to Milltek exhaust, coils then air then coils again. Thing was a beast and I love it to this day. Then my neighbor let me drive...
  6. E46 Touring
    well it's been almost a month so I thought I'd share it here. no longer own an E46 touring. I'm happy I was in a BMW when I crashed, probably saved my life. I somehow managed to climb out of the passenger door relatively uninjured. not sure whether or not I'll be buying another or leaving the...

    So I bought another touring, this time I wanted one with a better pedigree, so I found one in Oxford Green, tan interior. The touring was actually very well-maintained by qualified mechanics through its life (2 prior owners). I have all the records including original sale. The transmission had...

    I have noises at low speed when turning in car parks and such, sounds like something is scraping on the ground. there's also a big boom when I go on/off power at speed. I've read that the M3s used to have these problems and it's an LSD thing that BMW fixed but of course I have an open diff...

    I have saved a neighbor from some hack mobile mechanic. 10/03 2004 325iA Touring Meergruen-Metallic (ECONO paint job) :/ They were going to charge 750 to replace the thermostat housing... but there is an obvious coolant leak... 4.5 yr old Radiator has a hole in it, looking like sabotage...

    Hey all, trying to install an Avin4 headunit into my German 2003 e46 touring that came with factory navigation (16:9) and no HK. I'm unable to find a plug that would connect into the 6m Quadlock extension. The closest thing is a 42 pin connector (Part number: 8364862) that comes out of the...

I changed my suspension springs over the weekend, since I’ve changed them im getting a flapping noise from front right wheel, sounds like the guard behind the disc. But I’ve jacked the car up, wheel off and nothing is loose...

    …out of a wrecking 318i for my 320i. I don't know if the $200 savings is worth the mess of wires? should I unplug the cable further back?
