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...

  8. OEM red caliper exist?

    E46 Touring
    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...

  18. Touring owners: Who has done the Bavsound Stage 1 upgrade? (HK if you got it)

    Mobile Electronics Forum
    Seriously mulling this over. It's really not crazy expensive for the tourings, especially since you don't get the rear bass drivers. (Not included in this kit.) Just that the sound in my 2002 E46 Touring is absolute catbarf. It's muddy and dull and I can barely have the stereo on. I'm fine...

    E46 Touring
    I'm thinking about taking my touring to an autocross next weekend. I used to do this a bunch, but the classing has changed since I stopped paying attention. Based on my reading of the rule book, would my touring be in STR, the same class and Miata and S2000? That seems like an uphill battle...
