  1. Split corners

    Lighting Forum
    Have anyone successfully split the corner turn signals? I'm looking at spraypainting the housing to go along with the headlight but to be able to do so i obviously need to take the glass away. Any ideas on how to do this? Same goes for the fender turn signals..
  2. E46 Spin Turn Knob for Handbrake?

    General E46 Forum
    Are there spin turn knobs made for or compatible with E46s? If not what are some alternative ways to have the same effect of not letting your e-brake stick in the locked position. I saw something about removing a spring, shaving the button down and jamming it in the handle, then fitting another...
  3. Very cold. Doesn't crank on first try, but I hear something spin. 2nd try it starts.

    General E46 Forum
    The first time I turn the key, I can here something spinning and then slowly stop when I let the key out. Then when I try the second time it works and starts up. Could something be frozen? It was 8 degrees here this morning and it happened. Happened every very cold morning so far.
  4. Intermittent Turn Indicator on Gauge Cluster

    General E46 Forum
    I have 2005 325i with 133k and for the last few months I've been trying to figure out a problem with the turn indicator on the gauge cluster. When I use the turn indicator stalk, the actual bulb on the outside(right or left) comes on and blinks as usual. But the blinking green arrow(or the...
  5. Remote turn on doesn't work??? Amp Install

    General E46 Forum
    So basically I am no mechanic or electrical guru by any means but I have done a lot of research and have spoken to a few guys at local audio shops in my town, the problem I am having is the remote turn on once worked and out of nowhere the amp just stopped turning off when car gets turned off...
  6. 330Ci Whine / Howl Noise When Turning Under Acceleration

    Hello to everyone. Recently bought a 330ci auto with 80k miles. I swapped from diesel so now my 3 litre engine sound quite different:) When Im driving my car at any speed with low rev all is good. No noises or nothing. But if I press a pedal a bit harder and start accelerating and than...
  7. Just my luck

    ///M3 Forum
    I walked outside yesterday and someone apparently tried to remove my passenger side turn signal but couldn't quite get it all the way off so they left it hanging there. They broke the little clip/mount on it so now it doesn't stay there anymore.

    General E46 Forum

  9. The BMW steering feel.

    General E46 Forum
    Hey guys I have owned my e46 for a bout 3 years now. Ever since I got it I realized it felt as if it had a "heavy steering wheel". Keep in mind that I owned a civic before my e46. The hondas steering wheel was soo smooth and so easy to turn. I'm not complaining but I wanted to know if my fellow...
  10. Thumping noise when accelerating out of a turn

    General E46 Forum
    I just got my control arm bushings replaced, and just recently started hearing a thumping sound coming from the front of my car. At first I though I ran over something, but it's happened more often than it should. Could it be underinflated tires? I noticed they're getting a little low...
