    While swapping the b25 in my 03 325ci with a b30 found in a junkyard 02 530i I have noticed a difference in the engine wiring harness. Pictured below are the two differences. The production date on the 325 is 12/2002 and the one on the 530i is 03/2002. I thought the dme didn't change until...

    Hey guys. Just bought a second hand 1999 328i and the dome light / light above the vanity mirror hasn't been working since I purchased it. All the other interior lights work fine (glovebox/footwell/rear interior) I have tried replacing all the fuses and the bulbs, but still nothing. I am opting...

    Couldn't find a properly labeled engine wiring harness so tried to make one myself The RealOEM diagram isn't very accurate but you can make out what is going on MS43 No SAP CPS = Camshaft Position Sensor, except for the 'CPS below starter' where it is the crankshaft position sensor MS54.1...

    Having a little trouble getting the 2001 330Ci started. I have finished the entire manual conversion and am just down to the wiring and clutch line. I have wired the clutch switch in (1 wire to the DME, another wire to ews, and other 2 two wires tapped into the power and ground on brake switch)...

    Hello, I'm towards the end of my 5mt swap in my 2004 330ci and I have yet to see mention of obsolete wires/parts aside from what you have to directly remove because it is in the way. 50skid and shoplifeTV don't go over the EGS, and the only mention of it I have seen/read is from Bali's writeup...

    Hi! I am in the middle of replacing about 70% of the cooling system parts in an automatic 2000 323Ci. 165k. I had some rad leaks, sensor errors, and the aux fan didnt cut on. Got close to over heating bit i have a short commute so i was always able to refill the coolant. I ordered an after...

    Hi I bought a pair of heated seats for my 2003 E46 convertible off an ebay seller who was getting rid of his interior. My own car has electrically adjustable seats and these new ones are identical, except they are also heated. I bought 2 looms (new old stock) for heated seats (part no...

    This is an FYI. If your car is being attacked by mice or any other living creature, use Repel-All spray. They specifically like to hide on intake manifold between bank 1 and bank 2 where the older version of temperature sensor is. It appears to be safe as i used it liberally this year. It is...

    Bought this bmw (2000 323i, no fancy upgrades in terms of trim level as far as I know) in November after sitting for 10 years. It appears the previous owner had a sub (the blue wire along with the red and black tubed wire run to the trunk) For the head unit wiring, any suggestions. Is there a...

    …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?

    Hi guys, Can anyone tell me how these wires pair up please? I am redoing my passenger side mirror wiring on my 2004 330ci as it fell apart when I removed the door panel for a different repair. I tried finding the info online but came up empty unfortunately. The car has manual seats (no memory...

    This just started happening recently, but my stereo has been cutting out intermittently when using electrical things, like blinkers, turning on my headlights, or when my DSC comes on. Sometimes it will cut out when I put some power down, or when shifting gears. Most of the time, only the audio...

    I bought my e46 330i a few months ago as a project...the car came with a set of xenon headlights that were brand new but when I attempted to install them I found the smaller connector that goes into the control module is not there. I'm assuming it would be a connector that came in xenon-equipped...

    Hello, I am in the process of trying to figure out how to retrofit the OEM home link garage door opener kit on my 2001 bmw e46 330ci. I read that the earlier models do not have the wiring pre wired, also if your car doesn't have that stickers on the rear trunk that means the car was not pre...

My problem is that I have the newer style stock head unit...
