    Hello fellow E46 fans. I'm in a bit of situation here. My son was driving this car and the head gasket blew. (That's my assumption, coolant smell from the exhaust, engine is missing on 1 cylinder, oil leaking from valve cover gasket and general smoke from the head area) The shop said $11,500...

    reinstalling a new used engine in my 2005 325xi engine and trans together . Does the intake need to be off for install ?

    Going through with a “zhp conversion” on my 325xi and am about to purchase some style 68’s, offsets are 7.5 for fronts and 8.5 for rear, I’m aware that I cannot run different sizes tires, or shouldn’t at least, but if I run a square set up, will the offsets not being the same cause any damages?

    Hey all, My CV axles have gone out and I'm looking at getting a pair to replace them. I'm curious about the ABS ring however. On all the axles I've seen, they either don't address it, or specifically say its not included. Is this something I'm expected to carry over from the old axles? I've...

    Hello all! New to the forums. Never thought I'd be making one of these posts after all these years reading various FAQs but here I am with an issue that I can't really seem to find any info on. I just bought a 2002 325xi Wagon w/ Automatic transmission with a clunk when I put the car into drive...

    Okay so this is a bit of a long story, but I purchased an 02' e46 325xi last year, and I have been working on converting it to electric. I also spent time removing all of the xDrive components to convert it to RWD, as the all wheel drive system required the engine to support it. I've made my...

    Hello all, I wanted to find out what front end links everyone is running on there xi. I am decently low on KW V1's, with no other front end suspension mods. I have broken the front passenger side end link. Is anybody running adjustable end links? If so what brand are they and how do they...

    Hi guys, The belly pan under my auto trans is missing and thus exposes for instance what I believe is the selector lever assembly that's sticking out on the side of the trans: http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showparts?id=ES53-USA-12-2000-E46-BMW-330xi&diagId=25_0274 Is it an important...

    Hello there! I have a 330Xi (auto gearbox) with the famous vibration problem. I read multiple threads about this phenomenon and possible solutions but nothing helped. The following things has been replaced: oil in transmission, oil in rear diff, the whole CCV system, spark plugs, the DISA valve...

    Hi all, I just changed the ATF and filter on my XI. Well, didn't finish yet. I started pumping the new ATF back in but it seemed to flow back immediately. Did anybody hear of this before? What am I doing wrong? When I put the hose of my pump into the fill plug I feel the hose bumping onto...

    My XI-backed Joyride Yesterday NYC got hit with an enormous snow storm, and our “beloved” mayor decided to abandon any snow removing efforts until the storm is over the following day. Let's just say that while other sedans were either hopelessly stuck or moving along at a snail's pace, I was...

    Hello and greetings Bavarian Motor Works fanatics! I know there are quite a few forums around here, but I need to start my own thread to show my progress and to show what I am doing with possible insight on what to do with my own Bimmer. I am on and around very often in these forums to get to...

    I replaced both front CV axles with the cheap cardone axles off of Rockauto as I'd seen some people have success with them. After less than a week the inside of my wheels (both sides) looked like this: https://imgur.com/9P8KvSe. (That was mid July). I'm now getting some crazy vibrating and...

    Hello everyone, First time posting but long time reader. (Hope I'm posting this correctly) I'd like to thank everyone on the forum for posting all the great information over the years. It has helped me troubleshoot many problems with my BMWs and saved me tons of money. So when I decided to...

    I've had my 2005 330Xi for about 4 years. I replaced the motor this year due to a cooling system failure. While I had the motor out, I fixed all the cooling hoses, vacuum hoses, CV joints and everything else I could think of. After I finished, I decided to try my hand a RallyCross. Took...

    Well, today marks the day that I'm sick of the side to side movement in my shifter. About 4 months ago now I replaced all the linkage bushings and shifter in my 04 325xi and it had made a big difference. My problem is that my side to side slop never went away. I've had people claim to me that...

    So as the title says, my 2nd engine that I put in my 2004 325xi has gone. R.I.P. I debated on putting this in the engine swap forum, but decided to stay here. I believe the head gasket has gone unfortunately, I will make a different thread somewhere else discussing why I believe this to be...
