  4. e46 325Xi manual trans versus 325i manual trans.

    E46 Xi Forum
    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...

    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...
  10. No Crank + No Click after a Freezing 10F° Night [stay warm my fellow New Yorkers]

    General E46 Forum
    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...

    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...

    E46 Xi Forum
    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...
  15. Double shear selector rod for an xi

    E46 Xi Forum
    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...

    While working under the car I noticed that the driver's side tie rod boot is torn open and has completely separated into two pieces. With 103k miles on the car, I think it's a good times to replace both tie rods and boots. I'm probably going with Meyle tie rods and Febi boots. Any advice for...
