That doesn't sound like us at all. We warranty everything we sell for at least a year and stand behind every product we offer. Of course we can't warranty a part that's been intentionally destroyed....

We've actually had a few customers email us a photo of this light being on in E46 cars with manual transmissions before. But like the OP none of the cars were north American spec. I suspect it's a...

First thing I would do is take the caliper off. See if you can compress the piston in the caliper. If you can the caliper itself should be fine. If you can't it's likely defective. It doesn't happen...

Sensors in the bellhousing means you have a 325e. I'm not aware of a lightweight flywheel being available for these. But of course new dual mass flywheels are available.

If it's a plain 325 and not a 325i an engine from an 84-87 325e or 528e would be a pretty direct swap. Even the simplest of engine swaps can become a headache quick if you're trying to retrofit...

We've seen a few really worn out shifters where the selector rods themselves actually come apart so it's very possible that's what's happened. We sell shifter "rebuild" kits that include a new...

Quite often if the valves aren't adjusted regularly throughout the car's life the eccentrics get flat spotted and won't hold an adjustment for long. Sometimes the nuts/bolts that hold them wear out...

If you look closely at the front caliper it will say either Girling or ATE on it. Also ATE calipers have the 7MM allen head guide pins and the Girling has regular 13mm bolts on the guide pins....

The Girling style calipers don't have an anti-rattle clip. E30's could have either ATE or Girling calipers up front. Only the ATE's use the clip.

Are you absolutely, positively sure this is a 325i and not a 325e? 5000 rpm cutoff is normal for a 325e. 325e has no impulse sender on the #6 plug wire, and has pickups in the bell housing that read...

The offset bushings will push the front wheels forward slightly. You don't really "have" to run different top mounts with them but you'll certainly need an alignment. I run the offset powerflex...

The link to the Hella lenses is for M3 fogs, not 325is/325es fogs. We have the M3 version also (actually cheaper too) but it doesn't fit the NA-specific 86-87 es/is spoiler mounted fogs. If the OP...

I've had both and for everyday driving honestly I think the 325e has a slight edge. Lower revs on the highway, better mileage, and more bottom end torque. Don't get me wrong I love my 325is but you...
