Did you Google that code?
You are saying nothing about your car. Is it missing?
If it is missing badly, it could be cylinder #1 ignition coil.
Swap the coil with another cylinder and see if the...

I was hoping a BMW tech or an indy mechanic might see this and share a few things. Otherwise I know that I won't get much reply. It isn't a typical everyday problem for e46 owners. In about 9 years...

Wow... I never thought an E46 would still pull 15k. Car looks good but 15k is too much in my opinion. You can almost get an E92 for that price. It won't be a convertible but a E92 (coupe) looks very...

What got my attention is that he didn't mention the infamous trilogy. He just said the DSC light.
OP, is it only the DSC light or DSC + ABS + BRAKE trilogy?
