Going to be adding some M54 maintenance to the Wiki. Here's a direct link to my YouTube channel covering a ton of M54 common repairs and maintenance updates:

A "wiki" is a collective of knowledge that is editable by anyone. Please do not take this lightly: You all have the power to edit information that is there. Simply login with your bimmerfest login/password and hit the edit button. Please only add relevant information, make sure it is well organized, and make sure it's correct (alternatively, make corrections to incorrect data).

I plan on treating this E46 Wiki as a dynamic FAQ. I'd like it to become the #1 E46 resource on the 'net, replacing all 'sticky' threads, as well as adding all information that people typically ask (upgrades, maintenance, etc).

I'll slowly be moving the 'sticky' threads into the Wiki, so if you see a sticky disappear, that's where it went!

I'll try to develop a good structure/table of contents/formatting template there in the next few days that will make it easier for individuals to add content themselves.

Enjoy!

Step 1 - scan for codes
Step 2 - read the Wiki
Step 3 - start a new thread

Without codes...MAF, CPS, coils, plugs, vacuum leak in a hundred places, fuel pump, fuel filter, etc. = $$$.

Welcome to the 'fest!

It`s the whole Forum....new Bimmerfest owners are in the process of switching over to new servers, and system continuity is suffering. Hang in there....

Interesting. So the forum was for sale? How much did it sell for and what was the asking price?

The Bentley E46 Manual covers all models (AFAIK), and should take care of what you need. Sometines you can get a deal on a used one from eBay, so look around !

The MAIN reason for this is because folks who know better avoid the SULEV like the plague. There`s plenty of info on GOOGLE, look there, or use the Bimmerfest SEARCH function, there`s been a lot of discussion about it here over the years.
