    2002 325ci pulled off from a red light just fine. Hit 3rd gear very hard, then dropped to 2nd and wouldn’t come out of second. The car eventually tried to go into 3rd again and repeated the same problem. Eventually it went into safe mode (gear icon) and i drove home in 4th with low power. The...

    About a month ago my car would not turn over, the lights on the dash and air would come on but besides a click the engine would not turn over. After two weeks at the shop (not a bmw shop) the mechanic told me the EWS module was shot, it was replaced and I was given a new key. 2 weeks later the...

    Hello all, I am new here. I’ve recently bought my son a 2006E 46 coupe. The day after I bought it it started going into a failsafe mode sporadically. Sometimes I can drive 30 miles and nothing happens other times it goes into fail safe mode three or four times within a mile. Every time it goes...

    Hey guys, I work at a Volvo dealership and was thinking (due to Covid slowing us down) there’s lots of spare time for our techs (one who is quite capable of installing an e46 clutch) to install a clutch kit on my 2006 325CI M Sport. Now at 200,000 klms, I’m starting to feel a pulsation in the...

    Just bought a 2005 325ci (my second one!)and have a free trial for Sirius radio, but cannot find a radio code in the set of manuals. Sirius says to set the radio to 0 and the code will display, but I have no idea how to do that. Wiki says convertibles may or may not be compatible with Sirius...

    So i have an e46 325ci convertible with the factory xenon lights and have 1 headlight out. I have been looking for xenon headlights to replace mine with the halo/angel eyes.

    My car was vandalized and the passenger side mirror was broken off. Can someone help me identify the part number for the metal mount? I don't need to whole mirror cover, just the thing that holds it onto the door. I highlighted it in yellow in the diagram, pics attached. Any leads on where to...

Now how hard will it be to program the DME? Can i get a DME from an M3 and use that? Now Please i don't want any hate over my choice to want...

    Okay so for a month or so I've been experiencing some vibration in 2nd-4th gear when I'm heavy on accelerating. After reading some forum threads I figured it was either (or at least a good place to start): -Differential mounts -Tranny Mounts -Flex Disc -Driveshaft So the other day I ordered...
