    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.

    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...

    2001 325ci Recently my passenger side low-beam has been giving me trouble.

After doing some research and switching bulbs...
