    Okay, so i purchased a 2000 pre facelift 323i a couple months ago with a blown engine for 500 bucks, so I swapped a M54B30 into it (originally an M52TUB25). Everything has gone decently well despite the fact that i had to convert the drive by cable throttle to drive by wire, upgrade the fuel...

    If you see the "Brake Circuit failure" Warning! Fix brake light switch under the brake peddle ASAP. This switch is also connected to the cruise control. I found this out when I braked the car in cruise and the car accelerated. So fix it before driving. This is the second time I have had to...

    I bought a 1996 740il it has a lot of problems, but runs great. The two big ones are the brake lights and the windshield wipers. My son is trying to work on them one at a time. We have ordered a new brake switch and bulbs and are trying to find a part number and location for a wiper relay, any...
