    I recently picked up a barn find of an E46 coupe, however there is a problem where the windows roll down by themselves once the door is open and they continue to roll down rhythmically until they are all the way to the bottom. Once they are down the windshield wipers will not work and the...

    TLDR: Random RPM fluctuations under load, rich trims, and cylinder 5 misfires. Calculated load value dropping to 0 or 100. Compression is good; most relevant components are tested or replaced. Check out this dropbox for all the juicy bits. Hello, hope y'all are well today. My name is...

    Hey guys. I know that might sound extreme/weird... but I am thinking about swapping the N42B18A engine in my 316ti to an E46 M3 S54B32 engine. Now that is just a thought and not reality yet. But before I do anything I wanted to inform myself: 1. If its even possible and...

    Hi everyone! So I have a 2005 330i ZHP and recently I took it to a car wash where the driver's side mirror cover fell out. I picked the cover up after the wash and super glued it back on a few days later. After a day or two of having the glue on, I realized that my driver's side mirror doesn't...

    I should note my E46 was originally a 5 speed manual 325ci converted to a “ZHP” via engine swap but really I’m here to look for info regarding my newest car, a 1988 735i 5 speed manual, euro spec. Oldest bmw I’ve owned and incredibly rare in the states so info is sparse seemingly. leaks oil...

    So i have a question and maybe has access or knows what is the measurement between the rear bumper shocks housing? or what ever that is called (where the bumper shock go into) and i would need the measurement of the inside wall.

    I recently replaced my struts a couple of days ago and i noticed that the passenger side strut is oriented a bit differently. on the driver side the notch on the spring perch points outward toward the tire (when looking at the front of the vehicle the notch points directly East) but on the...

    A while back i had a to put another engine in my 06 325Ci. Since then my halo rings won't turn on and only my right headlight comes on when I turn them on.

    Hi I just got a 330 zhp and only one speaker works. the only that works is the passenger side rear on the deck. the previous owner said that the other rear one will work on and off. I don't think they a blown because there is no static sound coming from the other speakers.
