Sometimes I think to myself . . . what the heck is wrong with me that I know SO MUCH about the E46. I've never had a car I knew so much detail about.

Just think of all the things we know . . .

- all the different steering rack dates
- every production change down to the month
- every option way too thoroughly
- every wheel type number
- which steering wheel for which year and whether it's a PP or SP
- where most rattles come from
- rear seats squeak and how to fix
- HK rattle
- window regulator rattle


etc. etc. etc. it's almost crazy . . .

Man maybe we need to stop being SOOOOO obsessed with this freakin car !!!!

Once you get the 330Cic, you may become famililar with the convertable top rattle and what each electric motor does :angel:
I don't think we know ALL that much Alan, but I will tell you this much--my E46 has the nicest, smoothest V-6 engine of any car I've ever driven. Although I really prefer the G35, I constantly find myself remarking that the Bimmer's V-6 feels so much smoother and better balanced than the Infiniti's.
Oh, I don't know all that stuff you listed :dunno:
Don't call your engine a V6 :mad:

Why not? I call 'em as I see 'em.

V6... wow, I always thought they were turbo 4's? You learn something new every day.

Only 328s and 330s have turbos, the other models are non-turbo...

the M3 has a TT I-5...

Oh, it's not? Huh, go figure (I always thought it was).

Well, the other thing that I really love about my BMW is how those crafty German engineers solved the infamous 'torque-steer problem'. On EVERY other (Japanese) front-wheel drive car I've owned or driven, they always had terrible torque steer, but I've never noticed it on my Bimmer. Kudos to BMW engineers!!

Next time you open the hood, uncross your eyes.

And have you guys ever wondered how the E46's suspension is so superior to most Honda's, even though they both have double-wishbones all the way around?
GIT DOWN MAGGOT! DON'T EVER USE "BMW" AND "FRONT WHEEL DRIVE" IN THE SAME CONVERSATION!!!!
