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:
Oh, I don't know all that stuff you listed :dunno:

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.
Don't call your engine a V6 :mad:

Why not? I call 'em as I see 'em.
It isn't a V6 though! :mad:

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...

What top rattles?
My mom's 330Cic rattles :dunno:

Although, I don't think I could ever drive with the top up, so that wouldn't be an issue :dunno:
