  1. Yea, does seem to be a fair amount of traffic, hence keeping it going. It used to make a little bit of money, now it'll break even (with the new, cheaper host). Story is all it was, from memory! Didn't even make up he has a CSL, only a CS.
  2. All is well, life's changed a bit since I started the site. It used to be a hive of activity, meets, camping etc. Now a shadow of it's former self, but I won't let it die. I've just moved to cheaper hosting, as it's getting a lot less traffic. It still contains so much knowledge, it'd be unfair to wipe it all away. (although saying that, almost 60k unique visitors and 110GB bandwidth last month!) We had some characters, that's for sure! Still friends on FB with a few, good to see them getting on. Other mentions are Steviejay, Duffman (with his real CS?), DunlopDave, Chimp Choker, Simon, Ricky.

    I'm here chaps! The site isn't very active these days, I assume due to the E46 getting old. I do check in and delete spam or fix the site from time to time. I want to preserve it, as there is so much knowledge on it. Hope you kids are doing well
  4. Seems it's almost a year to the day of my last reply. I've, err, been busy! I do check in, but the site has slowed and I've been busy with other things so it's not needed much ongoing work and seems to tick over. I don't want to close the place, there is a wealth of knowledge on here that should stick around until the internet is not a thing anymore. But, with some recent changes in life, I have decided to put some effort into this once great place and see if we can get a bit more of a community. Yes, there are less E46's about, and a lot more ropey ones, but still, there will be a following. So, I've updated the forum software, ran a load of updates and re-jigged the ads to be less frequent, but more rewarding (this place isn't free to run!). I will be posting up on social media from time to time, see if we can get some more interaction, and I am looking at re-re-re-re-launching my old e90zone site too. I always enjoyed running these sites, and it made me get up and go to car shows and put some effort in, and I miss that. So my hobby is back! Please please please let me know if you have issues, or suggestions on here, I will take them on board and deal with them. Thanks!

    Hi, sorry for the delay. I will process a batch this weekend and send out! Sam
  6. I recognised that road very quickly! Not used it for years now though.
  7. Hi chaps, it's been a while! I have let the forum slide a tad, life had got in the way and it went to the back of my mind. It looks like some very kind person has tidied it all up! I do plan on getting this place back a bit, but I do feel the E46's appeal is limited these days. 10 years ago, when I started E46Zone, they were still fairly premium. I plan to do a bit of promotion and see if we can get an active forum again...
  8. Agreed with TF, that thing looks nuts!
  9. thanks. Will get them ordered for when I take the door cards off. Found the clips I need also, incase we break any.
  10. Good idea, will get some. The windows move from left to right (if you're looking at them dead on) alot too, figured this might be a runner thing?
  11. My brother has just got a 325i touring, we need to look at the front windows, they are very slow or stop when coming back up. Any advice would be good! Also like to know part no's for the clips I'll most likely break removing the door cards. Does the mechanism just need greasing? Or the motors buggered?
  12. Is it not something simple like trim rubbing on full lock? granted a different car, but my air ducts came loose and I got a horrible noise on full lock
  13. Its a total cockup, I imagine they just thought that everyone would just stump up $400 and they'd be rolling in it! It's a big shame though, as so many guides etc are almost rendered useless due to photos now not working. And most are old, and people have moved on, so unlikely to ever get re-uploaded. I agree TF, they'll fold sooner rather than later. Even if I was happy paying to host my photos, my money would go else where. I can't fathom how they didn't see that...They've basically held their customers hostage. JUMP SHIP!
