  1. new bilsteins have more travel/ longer than the old ones apparently there definitely m-sport shocks... Cant remember but is this good or bad? springs are still under good compression,
  2. standard m sport springs, dont look like anyones touched the suspension since new, oem bmw sachs shocks came off, and black red/ white striped springs, and a sheared shock mounting bolt on the knuckle, took best part of 3hrs to get the fker out without damaging the thread
  3. dont think it has tbh, it sits around the same as my friends 325 m sport, il have another look at the springs but they defo look original
  4. Had this on my old E39 it was the ABS Module, Ive had the lights coming on and off on my 330 for about a year now, they used to come on and off randomly, plugged it in the other day had Both pressure sensor faults 1 & 2 & Control unit internal errors - Tested both pressure sensor and live data was fine, Cleared faults & only active was the DSC/ABS pump - Best way is to just plug it in check the data for all four wheel sensors & rule them out,
  5. If the pas system is working and no bubbles are coming to the top of the fluid in the reservoir its fine? You just top it up after youve changed, start it leave it running top it up again and turn a few times lock 2 lock, unless you left a pipe loose and its sucking air back in, In which case youd notice a leak
  6. Will have a look tomorrow when i get them off, looking at the pic of when I bought it - there is hardly any arch gap as is, from 4 years ago, obviously being a daily, I cba with scraping and bouncing over bumps! lol
  7. problem is i cant lower it at all, i bought the car with staggered 19's so there is hardly any arch gap as is, and with a full car on the motorway it does touch going over dips, and i dont want to mess about with arches etc, Take it i will have to go oem? Had a browse coudnt find anything tbh
  8. Afternoon all ive got a 330ci m sport - suspension is very bad! ive ordered new bilstein b4 shocks all round, but thinking while im there might as well renew springs as well, pretty sure one on the rear is broken a bit! Ive had a look but most aftermarket eibach etc are all lowering springs, i dont want to lower the car or slam it or anything - im past that, this is a daily so will have passengers etc want something which is standard ride height for m-sport and comfortable, if anyone has any suggestions? thanks
  9. evening all wondering if someone could assist me in this matter, have a 330ci 51plate - lower arms and bushes are completely f'd like i actually get scared when i drive it now - anyway euro car parts have supplied some lemforder arms which look right and well you have to be a colossal retard to not supply the right part for that or mange to c**k that up Anyway ive got some lower arm eccentric bushes - I gave the reg and made sure they were correct as they were planning on giving me rear arm adjustable link rods - ffs anyway confirmed they were correct went to collect - checked the pn it says its only for m3's and i cant seem to find any mention of a 330ci etc... I test fitted the centre on the arm and well its loose tbh - probably about a 2m gap thereaboust - ive fitted powerflex bushes in the past and where they have been easy to install - never this easy but yeah - that doesnt seem right when tis fully flush it mates with the end of the arm and holds it secure but there is some movement on the end, so BMW E46 M3 99-06 Powerflex Front Wishbone Rear Bushes Caster Adjust PFF5-5601GM3 | eBay what I have been supplied? if anyone could confirm that would be great,
  10. It seems bavsound only offer kits for cars with hifi and hk installed, nothing for normal stereo
  11. Evenings, Recently acquired a immaculate 330ci, really impressed with it, literally is fully loaded inc sunroof & lumbar & rear blind! & heated's lol, with on of my fav colour combos and trims... Only thing it hasn't got is the HK system however Im not really bothered tbh as ive heard its not great, only thing letting it down is the sounds, obviously has the standard bmw budget audio system.... I was looking into bav sound however from what I gather this is only applicable if I have HK? and even then its a little pricey for what it is, I only picked the car up last week and haven't even had the time to go over it properly, I have a dodgy chinese head unit in atm, which is coming out for a dynavin one, Im assuming there are two speakers and tweeters up front and two on the back shelf, as there are speaker grilles in the rear door cards but cant hear any sound? on that assumption can anyone recommend any direct OEM Fitment speakers, I dont really want to be cutting my door panel etc.. something better than HK possibly will do for me, http://www.amazon.co.uk/MB-Quart-QM-165-BMW-E46/dp/B009ESLY90 Ive seen the above anyone have any suggestions? MB quartz used to make some quality speakers I had a MB set up in one of my old cars and it sounded crisp! Will those essentially fit straight in no messing about, except the speaker connection etc which is not a problem, thanks
  12. someone might as well go down to sussex do some burnouts, spice things up a bit for the local news reporters "crazed driver terrorizes streets of sussex"
  13. yep pn is - 64111380687 if you find its past it just get two seat heaters replace in one go , elements a bit longer for the backrest but i just folded it in, wiring is just brown - red yellow - yr
  14. you got a bargain for those seats at £250! dependant on what year and mileage car they came out of, the elements might be past it, i would try and get some new from bmw while there still available, the backrest elements have only recently become nla, so i just bought two seat heater elements at £62 and just stuck it in!
  15. replaced the heated elements in my 20 year old seat, heats up nicely now!
