  1. Parking Sensor LOOM replacement

    Hi guys, I've recently had issues regarding my parking sensors, all were ticking correctly apart from one. *Each time I put it in reverse it beeps for 5 seconds) removing the back bumper from my car I discover that that one of the 4 cables from the loom isn't outputting anything, which is why the forth sensor isn't working. As a result I have ordered a replacement cable loom for the sensors. Can anyone advise when this loom plugs into the car? I attempted to follow the cables back but had no luck. (BMW E46 Convertible 320D)

  3. Faulty Wireless key range

    Thanks, I took a unit out earlier which I thought it was, a thin black/grey box located on the left side just below the CDC, After taking it out/unplugging it, the remote unlock was no different so it must have been the wrong part? it had 4 connections.
  4. Faulty Wireless key range

    Thanks, any idea where this is located on the convertible?
  5. Faulty Wireless key range

    Fairly sure there's no interference issues, tried in different locations and removing possessions from the car
  6. Faulty Wireless key range

    Hi, thanks for the replies. Indeed holding it to my head does help, though it isn't ideal. I really want the wireless key fob to work from a reasonable distance.
  7. Faulty Wireless key range

    Hi, not sure if I'm posting this in the correct place as I'm new to here, but any advice would be greatly appreciated I've recently bought a 2005 e46 convertible, and the wireless key range is really poor, I literally have to stand next to the car to be able to unlock it wirelessly, any further than a meter away and it doesn't work. I ordered a new key for the car and programmed it accordingly, and still had to same issue so I know the key is not the issue. I believe it's most likely one of the receiver units in the car, can anyone confirm specifically what is most likely failing? And how I would go about replacing it?
  8. Insurance At 19 On A 320D?

    Hi Guys, I'm 19 and have previously been insured as a secondary driver on my mums VW Polo 1litre. I'm wanting to get my own BMW (Preferbly 320D) but am not wanting to pay the £7000 insurance quote! I know i can go as a second driver, and put my mum as the main, however this cost will never then reduce, and it also means I'll get no claims however this option is only £1500. I wondered if anyone knew of a good insurance company (Reasonable priced) which I could go comprehensive on for this car? Cheers guys,
