  1. My beloved 46 appears to be haunted. The wing mirror glass has started to move all by itself. I've heard the ribbon that connects all the bits can get worn over the years and just wanted to check to see if any one else had a similar problem, and if that is the likely problem. I've heard the part is expensive but can be fixed with specialist electrode glue or something similar?
  2. Hello, Just wondered if anyone managed to get their wings fixed using the BMW 12 year anti corrosion warranty. I took mine in back in January, so it was well within its 12 years as its a late model car and they refused as it doesn't have full BMW history. I contacted BMW UK and they are trying to wiggle out of it too. The rust has just started coming through in the usual place. Its only done 70,000. Anyway, I have heard of people getting the work done without full BMW history in the past and wondered if anyone did get it fixed? I know they are trying to wiggle out of it with the BMW history thing as the rust is a well known fault due to the poor design. I'm considering taking it to the small claims court if I can prove others have had it done without full BMW history as a matter of principle. Thanks Daniel
  3. Thanks but those lights are not OEM by the looks of it.
  4. Yeah I was thinking about that or the the roller shutter thing - however given it just broke all by itself I wondered if something had just moved or broke after going over a bump. If i had broke it trying to pull it out or something I would not have minded. BMW quality hey? you can have my old one for free if u want, it's just sitting up my loft doing nothing. it doesn't have any faults as far as i'm aware. Thanks fella, is it the entire unit, I think there is a cable underneath it?
  5. Hi, I have a couple of LEDs out. Was thinking of buying a broken one on ebay and fixing mine. I understand its a sealed unit and a bugger to get open. My question is; has anyone actually managed to do it?

  7. OK, i managed to scuff my car door, doh! I'm pretty anal about how careful I am do I am not best pleased. Anyone know how to hide this? I tried Cockpit cleaner (Turtlewax Product) but it just made the area white, it has washed off see the picture below. People have said shoe wax, Vinylex, anyone actually used anything and had success? http://www.e46zone.com/forum/gallery/image/4848-scuff/
  8. Hi, please see picture, the cradle wont stay down: http://www.e46zone.com/forum/gallery/image/4846-bluetooth/
  9. Hi guys, got in my car today and noticed the center console phone cradle had popped up. Hmmm... OK, just press it back down. Nope. After 5 minutes of trying to wiggle it to get it to stop popping out I gave up as I was starting to lose it. There looks like there is as metal hook that is not catching properly. I don't want to snap it being a gorilla, anyone had this problem and know how to fix it? I dont want to have to buy the whole part if its an easy fix. Any ideas?
  10. Where can I find a decent E46 coupe, why don't people look after their cars!
