  1. bmw indy i use had an laguna secca blue m3 cabby in,,had a csl boot with a carbon lip spoiler,,i was drooling,,i thought it was a wrap on the edge of the boot it looked so subtle,,was lovely
  2. arms etc will have to come out,,then get bushes in,,so unless your doing it yourself,,is it worth it,,depends how much mechanic is charging for labour,,ive justb changed all front arms on my e90 330d,,control arms/radius arms/drop links,,the guy i used had to use heat,,so the ball joints/knuckles were shot with the heat anyway,,good luck though,,ps arms are different shape on the e90,,,but when i had control arm(lower) rear bushes done on my e46 i remember he just cut the bush out with a grinder and replaced the bush without taking the whole arm off..
  3. how do you know your car has reached desired temp,?,have you checked via hidden menu? sounds like your thermostats are goosed,,you could have 2 or 1 stat,,i had a 53 plate and only had 1 stat,,yours could have 2,,egr and main,,also clean your egr yes,,but i doubt thats affecting mpg..ps your car should be going over 90 degrees,,i changed sta on my e46 330d and new stats on my 2 present cars ie e90 330d and 335d,,my e90 went from 36 mpg to 42 mpg,,

    mine got done over 3 years ago,,car sold few weeks ago,,had both my other cars in lately for the heater blower wires,,e92 335d and e90 330d
  5. sold my e46 saloon sport with 157 k miles..no where near mint..53 plate (204) bhp..very rusfed rear arches and rusted around the front grille and a few other bits,,seen better days the car,,was very pleased to get £1420,,had spent a bit in the last year on it though
  6. engine has a massive part tp play in these cars,,if its a 320i for example it it aint worth much,,and also the miles will go against it unless its a 330d
  7. if theyaint been swallowed upmby now then kt looks like your safe,,it aint the swirl itself that falls in ,,its the inner bit etc,,the outside stay on,,but id get the mani off and blank asap
  8. damn things,,never worked on my e46 after about 2 months of ownership,,my e90 330d work good,,but on my 335d e92 they dont work,,i just drive like i used to when sensors didnt exist

    MY new D.D

    coz they look s**te...you asked

    MY new D.D

    i dont like heavy modded cars,,and less on a bmw..subtle little mods yes.
  11. when i had my exhaust dropped a couple of times,,was no bother at all,used same original bolts etc
  12. i had 255-35-18 tyres on 9j rear,,rubbed a little when loaded up or pushing it on corners.and speed humps..thats why i went 225-40-18 on jy e46...didnt really looked stretched,,but easy to curb ya lips..mine were polished lips on black rims so didnt notice it that much
  13. rasa

    MY new D.D

    yeh ive still got a soft spot for the e46 shape,,sold mine 2 months ago ish,,already own an e0 330d sport alongside the e46,,but ive now got a nice e92 335d to replace the e46...wish they would make new cars like a retro e46,,,
  14. what tyres though?and they look like they are sticking out to far,,have they got spacers also?
  15. derv all the way for towing a van..i had an old rover 210 derv,,pulled the van easy,,although the van was a small one with a elevating roof,,so was flat also,,god the missus hated it and ended up being a playhouse for my daughter,,only paid £500 for it,,but only used it twice,,still got all the gubbins ie elec hookup cable.towing mirror.water bottles/toilet wste container etc
  16. i jhad 420 ftlbs in my e46..power delivery was great,,no rumble evr,,except when the centre bearing went,,but youd know if that went as the gearstick would shake and the car would only do around 20-30 mph before it would start shaking itself to death,,im 90% sure its the map as ive said,,some folk think they can map cars,,and they can,,but properly.. no..they might get away with getting it right a few times,,,please contact jason from bw chiptune as ive said,,honestly he knows it all,,tuning bmw cars since the 90,s,,and still doing so and also correcting other tuners maps,who have good reputations on facebook etc,,
  17. maybe fuel pump,,but you will have to het the codes fread from a decent reader,,ie inpa etc
  18. and forgot to say,,thats way to much torque for the manual box,,mines at 698nm and thats a little too much ,,my 335d on the other hand can eat it up,,730 nm and 350 bhp,,the auto box is just better with the torque converters etc etc
  19. very poor the e9x forum on here,,..e90 pos or facebook or bimmerforum
  20. it aint been mapped properly,,my e9 330d 305 bhp and 510ftlbs 698nm has a bit of rumble,,and the guy who has just remapped my other car(335d) is going to read the map and put it right..ie jason from bwchiptune,,the map on the 330d was done by durham remaps and i guess they just throw as much as they can at it and dont bother testing it on dyno like jason,,because he says its easy fixable,,he fixes loads of other tuners maps,,he may be a sponsor on here,,
  21. i hd my arch damamged,,but was rusty also,,i had all the arch repaired/painted etcthe arch bit that sticks out was basically flat,,anyway the guy that done mine has a reputation of being cheap and not the best,,anyway the work looked ok but if you got really picky then it wasnt 100%,,it was just my daily car and the worked still looked ok,,and wait for it£100 i was charged,,this was around 3-4 years ago,,the rust had started to come back through,,the drivers arch on the other hand had a little rust at that time,,and bubbling a little in2013 when i bought it,,but when i sold it 4 weeks ago it was terrible,all the way round the arh,,pieces dropping off on the inner lip and it had spread onto the panel between the door and rear arch/wing...if your keeping the car i wpuld get it cut out,,its the only way
  22. or maybe ask someone like jason from bwchiptune,,you never know,,he might know if a different shaft fits
  23. they also look s**te when over modded..some wheels yes,,i loved my factory spoiler when i had mine,,not many with the spoiler
