  1. Front number plates needed?

    id pop down to your local mot tester and ask them, but i think the answer will be unless it was released into production that way (like some of the early lotus 7's for example) you need to leave as is..
  2. M2 coupe Eyes on Gigi

    ooo that is beautiful..... and in this instance i really do mean the car ..
  3. Tcut a good idea?

    As previous post, only option is to flat with fine wet grit/paper, then polish back up. ive done this loads and you don't need to be s professional just be careful.
  4. Will Bmw ever go back to a 5 seater coupe?

    yep just checked, 4 seater also.. Even the M235i is only 4 seats
  5. Will Bmw ever go back to a 5 seater coupe?

    really? Thought they were 4 also? mmmm i'll check that out....
  6. I do miss my e46, in 12 months or maybe before I'll be in the market to lease a new 3 series, I desperately want a coupe but I must have 5 seats, what are my options now with bm?
  7. Unstable revs on idle

    You have any fault codes? I had similar which suggested incorrect mixture (made ref to O2 sensor limits) before racing into changing sensors I checked intake boots and top one was well split. Errors and rough idle now gone, so this was causing issues with extra unmetered air sucking in.
  8. £50 for the stealers to read fault codes?

    I have used my Peake reader on my previous e39's and now my e46, works great. If you pass by shrops any time I'd be happy to read it for ya. Jay.
  9. Could I go back to petrol from diesel

    Great question.... Apart from the usual - how many miles etc etc, I have always found diesel ownership more expensive from a parts point of view and dare I say more problematic too..but maybe this is my poor luck. (pumps/dpf etc etc) But ignoring all that I prefer petrol due to one simple factor - I prefer the sound ! That sounds really lame, but I HATE the diesel tick over but LOVE the tuned note of a tight petrol engine blipping....Like I said yes its lame but the last time I heard there was no such term as Diesel Head ?? For the record I'm not bothered with fuel mpg (only 150 miles per week) but more bothered about how the drive sounds and feels on the road...
  10. mlouie - thanks for the reply - so these are for the msport model, so are you saying that msport wishbones are ok for an SE (but they are stronger??)
  11. My first E46!

    Welcome Ben, Only just bought my first one too (well few weeks now), must admit I knew mine would need a lot of work and it has but the good news is I have found all parts to date really reasonable cost and the car seems very easy to work on..so don't worry, but like the guys say read the prev maintenance section for some guidance.. J
  12. Hey Folks, Just to make sure I don't buy the wrong ones, which front wishbones do I need? Real oem states sport and none... The reason for the confusion is that I'm sure I read somewhere that all 300's "SE or Sport" all have sport suspension as they are the 330...maybe I dreamt it, not sure BUT if that's the case do I need sport front wishbones for my 330ci se?? Reason for change = major play in lower joint, I am assuming other joints will be equally as poor so may as well change all... Jamie
  13. afew changes :)

    Your interior looks mint, don't suppose your now selling your front seats? I'm after some sports fronts...
  14. Head rest screens no sound ?

    Ahhh folks the small red LEDs! Right so it looks like I need some wireless headphones. Are they all typically using the same frequency, I mean does it matter what type I buy?
  15. Head rest screens no sound ?

    Greg - so there are aux inputs in the none widescreen HU ?
