  1. Oooh this is nice. Off the top of my head I would put it up for £5k to allow for movement in the price. It's clearly a well looked after car, and the mods are very tasteful.
  2. Okay I didn't know that! Thanks guys. Via Mobile Telecommunications Device
  3. Just to add to the questions on this topic, where does the pink rear view camera trigger wire plug into? I've got my camera all hooked up and working on Car Record, but how do I trigger the camera to come on screen automatically when I go into reverse? Also, has anyone else had issues with a very faint whining interference from the front speakers? Thanks
  4. What does that mean... Not repairable/replaceable?
  5. Hi guys, I've searched the forum and couldn't find a clear answer. Where is the door open sensor on my E46 Coupe? When I open the drivers door it doesn't sense that the door is open, so it doesn't pop up on the dash, the interior lights don't come on and the glass doesn't auto drop so I can't close it. Where is the sensor and is it a fairly straight forward DIY to change? Also, I get a lot of wind noise coming from the drivers and passengers windows. Generally where is the most common places of adjustment to ensure a more airtight seal? Thanks guys Naj
  6. Wiring an amp is pretty simple. There are various ways of doing it and everyone likes their preferred method. For me, I tap into the factory wiring. The power for the amp is direct from the battery, the remote is using the remote from your Sony headunit and the signal is from the RCA's from your headunit to your amp - easy peasy. For wiring the speaker terminals to the front speakers.. Here's what I've done - Get yourself a spare aftermarket headunit wiring loom, workout which 4 wires are for the front speakers = FL+ FL- FR+ FR- Cut the wires and spring back the wire thats heading back through the loom and towards the speakers and solder and heatshrink on your speaker cable - carefully marking which is which. Then run the speaker wires back through the car and attach them to the amp speaker terminals = done! For the rears take out the side panels in the boot and wire them directly to the amp bypassing the factory wiring completely.
  7. I can't find any other car (Except another E46 but a 6pot) that I can afford that I prefer over my E46. So I'll be keeping mine till it dies... or till I can afford something more desirable! Saying that.. I don't get to drive mine as much as I'd like to. I drive a van to work daily, so the BMW sits on the drive most of the week anyway.. but this isn't out of choice, I don't think my 46 is special enough to be a 'weekend' car. It's only my weekend car because its my only car lol
  8. Hey guys. I'm in need of some new droplinks. I bought these about 18 months ago along with my JOM coilovers - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Shortened-Drop-Links-Pair-BMW-E46-3-Series-all-models-/230367700486?hash=item35a2fc2606:m:mnhj303j-bqyjRjOLBNwYhw While my car was at my mechanics getting the prop centre bearing done he did say I should change the front droplinks as one side has apparently snapped off! I no longer drive the car every day and I haven't had a chance to look at it yet. So I'm looking at new droplinks.. The hyundai coupe ones - http://www.eurocarparts.com/ecp/c/Hyundai_Coupe_2.0_2005/p/car-parts/suspension-and-steering/suspension/anti-roll-bar-components/?632850045&1&3f2e3645a11e43fc3f7436aecf0ae607ec87bdf5&000016 Will be about £36 But then I saw these - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-3-Series-E46-JOM-Tuning-Shortened-Front-Drop-Links-740228-/291381871988?hash=item43d7b68574:g:rIUAAOSwMmBVzxpX JOM Drop links...?? Which ones would you get..? Have you got..? Thanks guys
  9. I'd go silver! I'd also look around when buying to choose a set with more aggressive offsets Via Mobile Telecommunications Device
  10. My wheels in such a bad state... Need to get mine done ASAP! What's their quickest turn around I wonder? Via Mobile Telecommunications Device

    Gear knobs

    Hahahaha Okay awesome. Thanks for the response guys, I get the idea. I might get the standard one for £27 or whatever it is. Having looked at more OEM pics that original link I posted was a ludicrous idea. lol Via Mobile Telecommunications Device
  12. If you want a meatier set up you're better off buying new wider wheels. I know mine isn't hugely meaty.. But imagine that with wider rubber! That's on 225/35! Via Mobile Telecommunications Device

    Gear knobs

    Hey guys. I've read about the preferred gear knobs and now they make a difference to the drive and the feel. But I'm reluctant to spend £70 on a clubsport one and £90 on a stormwerks one. Has anyone had any experience with these? http://www.ebay.co.uk/ulk/itm/361209095812 The only thing I don't like about it is the massage ///M logo. But my existing one has pealing back leather and all sorts and I need to change it. Along with my steering wheel which is in a crappy state too lol If the above link isn't to a good product.. Can anyone give me suggestions for around the same money.. I can justify up to £30~ for a nice new gear knob. Cheers guys Via Mobile Telecommunications Device
