  1. No one has any ideas? :/
  2. Hi, yes I'm yet another person with a window fault, but my fault doesn't quite align with anyone else's symptoms. (Coupe) So my passenger window: Goes down correctly using the switch Goes down correctly when opening the door Now it.. Doesn't always return up when the door is closed, and when it does, it doesn't return the full height Doesn't one-press up - I've tried the window coding trick but nothing The first click on the window switch does nothing when pulling up, but the second notch does the first notches job, hold to raise When I hold the unlock button down on the key to open all windows, it opens but slower than on the drivers side When I hold the lock button all windows close apart from the passenger window. Doesn't move an inch. I've been told this isn't the regulator or it wouldn't move at all. It isn't the door switch as the interior lights come on, and the window sometimes goes up but not the entire distance. I've been told the runners do not need greasing as they are fine. I've been quoted £60 + VAT per hour to find out what the hell is wrong with it. Google has no results that help me. Thanks in advance
  3. I went with LED as my headlights are stuck together with resin, took the best part of 4-5 hours to install so didn't want to have to replace.
  4. Thanks for the guide, very helpful. Going to sort out a dimming relay (for when headlights are on) soon once I find out what specified current my eyes run on, they're not the one from your post
  5. Looking at purchasing Angel Eyes and I've noticed a few comments on either CCFL or SMD lights I've heard some people say that CCFL's look better in the dark but SMD during the day, but which is better? Also do these fit a facelift coupe? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RGB-LED-Angel-Eyes-Wifi-remote-android-iOS-HALO-RINGS-E46-COUPE-FACELIFT-/181668213039
  6. Gotta wait till February time to buy a new one though as insurance will go up, gonna get a 325 me thinks

    If anyone knows whether I'd need a third party cage from above to fit the radio answers would be appreciated Thanks
  8. I have to admit, I'm very tempted by the OEM silver
  9. I'm going to get my 32's refurbished, I'm contemplating on the colour. The car is Topaz Blue, and I'm considering both the original silver, or anthracite grey - I think black is too dark on the car.

    Also on the relocation panel, would I need 18mm or 16mm? The only button on there is an ASC button Edit: It's 18mm, cycled over to car and measured (y)

    I'm going to go with the Parrot. Will I need the cage to fit it also or does the one supplied work? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-3-Series-E46-Car-Stereo-Double-Din-Fascia-Surround-Trim-Panel-CT23BM07-/350523188291?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item519ccf6443 vs http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-3-Series-E46-Double-Din-Fascia-Panel-Adapter-Plate-Trim-Cage-Fitting-Kit-/370924923649?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&fits=Plat_Gen%3AE46&hash=item565cd92b01 Also with this second one, does it look better with the centred radio or slightly offset?

  12. I did it myself in the end. To clarify it's the lift that grabs on the jacking points. I forgot my locking wheel nut key so I had to work around the wheel Also, now my O/S front ball joint is fubar, how hard is a wishbone to replace?
  13. Not necessarily as the double din unit in place may be smaller than standard depth.
  14. I have been advised to replace both of these and have purchased the parts. Should I pay labour (cheap, halfords employee) or shove it on myself? Never done a job of this description and the autocenter said I could use their ramp but I'm not 100% on what to do. Anyone else had a similar problem? Also sidenote - There's a small oil leak from the gearbox, is there a common seal that fails?

    Does this also come with the standard parrot functionality? I also have a Parrot MKi9100 And how does the GPS rate?

    Well to be honest all I really want is moderate sound and in-built accurate GPS

    Are the dynavins really worth the money?

    The fitters don't like cutting cars apart I do the fitting service when our fitters aren't in

    http://www.halfords.com/sat-nav-audio/car-audio/dab-radios-car-stereos/pioneer-sph-da120-with-apple-carplay This is the one I'd be getting if I were to get a car play radio, sorry for the confusion. I guess this is a good time to mention I work at Halfords and get a sizeable discount I don't really want to cut apart the car so I may have to find an alternative.
  21. It had a bulb out when I drove it back, started getting dark so i shoved fogs on. I think most of all it improves near vision of the curb and also low-down vision all round
