  1. No problem. Just be careful, I did the same but the fault returned after a short while. If it does then they will need replacing. Get the codes read to confirm though - could be the ABS rings on the rear driveshafts that have corroded

    Ive got a list

    Give Nick Jupp a bell - he's a BMW breaker in Swanley. Really nice guy and knows his stuff.. Always provides top quality parts and usually has everything in stock. He's also not the type of guy to wrap it in one layer of bubble wrap then wonder why it arrived in 15 pieces. He properly packs things to the point where sometimes it can be a PITA to just get to the part you ordered! lol. Contact details on his Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/nick.jupp.5
  3. Pretty sure they're incompatible.. Completely different drivetrains as far as I know..
  4. Brake pads wouldn't be standard on any service. It's usually an extra
  5. Does the power steering still work when it happens? I know it could be difficult to tell when at speed.. Have you checked PAS fluid levels? If it matches engine speed i'd say it's something on the belt drive (hence asking about power steering). So either Power steering pump, water pump, crank pulley, tensioners or AC pump.
  6. Apologies for the basic question.. But does it have the purple tag on it? The 067 racks have a different part number - 7852974679 As per: The part number you gave comes back with normal rack results, with no purple tag..
  7. Yep, I get you. But again, nothing M3 about them. lol They were an option on normal models but just standard on the M3 so I get what you mean. Agree though - look a million times better than a crappy reflector bowl.. They're MASSIVE on the E46!
  8. No such thing as M3 headlights.. They're Xenons.. They were probably only introduced in 2002 and it was spec'd on yours from new. I think the only variations of Xenons were either normal or bi-Xenon (push stalk away and a flap opens up so the cut-off is gone).
  9. I get ya.. If anything i'd rather get new just because you can never guarantee how burnt out the 2nd hand ones are if you get me? You could blow £150 on 2 2nd hand headlights but they're just as burnt out as yours Be much easier if there was a direct fit, redesigned bowl from a later car available.. Boooooo!
  10. How much were the bowls and where from? So far i've seen this: https://www.retrofitlab.com/xenon-projectors-1/aharon-e46-r-bi-xenon-projectors-bosch-al-design-1.html? Sorry, just re-read your post! lol.
  11. If main beam is good then the output is fine. It's probably the adjustment. May be worth taking it to a MOT testing station to see if they're not wound down? There's a screw in the headlight that you can turn to point them back up. Saying that, I think my OEM xenons are sh*t these days too.. About as bright as my wife's Astra halogens. But then my bulbs are probably 7-8years old..
  12. A CV joint inside the diff? No, there's one in the middle where the centre support bearing is and then splines at each end. Sounds like one of the diff oil seals have gone.
  13. Yup, warm it up and put a plastic pry tool under there to get it out. Clean up and fit the new one.
  14. Driveshafts are 100% uprated as the 330i/330d ones are the same.
