Hi just thought I would introduce myself, I'm rob 36 from Southampton and have just brought my first BMW, I've always been into cars but dare I say it been a bit of a ford man my first car was an xr2 then I moved on to an rs turbo then an rs2000 then a cosworth, I sold the cosworth to buy a house and my cars stoped for a bit until I had a bit more money and got myself an evoiv then I sold this and got a mondeo st220, I kept this for a while got married had three kids and ended up with a zafira 😂 Anyway over the last month my wife said we should get a second car something sensible so what's more safe and sensible than an e46 lol managed to pick and nice example up on the auto trader for a good price and I love it, so there you go first bmw and one happy owner 👍👍

Hi Everyone,

 

I'm just outside the M25 in Surrey.

Currently driving an E46 320td

We also have an E90 M3 with competition pack, and X6 and an old E39 5 series in the family.

Needless to say, mine is the only one that has any mechanical problems. Arse.

 

You will probably see me crying about my 4191 error code soon.

I've just joined this forum but have used it as a reference when doing all kinds of work.

 

It's about time I gave something back. Will be documenting all the various things I'm going to have to do to my car and posting them on here.

Hello, 

Im Ben and just introducing myself on here. 

I live in Southampton

I've just bought a facelift 2003 E46 330ci Clubsport in Titan silver. 

This is my fifth BMW and I love them.

just had her serviced yesterday and fully inspected at KWR Services which is my local E36/E46 specialists, and we have found the dreaded boot floor crack. 

So, the car is booked in to have all the remedial work carried out. 

Totally gutted but at least I know the car will be spot on when it's finished. 

Mine is the one on the left.

Hi everyone. I'm not sure how lively this thread is, looks like it's been going for years.

My names Scott, I'm 25 I've got a a 2004 320Ci Sport that I've owned for about 18 months. I love it!

Beautiful motor there Scott, as I was reading your post I was thinking this sounds exactly like myself i.e. age, time of ownership, year of car etc.....Lol, only difference is I've got a 330ci.

Your e46 is sitting really nice, I assume it's on coilovers?

I also noticed the side skirt and front splitters, they look sweet!

Tony,

 

I have recently had to get rid of me E36 M3 for a more "sensible" family weekend car and have an ACS3 Touring - supercharged. I am struggling like mad to find out any servicing information - it cant be the same as a standard 330i and I will only do a few k miles per year and it will get oil changes regularly - do you have any contact or info on servicing?

 

Oil filters are standard - air filters are not and I have been told you can no longer get them but they can be cleaned and re-oiled. Also the supercharger belt is made by Gates and you can get hold of them - but I know little else about what additional servicing elements need doing. I appreciate that they are not highly strung in terms of pressure but they cant be the same as a 330i for servicing surely?

Hi Bigalx

im out of the country atm but when I'm back I'll dig out all the info I have, I've got all the original docs and brochures with the car, it's also previously had a complete new charger, a few years ago so I have the receipt with all the part numbers for the belts.

So I'll send you what I have.

Thanks. Yeah it's on coilovers, I didn't want to go too low. There's a rear diffuser too but it's difficult to see on the photo. That's my only regret, it's not powerful enough. I've spent too much to sell it for something else now and it's such a clean car. I've spared no expense on it. Only on 82000 too 😊

Hi everyone,

 

I'm Carl, living in Brecon mid Wales Had a 2000 Imola red 330D MSport until 2011 when we had that really bad snow and ice which completely immobilised me so decided to get a 4X4... Of course we haven't had anything like it since !!

So I decided to get rid of the Hilux Surf and go with another E46 and got myself a 2002 Mora 330D MSport Individual which needs some TLC but I fell in love with the moment I saw her :)
