    Hi all,
    I'm new to this site. I have a E30 325 Cabby myself, but my girlfriend bought herself a '04 e46 316 four door at the weekend. I presumed it had a 1.6 engine, but it has a 1.8 engine. only problem is it feels like its a 1.6 or else down on power. Just wondering if there is anything that can be done to tune it up considerably.

    Have you had the BMW fault codes read for the engine, if not then this should be your first port of call. Also you should consider that the e46 is a fairly heavy car for the 1.8 engine to propel along.
