Hi all,

I'm just a non-German living in Germany with a 2000 e46 316i that I bought for the wife hoping that it'd be a reliable and affordable car for her. I've since come to accept the foolishness of my expectations, but the car's ease of parking, combined with its impressive stability control, have convinced me to keep it nonetheless. Given it's the wife's car and its barely 100HP 4-banger I have no plans on tuning it, rather, I'm just trying to keep the thing running, hopefully affordably. So I'll mainly be searching for threads like "my car makes a whoosh-clunk-BOOM! sound when I turn on the fog lights; what could be wrong?" and "where can I order a new cigarette lighter for less than €845?"
