Found you guys by googling a problem that I had with the Beemer.
My name is Martin, and I've just bought a BMW 318i E46.
Nice to see people share a mechanical mind for these cars, rather than just posh toff's who take them to the garage only.
My E46 was a P/X from a customer of mine, it wasn't worth him selling on or "cleaning" up, so sold it to me for scrap value.
Ok I have the change a rear wheel sped sensor, change discs and pads, and personally it needs a darn good service.. It also feels like it needs the CDV removing. All this will happen this weekend.
Then, I'm going to investigate when my throttle pedal feels a bit stiff.
Anyways, happy to be here, speak too again soon.
