    hi,, im adam

    i help run corsa-b.co.uk
    my car....



    i have, a e46 328 coupe aswell.
    corsa is for track, bmw is for road. nice days etc etc

    i have a couple of questions about my car, it has done 99k and i just need a little advice.

    1] the parking sensors. . sometimes itll beep once then thats it, and sometimes it wont do anything.

    2] the passenger mirror raises when i go to reverse. is it suppose to do this? i have my mirrors set low so its annoying

    3] this one scares me, my gearshift is notchy, to the point where sometime it feels like it just does not want to get gears.
    at a standstill 1st is hard, and 1st to 2nd isnt pleasent, and sometime going into 3rd too
    it apperas to ease off when warmer.
    i have had a read about, and a oil change may help. im looking at millers or red-line, but not sure which is best, or what grade is best. and how much i need.

    3-a] while im at it i want to change the diff oil too, as above i would like to know whats best and what grade.

    4] when opening the doors. the window seems to catch the frame, i know they drop a little. but it seems slow to do so and catchs the frame.


    5] mods. i do want to improove my car a little. seen pepole talking about depo front indicator lenses, i want smoked ones, seen a few on ebay i like but not seen depo ones, does anyone know where to get them? and what they look like.

    a short shift kit may also help my gear problems, but i dont know what kit is good.
    and weather new linkage bushes, and transmission mounts will help either. or where to source any of them


    many thanks for you time. and any help you can provide me with.

    amd i will endeavour to get a couple of pictures of my car, only had it 4 days, so been busy clearing my garage for it.

    thank you, ive had about 9 odd corsa's.
    bmw is my nice motor. corsa is horrible on road now, purely a track car.
    got a old jetta gti for running around in.

    bmw is a steep learning curve. but i intend to try do rectyfy its little flaws myself.
