Anyone have any info on whether I can leave the screw out...

    Hi folks, This is my first time posting, I'm considering getting me 2005 320cd 150hp remapped, I've been told 190bhp is possible and better fuel economy. My Question is "Is it worth the €250"? I love my e46 and don want to do her harm by making this upgrade.. I'd appreciate any feedback please.

    Hi everyone, just a bit of advice needed please on using a damaged piston. Swirl flap damage to top of piston has been smoothed off as much as possible, and all high spots and gouges taken out. This has resulted in the edge of the swirl pot being compromised. See the attached photo. I know the...

    Greetings! Ever since I have owned my 320d (coupe facelift 150hp) it has had a very annoying intermitent fault of loosing boost/power. It's remedied very easily by switching the car off for a few seconds then re starting, which cures it for a while. There is no eml or any other warning lights...

    Hi all, I noticed today my car suddenly, out of the blue, started making a loud tapping mechanical sound. Upon closer inspection I saw that the Aircon belt had fallen off and was lying on the undertray. I looked at some diagrams of the E46 belts and noticed they all seemed to have tensioners...

    2006 320cd doing 29mpg. I managed 193 miles on half a tank of diesel, 180 miles were on the motorway and i wasn't thrashing it. 13 miles were around town and urban areas. Why is the mpg so bad, any ideas? There are no obvious signs other than awful fuel consumption. Reset the onboard computer...
