    2004 E46 330Cd Boost Problems - FIXED! Hey all, So I've not driven the car much the last few months because of a lower back problem I have, but it seems to have now developed a bit of a problem with the turbo not boosting properly. It's completely random. Sometimes it will boost fine...

    Hi, I am trying to access the starter motor to change it but am struggling to see how the starter motor will come out when i finally get the 2nd E12 torx bolt off. I am working from the top of the car, do I need to remove any coolant/air-con plumbing, glow-plug stuff, or anything else in...

    Good morning, I have a 2004 330cd which I purchased around 10 months ago. It came on BC racing coilovers which made the ride unbearable for daily use so I replaced the rears with OEM standard M-sport suspension (Top mount, shock, springs, dust cover, bump stop, all washers etc). Since then I...

    I've recently bought a E46 330CD. I used to own an N reg 328i M Sport Coupe and have noticed that, recently, prices are well above what I paid for it (£1500 in 2008).| This car is now about the same age as my 328 was when I had that and that got me to thinking about whether it might be an...

    My beemer is currently stage 1 mapped with de-cat exaust and I have just had hybrid turbo fitted. I have been advised to have re-mapped so thinking of doing stage 2 now. I believe I will have to now upgrade intercooler but not sure to which one or how big. Also better air filter and possibly...

    Hi, I have a 330cd with 114k on the clock that I am slowly restoring back to mint and I have a weird issue with the 1st gear. Usually when driving off in 1st the gear stick shakes/knocks side to side but then goes away after 2.5k rpm. This only happens in 1st and doesn't happen all the time...

    Since I bought this 330cd a month or so ago it has only revved to around 4020rpm whereas it should go up a bit higher.

    Hi lads. Needed help on a subject. I'm due to buy a 55 plate 330cd soon and have good idea of everything I wanna do to it. I wanted to know if I would be able to fit an M3 rear bumper (with a CSL rear diffuser) to the car? Would it fit right? As for the exhaust I'm going to get a custom made M3...

    Hi, I am just wanting some opinion on this... My turbo whistles quite loudly when upto 2.5k RPM (I do have a decat) and seems slightly down on power. There is also some oil in intercooler charge piping, and some play in turbo - see video: Do you think my turbo is likely to go soon, and if...
