    Hello everyone, I have a 2004 320d touring and I'm getting a ticking kind of noise from the engine when accelerating in first and second gears, perhaps even third but if there is ticking it's nearly inaudible. This only happens at around 2000 rpm to around 3000 rpm. Additionally my car seems to...

    Sold it to a mate two years ago and traded up to an e90 (with the dreaded N47 engine which at only 120k is now making timing chain noises). I'm now disposing of and so is my mate with the e46 I sold him - well cared for with good service history yadda yadda etc. Thing is are these engines...

  14. BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Well I don't want to do that again. I thought jobs on my other car where you need 2 elbows which work in opposite directions to get to stuff was bad enough but even with the headlight out it took about 10-15 minutes for me to clip the new bulb in place and that was after I removed a finger and...

    Just a quick recommendation for Craig from BMWise - There's reference to him in another post on here. He's a former BMW mechanic who's going it alone (in between shifts on his other job) - based in Luton, but sounds like he'll travel to you. I'm down in Twickenham and he was happy to come and...

  20. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Passed first time, x2 advisories for low brake pads front and back (lights not on, so meh). I'd be chuffed if it wasn't for the fact I have one side of the exhaust held up with a piece of a curtain hanger, and the OSF outer ball joint cover is missing and i'm sure that shimmy at 65mph is due to...
