    Hi It occurred to me it might be worthwhile putting in the metal gap that the plastic wheel mud guard rests on some kind of filler such as putty so that water doesn't get in and stay there, any thoughts? I eventually finished off the wheel arch painting. It looks a lot easier on YouTube,

    Hi all! Still loving my 630i I picked up in June. She's going in for her ATF change today... Just one tiny detail IS bothering me though. It's these small bits of clear stick-on plastic that I presume are supposed to protect the rear wheel arches. Both sides/pieces are peeling off somewhat, and...

    Just wondering whether anyone has used this type of repair panel on their E46 with success. The bubbling on my panel is only about the size of a five pence piece, but it'll only get worse.

    Hello, My e46 got rusted rear inner wheel arches. The outside part got some rust on it (because of that I started to work on it) but that is now ok. Sadly the inner part was rusted through at a small area, which was not visible with underbody coating. Now there is a superior description of...

    Hi all, Both rear arches started with some rust last year which is showing a surface bubbles now. I've took it to a body shop who said if they do the cheaper repair which consists of sanding rust down and hopefully applying rust remedy that it will still likely return in a few month to a year...

    Afternoon all, Looking for help on something that has stumped two garages. The rear offside sits lower by approximately one inch in comparison to the other arches. When I have passengers or driving up a gradient, the tyre rubs against the inner wheel arch (not constantly, only if going over a...

    Hi, Probably a stupid question but I'm trying to replace the plastic trim underneath either side of the front bumper on my e39. Previous owner has clearly driven over curbs when parking and ruined both sides. Problem is I can't find the parts in question on RealOEM or anywhere. All I can find...

    Hi all Bulb warning on the dash the other day. Seemed to only affect the side lights at first and when I put the full lights on (not full beam) they sorted themselves out. Now it's not working at all apart from on full beam. Pics below of the various light stages. I'm really dreading a arch...

    Hi Guys, The offside rear arch on my 1999 728i has started to bubble with rust. One guy at a garage said to leave it as it is double skinned and would weigh out to around a £1000 to repair. ( cut out offending metal and replace) Is he right or can something else be done. Too much money this...
