  1. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hello, My car is a 51 plate 330D and I have the dreaded 3 lights on the dash which I know indicates there is an issue with the ABS system and more specifically I believe it is the ABS ecu, as the error code is 5DF5 (internal ecu fault). I have removed from a 2002 320D the complete ABS unit...

    Hi guys, Swapped out my standard, manual light grey seats for half leather sports seats in my E81 2008. Apart from the airbag warning lights which I hadn't anticipated on (I disconnected the battery and waited 6 hours...) it all went hunky dory. The seats have the electric bolster...

  7. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Morning folks, I think my suspension clunks are getting worse, and therefore I want to fix it. My problem is I don’t have like £1000 or whatever to do it all in one hit. So my question is, what route can I take to do it in stages? I want to avoid as much re-work as possible, but it’s more...
  8. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hi, this is the first time I've used this forum so I hope I'm posting to the right place! I have had an X-reg (November 2000) 318i SE for the past 6 years and it has served me very well, but has recently developed a lot of problems, although this was expected as it has done 192,000 miles...

    My current dpf has been gutted. I've bought a used dpf and am in the process of cleaning it. When this dpf is fitted I will need to ensure other elements of the engine are operational to perform a regen. From looking up I understand that some regens are passive i.e just happen naturally due...
  10. BMW Tuning Forum
    Total noob to the BMW scene - could anybody point me to any detail about shared components between the M52 and M54 and also any differences between the range. I have read the wikipdeia pages about the two engines so have a very basic grasp. What I am interested in is are the blocks...

    Bit confused by the cable sizes at the moment. I'm going to fit 6.5" components in the front of my car so its a good 5-6 meter run from the amp in the boot to each speaker in the front. I have Autoleads 2.5mm2 cable that I have used previously for 6x9's and for my subs and can't decide if I...

    Hi all, Finally succumbed and took the inlet off (Jeebus its coked up) cleaned the EGR so that the valve actually opens now and was hunting around changing old and brittle vac hoses when I found a bit of a strange thing... From the 4 way vac connector that has pipes leading off to various bits...

    Could really do with some advice please. Does anybody know the names of the components which work the convertible roof? One of the rods under the horse shoe cover, snapped. It looks like a joint. The rod is roughly 12mm thick & around 20" in length. Can I buy this separately & is it easily...
  15. BMW 1 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 1 Series
    In order to vacuum clean the holding bay for my E88 canvas roof (when down), I stopped the roof lowering procedure when both the metal cover and the rear window part of the canvas roof were about vertical. In this position I notice that there was a long piece of 2 to 3 mm black thread, with a...

    Hey guys, I've got some 5.25" Massive Audio components that i want to put in my door cards. I rang my local car audio retailer to price up some speaker adaptors and he said not to bother with 5.25 and just buy some 6.5" components?! Are the 5.25" really not going to be good enough?! He also...

    Hi all, I want to give my standard business (non Hi-Fi or HK) stereo a bit more kick. I'm not an audiophile so don't want to spend £100's and definitely don't want to fit a new head unit (I like the factory look) so was just thinking of a simple 2 channel amp to boost the front components...
