    Hi Gang, I have a few annoying scratches on the arm rests (those attached to the doors) on both sides of the cabin, they're pretty deep (previous owner) and wondered what my options are other than replacement? Is there a transfer I could apply over the top perhaps to mask them for instance...

    Hi, long story short - I bought a Frankenstein. My 2000 bmw e46 320d had facelift front when I was buying it, but it turns out that the engine/ecu was swapped as well. It used to be 1.6 petrol, and they basically swapped half of the car. The result was bunch of errors. Slowly I'm fixing them...

    So I'm putting leather in my e36. Guy I bought it off installed everything except the passenger seat because it's got the airbag cable attached (his words- I have little clue) my question is whether a garage will have problems swapping the seats without screwing up the airbag or whether it's...

    My e46 325tds started turning the injector light on. It started coming on maybe once a week with the engine warm after driving it for 10mins+. Then it moved to coming on at start up. Now it has progressed to staying on all the time. I had a chat with a local mechanic guy and he recons it is the...

    Hi If I put larger diameter wheels on the rear of my car, how does this affect the gearing? I've heard that you’ll gain acceleration and lose top speed or vice versa. Which way round is it, can anyone give me a definitive answer? :confused

    I've been reading up on peoples horror stories about sub frame tears on the E46:eek. Can anyone tell me if the Tourer's suffer in the same way? Some people seem to have had the tear fixed by BMW free of charge, is this still the case after ten years?
