    I purchased this car to use through winter as alternative transport but my recent purchase of a track day business means I now need something sportier. I have loved every moment in this car, but sadly it must go. She isn't perfect, but she's very honest and very usable - if you want a car to...

    Hi guys, I have a 320td that takes some cranking to get going. When running, if you take your foot off the accelerator it dies as it refuses to idle, also when you try to drive it, it doesn't want to do anything over 2000rpm under load. I've had BMW scanner 1.4 plugged into it and it came up...

    So, I got it started yesterday after swapping the old fuel filter, draining the tank and replacing all the filters. It does struggle to get started and once it is the revs drop to 5000rpm and keep moving between 5000 and 10,000rpm. It does accelerate and will not cut out until you take your foot...

  15. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hey guys. Been pulling y hair out a little with this one. Ok, so the car's only done 70K miles and has always run as sweet as a nut until about a month ago. Upon first turning the engine, it lumps and mumbles into life instead of a growling burst of life that it used to give. Idle seems ok...
