    Hello! First post on here, I’m afraid I am not the most mechanic minded and I find there is so much information on google that it’s hard to decipher down to your vehicle. I own a 330ci E46 2002 sport in orient blue and I need a newOSF arch as mine is shagged. Does anyone know if for instance...

    (anyone have an idea of how much something like this would cost to repair? Metal still seems solid enough and there are no holes) Rear wheel arch

    Hi - I have a 2008 E90 330D and wondering if rust on the boot lid (around the handle area) is a common occurrence? I haven't had this car for the entirety of it's lifetime however I do know it's been well kept and looked after. I'm sure I've read somewhere that BMW provide some sort of 12 year...

    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 Was going to do a touch up on the wheel arch rust however it is so bad there is upon the removal of the paint a hole in the arch and you can see the black plastic inside the wheel arch, is this fixable with the isopon scratch and stone chip filler or do you have to replace the arch? Thanks...

    I wanna buy a 330i, there is this ridicously cheap one on ebay. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-E46-330i-Manual-2002/163567671447 But the rear arches look terrible, are they replaceable in anyway or would it have to be either the grinding treatment? Or worse welding? Cheers

    Cross post from the 8 series forum as not sure which is most suited... Apologies if this is covered elsewhere but haven't had a lot of luck finding recent results. There's a few issues I'd like dealing with: NS rear quarter, little bubbling on arch, pillar up to left of rear window rust...

    Hello guys, I found an used e36 1.6 or 1.8, not sure about it (the vin number says it's a 1.6, but the owner assured me that it is an 1.8 and there was a problem during registration) with 2 small rusty spot and a bent fender, the price of the car is around €1100, however I'm concerned that...

    I have a nearly 17yr old e46 330d, & it's been suffering for some years from the usual rust these get (which many cheaper makes don't suffer from!), rear arches, front wings etc. So how do the e90s fare? The few that I've seen at work all seem ok, but I see far less BMs at my current work...

    Hi all just looking for some input, I've got rust underneath the sideskirts around the jacking point and along that piece of body work now is that classed as the sill or the floor pan? People are telling me different things that the sill doesn't cover under the car parallel with the jacking...

    Hi All, I’m now beginning to wrap my car up ready for daily duties but when I was changing the rear hatch struts over I noticed some surface rust on the inner skin/panel of my tailgate on both sides. See below pictures taken earlier this evening for reference - It’s just say bubbling on...

    Hi Everyone, I am after some advice. My E46 330ci has a few rust spots here and there, but due to the fact the weather seems to have turned I may not be able to deal with them properly for a few months. Has anyone got advice on temporary rust treatments which I could use to stop the corrosion...

    Hi. I just bought my 1st BMW , i knew the E39 rust areas, and all clear except fuel filler area where there are very very small blisters almost unnoticeable. The area seems a water trap because of lack of a drain. Anyone faced this issue and managed to eradicate the rust? I am planning on...

    Hi! I'm thinking of picking up a late 2008 e91 320d Tourer as a mile muncher. It's generally in good shape except for a bit of rust forming on the tailgate on the right side, just under the rear screen. I've read a few posts suggesting this isn't uncommon, and affects both 3 and 5 series...

    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...
