  3. 2003 E46 Sliver 318i Subtle Project (picture heavy)

    Got the car in December 2012 after my old Vauxhall Astra had been written off in a hit and run. Got pretty lucky when finding this car, had full BMW service history and only 2 owners. 42,000 miles on the clock and very clean inside and out. Heres a list of some of the stuff that has already...

    Hi All, I'll post a intro thread soon, but I am shortly to be picking up a e46 325ti Compact and was hoping for some wheel inspiration as I plan to swap them out at some point. In general I'd just love to see some members Compacts to see what i could get mine too! Many thanks :)

  8. 2000 e46 318i subtle 'fapping' sound from rear on motorway

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Last month or so my 318 touring has developed a weird subtle sound when cruising on the motorway. The best I can describe it is it sounds very similar to the fapping sound you get when a passenger window is open in the back and it starts up a whomp whomp whomp sound due to the air pressure...

    BMW X Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of X Series
    Hi As per the title am getting a subtle misfire between 2k to about 3.5k rpm, when cruising between 40 to 60 mph. Occurs about every 3 seconds, seems to not be rpm related in that the frequency of the misfire does not increase with the rpm. At higher rpm or more throttle, problem goes away. I...
