  1. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Completely flumped with this one, this is my second vehicle and have very much enjoyed fault finding (first car was on drip) and working on the car myself without re-mortgaging to take to BMW... Issues I'm getting are as follows: 1) Car sounds like it's running on bricks. Over the slightest...
