However, due to all the documented problems on the internet I have always been hyper sensitive to anything unusual and have been expecting things to go wrong at any time. Something I have noticed in the last couple...

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46

    Is anyone good at pulling codes from the dash indications? It's some miles to where I can get a code reader, so I'd like to pull them from the dash if possible. I've had such good luck with this little car that I kind of supposed it would just keep going. I put this on a BMW forum this...

  6. 2001 E46 325Ci M Sport - Eliminating steering wobble at 55+mph

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    So, the E46 I bought has been neglected by the previous owner for the last 9 months or so. However, it had a good service history before that, so i'm trying to bring it back up to spec. Whenever the car hits 55mph or so, it 'wobbles' whenever you hit a dip in the road, and the steering feels...
